Our Greek and other European partners rely hugely on the UK visitor market for their livelihoods. They have asked us to reassure travellers that they are open for guests and are ready to welcome visitors as friends and with open arms. Choose a European summer holiday in 2016 – the sun is shining brightly.

If you have any questions about travelling to Europe with Sunvil, please call our travel experts on 020 8568 4499 for Greece and Cyprus and 020 8758 4722 for our other European destinations - Portugal, the Azores, Italy, Sicily and Scandinavia.

You can also refer to ABTA’s frequently asked questions here.



For many, the key question is whether your holiday will be more expensive?

We guarantee that bookings already made with us will not be subject to a price increase – that has always been our philosophy. We will keep a close eye on the market and will respond as appropriate depending on developments – but, at present, holidays to Greece represent incredible value and we do not see this changing this season. Who can beat 50% off normal prices for holidays to some of the Greek islands, from £389 pp for a one-week holiday inclusive of flights, transfers and accommodation?

The rate of exchange from Sterling to Euro is currently trading at 1.23. Whilst this is a lower trading rate than in recent years it is worth noting that our currency has been trading between 1.24 and 1.29 for much of 2016. It is also worth remembering that the cost of living in most southern European destinations is lower than our own and as such your money will still go far. Below are the latest prices from our representatives across Greece and Cyprus*.
