Choose Greece for your long awaited holiday

Whether your idea of heaven on earth is relaxing on a gorgeous sandy beach or dancing into the night with newly discovered friends the Greek Islands should be top of your list of must see destinations and with travel flights direct from the UK to the major Islands it could not be simpler getting there when things get back to normal.

Your choice of island will depend on the sort of holiday you want as some islands are serenely quiet and only have a few small bars and restaurants whereas others have more of a party atmosphere with bars and nightclubs open until the early hours.

Many holidaymakers like the idea of booking an all-inclusive stay when they are planning a holiday, but it is better in Greece to be either self-catering or bed and breakfast as there are so many fantastic restaurants and bars offering very reasonably priced food and drink in all the main holiday resorts.

Excursions around the Islands or to a different Island are advertised in many places and are a good opportunity to see the stunning scenery without the hassle of hiring a car and driving. It is usually cheaper to book these direct with the local guides rather than through the travel company you booked your holiday with.

Safari holidays will be back

Although it is probably unwise to go on a safari holiday at the moment the hope is that in the near future safari holidays will be back on the cards for those wanting an unforgettable holiday adventure. What is possible at the present time is booking that safari holiday as many companies are open for business and actively encouraging travellers to book for the latter part of the year and next year. Most of these travel companies are offering a guarantee that any holiday booked with them can be transferred to a different date without charge giving holiday makers the confidence to book knowing that if anything changes they will not be out of pocket.

Before booking that incredible safari experience it is a good idea to do a bit of research on the area you want to visit and the type of safari experience you want as there are a variety on offer ranging from a luxurious hotel stay with daily wildlife reserve excursions to a full-blown, back to basics adventure where you will be camping under canvas in the African bush.

A safari holiday can even be combined with a beach holiday if that is what you enjoy as South Africa has some breathtakingly beautiful beaches along its coast.

Are you fully covered?

Although a traditional beach holiday either at home or abroad is still a popular choice for holiday makers many people are considering an exciting adventure holiday instead where they can try out activities that they would not normally do such as taking a safari in South Africa, visiting the ancient temples of India or trekking the Inca Trail however to avoid the possibility of costly medical bills in the case of illness or accident it is important that comprehensive travel insurance is arranged before travel.

It is essential that the appropriate level of travel insurance is purchased if you are considering an adventure type holiday as the normal level of cover may not cover what may be considered risky pursuits. The terms and conditions of any policy that you are thinking about taking out should be read thoroughly to check which specific activities are covered and if in doubt a telephone call to the insurers should clarify things.

If you are an older traveller it is worth noting that after the age of sixty-five travel insurance premiums usually increase but it is unwise to travel without insurance as medical costs can be exorbitant if you find yourself injured whilst on your trip. Any pre-existing medical conditions, however small should be declared when applying for cover but many insurance companies, as long as the conditions are stable will still provide cover albeit with an additional premium.
