Just curious if anyone has postponed their plans for Greece this summer, or even last summer as a result of covid. If so, what is the process and what did you do? How did you end up rescheduling everything?

Airlines will usually reschedule you without a fee.
Make sure you are vaccinated prior to going or take a rapid test I think 72 hours prior to departure, you should check with the Greek Embassy or your Airline for what's required.

Thanks for the question! For myself and my family we are planning a nice long trip to Greece and islands next Summer (of 2022). Although, I know many Greeks (and non-Greeks) that are planning to travel to Greece for vacation this Summer as well!!

Nope, but I'm about to get some tickets. I went last year during August too.

Three couples cancelled our May 2020 trip and have rescheduled it for September this year. We had a hard time getting money back from Norweigian Airlines. Aegean Airlines would not refund since they were still flying. We had a Villa rental that tried to only offer a six month reschedule but Airb&b got us a full refund. The car rentals gave us a full refund with no problem. The all-inclusive or our second week also gave us a full refund with no problems. We booked this year paying extra for the availability to cancel with no fees.

Yes. If our borders (Australia) were not closed we would have attended Despina and Milton's wedding in Chania Crete. Sydney us in lockdown again. Not sure for how long this time - Delta mutant. Stay safe. Stay connected

That's frustrating!! At least you got a refund from some places

Stay safe!! Hopefully you will be able to attend some events next year
 
Are tickets getting super expensive? Where are you flying from?
I'm flying from the USA. When I purchased my tickets, I saw tickets from $600 - $1700. I didn't get the $600 because I didn't trust the airline companies who would be flying me at that price... I wish the prices were the same as last year (I got tickets for $350)

Wow $350 one way?? That's some of the best prices i've ever heard of. I didnt realize they got so low because of covid

All my holidays (except this coming September) have been cancelled by the suppliers 😢 My bookings have all fallen either side of times when we could travel. I had my money back quickly with no problem though.
Fully expecting September to be cancelled, just playing the waiting game now.

Several times, no thanks to idiot Boris Johnson. Finally driving down on Tuesday, provided he hasn’t pissed off the EU countries we’re travelling through
