Other important information

Greek Accommodation Tax
*As part of its comprehensive strategy to finance the reconstruction efforts following devastating forest fires and floods, the Greek government has introduced a new accommodation tax, which has officially taken effect this January 2024. Known as the “climate resilience levy,” this tax represents a significant departure from the previous bed tax and is structured to be paid by tourists at their lodging upon check-in. This fee will vary depending on the travel season. From March to October, the new tourist tax will increase accommodation costs. The fees for hotels will increase as follows: 3 euros per night for three-star hotels, 7 euros per night for four-star hotels and 10 euros per night for five-star hotels. From November to February the rate will vary from 1,5 euro to 4 euros, depending on the hotel category.

Please note: Above mentioned taxes are not included and travellers are required to settle these fees locally, in the local currency, directly at the accommodation.
 
TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER 
Tour Guide
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group.  
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.

Visas

A tourist visa is not required for Europe for stays up to 90 days if travelling on an Australian or New Zealand passport. 
 
Please note: Passengers who are not Australian or New Zealand citizens must check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required. It is also important to note, some areas of employment such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may in turn affect the type of application required.
