What's the cheapest month to fly to Greece?

Avoid the peak season of July and August if you want to avoid the crowds and extremely hot weather. Keep an eye out for our special offers or search our low fare finder.
Is Greece cheap to visit?
Greece is one of the most affordable destinations in Europe, with fresh, affordable Mediterranean cuisine at the many tavernas and reasonable prices for accommodation. When planning your trip, keep in mind that Mykonos and Santorini are slightly more expensive so it pays to travel there in the off-peak season.
Is it easy to get around Greece?
If you’re on the mainland visiting Athens or other towns, it’s relatively easy to get around on buses. If you’re island-hopping, the best way to get around would be by hiring a car or scooter or taking a ferry. Or sit back and let us take care of everything and book one of our exciting Greece holiday packages.
If you want to go off the beaten path and explore in your own time, hire a car with British Airways and collect Avios on every rental.
