Large turnout with low expectations

Much is said and there is a buzz regarding the huge increase of Tourists arriving in Hellas in 2014.

In all possible ways and in all the media outlets, the competent Tourism Minister is mentioning the 21,500,000 Tourists that will spend their holidays in our country this year.

This number includes all sorts of nationalities.

Indeed, this triumphalism approaches the reality, especially in key destinations, where the number of charter flights is impressive.

Who are these Tourists, though?

What currency do they bring outside their holiday package?

Because this matter is highly important for the domestic services market in general.

At an average cost of ± 600 Euros for prepaid packages, paid at the source, that is, the Tour Operators located in their home country, a very small percentage of these sums reaches Hellas.
