New data ranks the most sought-after Greek islands by noth tourists and locals.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – HomeToGo, a marketplace offering the world’s largest selection of vacation rentals, released its ‘Greece Travel Trends Report’ revealing the most affordable times to travel to some of the country’s most popular destinations, based on an analysis of its internal search data*. With travelers eager to enjoy the stunning Mediterranean nation following its reopening this summer, HomeToGo examined pricing and demand for well-known tourist escapes, as well as local hidden gems perfect for those seeking a more authentic experience.

“There’s extraordinary pent-up demand for international travel right now, with desire stronger than ever for travelers hoping to visit dreamy bucket-list destinations like Greece, and this is evident by the increased search demand we’re seeing across HomeToGo as U.S. travelers eagerly search for vacation rentals across the Mediterranean,” said Caroline Burns, Head of PR and Travel Expert at HomeToGo. “Summer is known as the heart of high season in a seaside gem like Greece, so for those that want to visit when the crowds and prices are most likely to decrease, fall and winter are undoubtedly a more preferred time to book a trip.”

Whether travelers are looking to explore the most popular sights of the quintessential Greek islands, or experience the quaint, charming Peloponnesian villages frequented primarily by locals, HomeToGo has compiled its top destination recommendations ranked by price to help travelers plan the perfect, affordable Greek getaway.
