I've already booked my tickets to Greece for this summer but I want to book tickets to smaller islands within Greece. Can I use a travel agent to book this within Greece? Will it be helpful to do so or should I just book online?

Honestly people don't use travel agents anymore...there's not really a huge benefit to them unless you don't want to do your own research about the nicest places to visit in Greece

Having worked in Tourism in Mykonos I would use a local travel agent for sure...is still the best option when once in Athens for example, many professional Travel Agents giving superb advice and really depends on how much time have,the best rates also at the last minute booking, again depends on budget and requirements, there will always be a requirement for a travel agent.... especially in destinations like Greece where the inter island travellers depend on local travel agency all the time, get there and you will see what I mean, just pop in to a travel agency and you will be surprised how much information and knowledge they have....I have always travelled like that when I was younger.. Happy Holidays!

You can definitely use a travel agent while in Greece, but you can also pull off booking the travel on your own. All you need as an internet connection and a phone! Sometimes it does make it easier. Try to work with travel agents that have a good reputation. You never know what's out there!

That's true, I'd only recommend using a reputable travel agent. Just like it's important to use a reputable booking website.

So true! That is one of the reasons why I don't usually use the travel agent option. The few times I have, it was because of a recommendation fro someone I trust.

It seems that these days it's harder to even get recommendations for travel agents. Most have switched to other tourist jobs in the industry

Wow, I didn't know. It's been a long time since I have even tried to use one.

These days with covid and how the tourist industry is changing, especially in Greece everyone has to learn to adapt
 

Why is Zakynthos called Zante sometimes?

I've always wondered this about this beautiful island

Where is the best place to party in Greece (besides Mykonos)?

My daughter is vaccinated and really wants to go out and have fun in Greece this summer. Where can she go besides Mykonos? I think it's a little too expensive for her to go at such a young age
