Plan Your Trip to Glyfada Before Your Arrival
Travel to Greece has become more popular in recent years. Its popularity has also led to a marked increase in the cost of the airfare to get there. In fact, airfare to Greece is among the most expensive among European destinations. The average cost of a 7 day trip to Glyfada, which is located just near the town of Oia, is roughly $1,283 for an individual and nearly double that for a group of four.
So if the trip is in June or later, then airfare is likely one of your biggest expenses. However, there is good news. You can often reduce your flight costs by booking your trip to Glyfada in advance. The good news is that the luxury hotel that you will be staying in is not located very far from the main attractions of the place, so even if it was expensive to fly to Greece from your home or office, the vacation rentals are likely to be less than the cost of your plane ticket. This is the beauty of vacation rentals.
Before I tell you how you can save money when taking a trip to Glyfada, let’s examine the daily expenses of visiting this beautiful resort town. Assuming that you will be staying in a three-star hotel (which costs just over two thousand dollars) and that you will be taking a seven-day trip, then the total daily expenses will be: $400 per night for a single person, $600 per night for two people, and a daily cost of about twenty dollars for a couple. This gives you about an eighty percent savings. Now multiply these two figures by seven days and you will see how much of a savings this type of vacation rentals can be.
The next thing you need to do is research which hotels are located in close proximity to Glyfada. Most of these hotels are located on the beach, so there will be plenty of parking space and convenient access to the rest of the resort. The only problem with hotels in this area is that they can get very busy at peak times, especially during the summer months. If you can schedule your trip during other times of the week, then you will be able to get a room in a much more quiet hotel without having to wait as long for your turn to be seated. Of course, if you do not mind crowds, then you may want to consider traveling to the south part of the island where there are fewer hotels.
The next thing you need to do is figure out what all you will need to bring with you on your trip. For example, if you are going to be swimming in any of the hot springs in Glyfada, then it would be wise to take some swim wear. At the very least, you should make sure that you have towels and a light sleeping bag. These items can all be found in any of the hotel stores around the resort area, but it may be helpful to ask the hotel if they can place them at the various waterfalls in the area.
Finally, you need to plan your itinerary before your trip. This is an important step, simply because there will be many different things you will want to see while you are in this beautiful part of Costa Rica. In order to ensure that you do not miss anything, you will want to make a list of the sites you would like to see while you are in the area. Since most of these sites are well hidden, you might find it helpful to use a map or even rent a car so that you can easily get around. Once you arrive in Glyfada, you will be glad that you had the time to plan out your trip properly.
