The incentive program will start in the winter of 2018-2019.

    Have recently returned from a week in Kefalonia and was surprised that the holiday season isn’t longer given that the weather is still fab in October and the sea is still warm. Figured that it was more to do with flight availability so this sounds like a good move. Also places like Corfu town would easily attract people for short breaks all year round

    My husband and I would love to come to Kos in the winter months, we wanted to come for 1 month at Christmas this year but we need direct flights from Manchester U.K to Kos or at the very least direct flights from Manchester U.K to Athens. At the momemt we have to go via Germany or Amsterdam and this makes our journey too long. I have tried emailing Thomas Cook but have had no reply.
