Finally, make sure you’ve got everything you for a hassle-free trip!

  • When exploring the Greek islands, I always pack my Osprey backpack, the most loyal travel partner I’ve had in the last 5 years of travels. It’s sturdy, light, roomy, and super comfortable to jump on and off the ferries! I just love it. To visit the old town, the archaeological sites, and the museums, I opt for this little crossbody bag, super practical and roomy.
  • When driving around the islands, I always pack my Nikon D7200, I’m lost without it. In summer I also carry good sunscreen lotion, the sun in Greece can be pretty aggressive.
  • Greece is a fairly safe destination, however, I’m sure you know that it’s always better to travel with an insurance policy for complete peace of mind. My favorite? World Nomads. Already left home? Buy your travel insurance online now!
  • Always bring with you a good travel guide! The best Greek Islands Travel Guide I’ve found so far is the last edition by Lonely Planet.
  • Airfares to Greece can vary immensely from one airline to the other, make sure you always compare ticket prices with a powerful search engine. Island hopping can be really comfortable with an airplane, but nothing beats the romantic experience of traveling by sea. I always choose Direct Ferries to visit the Greek islands or to travel directly from Athens. It has a powerful search engine to get the right ticket you need!
  • If you want the comfort of a hotel, you can always check the fees and reviews on Their Genius Loyalty Programme allows me to find better fees. As they say, the more you stay with them, the more rewards you get.
  • Road trips in Greece are the most authentic way to explore. Find the cheapest rental car using a good car rental search engine. Discover Cars searches over 500 trusted rental companies for you to find the best deal. Compare prices for rental cars in Crete here.
  • Sometimes, the best way to get to know a place better and make the most of your time is to join an organized tour. GetYourGuide has a great selection of proposals that help you save time and money. From cooking lessons to archaeological site tours, skip-the-line attractions, and even airport transfer!
