With its hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters, Greece experiences a Mediterranean climate. Winters in Greece are cool and humid in the north and the mountainous zone. Sometimes cold air from northern Europe can spread south into Greece. Bring snow to most mountains, while the coasts are kept warm by the high sea temperatures.
The summer can be quite hot in Greece, mainly in the south of the peninsula, with high nocturnal temperatures of usually 28-33°C, but sometimes even 40°C. Thunderstorms are quite common especially in the northern areas. The Mediterranean climate in Greece has often local variations. Surrounded by warm seas and with mountains close by, the coast always has a breeze; mountain areas are usually cooler with clear sunny skies, but sometimes local showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon. Hot air rising from the sea can cause heavy thunderstorms especially in early autumn, but these bring often the only summer rain that rapidly evaporates.
Please check with your airline your luggage allowance.
Light T-shirts and cotton clothes are recommended for the summer, while warmer clothes are necessary for the winter.
Passengers should also carry travel adapters so they can charge their electronic items in their hotel room (as the sockets in Europe and elsewhere vary from those in the UK). Passengers may also want to carry a small travel iron, hair dryer, kettle etc, as many hotel rooms will not have these facilities.
Your mobile phone may be able to receive calls whilst on holiday, you can check with your network operator to switch on the roaming feature of your mobile, there is usually an additional charge to receive incoming calls whilst aboard.

We also advice our passengers to keep some change in coins on them whilst on tour as using toilets in many parts of Greece is not free.
Car seats are not provided on coaches but passengers should carry car seats with travelling infants for comfort and safety. Most coaches will not have hot water to heat up milk bottles (not suitable for drinking). Therefore it is the passengers responsibility to make sure of necessary arrangements for any children in their group.
Milk and baby food cannot be provided by the hotel or restaurants and passengers are advised to carry ready to drink milk whilst on tour.

Passengers with children in their group will not be seated near the front due to EU regulations. Please note that all seats on the coach are the same, and have the same level of comfort, do not be disappointed if your seats are near the back of the coach. Your holiday experience will not be ruined due to this.
