Crews working aboard Superyachts should make the most of bargains while cruising in Greece but should check the fine print of any travel insurance they buy before they go advises EssentialTravel.co.uk now part of Thomas Cook UK & Ireland.
The online travel insurance and travel extras provider, urges those sailing to Greece not to be put off travelling on the back of current news reports and recent uncertainty but does recommend extra vigilance.
The FCO advises that travellers should expect regular strikes - unsurprising perhaps given recent events. But given the advice there is absolutely no reason to avoid cruising in the area altogether.
For added security crew should purchase travel insurance before visiting Greece as they will only be covered against strike action if the policy is purchased before specific dates are announced.
For peace of mind check the fine print of your insurance to ensure that your policy covers third party insolvency, make sure you pay for things while there with your credit card so as to ensure that you are covered by Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act of 1974.
