A Santorini Holiday During & After COVID-19

The coronavirus has undoubtedly sent the world running scared for the past few months. Peoples’ lives, businesses, and economies have experienced major setbacks. The travel and hospitality industry in particular has suffered a major blow as no country wants to risk further infection.

The good news, however, is that Santorini is ready and waiting to accommodate you on your next holiday.

A happy announcement in the midst of chaos is that Santorini is absolutely Covid-19 free! That’s right, Greece is ready to open its doors for happy travelers who want to experience Santorini in all its glory.

What is the Current Situation in Greece?

Though the coronavirus has made its way to Greece, many countries and articles from across the globe have praised Greece for its prompt, effective, and diligent action against the pandemic.

As said by Bloomberg:

“…Greece is setting an example for the world with a swift response to the coronavirus epidemic. Greek leaders credit preparedness and a disciplined population. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis asked officials for a virus response plan in January. He praised widespread compliance with lockdown measures…”

The Wall Street Journal has also praised Greece for managing the spread of the pandemic admirably.

What About Santorini Specifically?

As mentioned before, Santorini is 100% safe and Covid-19 FREE!

This makes it the perfect destination for travel in the coming months during and after the virus. While there aren’t any coronavirus cases, the hospital is still ready for action in the event of a recorded case.

Furthermore, they have admirable health protocols, so even the flights and hotels are safe.

These include:

Personal Safety Measures

Remember your mask and disinfectant! It’s still important to maintain personal hygiene.

Private Tours Versus Group Tours

It remains the best choice to practice social distancing. Why not go on a private, up-close and personal private tour with Santorini Best Tours? Besides, you’ll have a much more intimate experience of Santorini this way.

Private Transport Versus Public Transport (Taxis, Buses, etc.)

Being in close proximity with other people is still a risk you don’t want to take. Rather book private transport and get from point A to point B safe and sound.

There you have it! Enjoy the absolute hospitability and beauty Santorini Best Tours has to offer. Don’t let Covid-19 keep you from experiencing the wonders of Santorini.
