Voice of Travelers to Athens

Outstanding vacation in Athens

I am Ken from Spain. Last winter, I took a break from work and flew to Athens for vacation. I had a dilemma in choosing the best airline to Athens until a colleague suggested the best airline that offered cheapest ticket to Athens. I bought a ticket to Athens online after the referral and buying the ticket online was cheaper compared to visiting the travel agents who sold their ticket more expensive. “When purchasing a ticket to Athens, it is advisable to purchase your ticket weeks prior to your departure, ticket are cheaper during this period”, he added. I traveled using Austrian Airlines who apart from being cheaper, also offered a 10% off their ticket for any ticket bought within the festive period. The travel experience and staying in Athens was awesome. Athens residents are very hospitable and friendly people. I came back rejuvenated and I am on course to achieve my goals and I would recommend any one to take a vacation in Athens. The city is beautiful and charming.
