Occupancy rates in October are still high on Greek islands with a strong brand and in Athens, which is full of American tourists, as well as in winter destinations ahead of the October 28 long weekend, Tourism Minister Vasilis Kikilias said on the Skai television morning programme “Kalimera” on Sunday.

“October is an incredible month for Greek tourism,” he said, reporting occupancy rates as high as 90 or 95 pct in destinations such as Pilio, Mani, Vytina and Dimitsana, in the Zagorochoria villages of Epirus and almost 100 pct in the mountain villages above Nafpaktos.

At the same time, he added, well-known destinations such as Rhodes and Crete are still getting a lot of American and French visitors, bringing much-needed income for the average Greek family.

“This is a significant boost for the Greek economy….I am waiting until the end of the year. The 2022 budget forecasts revenues of 15 billion euros from tourism. Not only have we exceeded this but I assure you that we are significantly higher than the 18.2 billion euros of 2019,” Kikilias said.
