Greek Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura on Monday delivered a second televised message to tourists currently in Greece and to travelers that are planning to visit.
In her message, she invites visitors to contact the Tourism Ministry’s new special team which has been launched to address any possible problems related to tourism.
Minister Kountoura also informs that visitors can withdraw money from any ATM in the country and underlines that any reports stating problems with food, medicine or gas are “unfounded” and do not reflect the actual situation in Greece.
“I have been working closely with all tourism authorities and associations to ensure Greece continues to offer the highest quality of tourism services to its visitors.
We have daily updates here at the Ministry for Tourism, and we are all working 24/7 to provide solutions to any problems that may arise, with our first priority being to ensure that all visitors have a lovely holiday experience in Greece.
For these reasons we have organised, within the Ministry, a special Team to address all the possible problems relating to tourism.
You may contact us at the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
As we have already stated, visitors to Greece can withdraw money from any cash machine (ATM) or carry out any other type of transaction using their credit or debit cards issued abroad with no withdrawal limitation apart from the person’s personal limit.
In reference to certain media reports, stating problems like, food, medicine or gas are unfounded, as they are not reflecting the actual situation in Greece.
Once again, we would like to reassure everyone that visitors currently in Greece, as well as people planning to visit Greece, will not be affected by the latest developments and they can continue to enjoy their holidays without any problems in our beautiful country.
Welcome to Greece and thank you very much! “
