Greece in December : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In December, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 417 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 200 €

  • Tourist season: low
