Your Destination

A maze of narrow cobbled streets lined with vibrant bougainvillaea, Rethymnon is a charming town on the north coast of Crete just perfect for a memorable beach holiday. With buildings dating back to the 16th century and a host of Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains to discover, it’s possible to immerse yourself in Crete’s ancient past here while taking advantage of a beautiful seafront promenade and spacious beach.

 

The town’s historic centre was largely built by the Venetians in the 16th century, with popular attractions including the Loggia, the Rimondi Fountain, and the Fortezza, a defensive citadel. Or, take the short drive out of town to see the Arkadi Monastery, which played an active role in the Cretan resistance against the Ottomans.

 

When you’ve reached your fill of historic attractions, wander the quaint streets and dive into some traditional Cretan food from an authentic Greek eatery. Make sure to try kataifi, a dessert made with crispy dough, walnuts, and syrup, and fresh seafood such as sardines or mussels.

Please note that the advice can change and consumers should continue to check it until they travel. 

Entry Requirements 

You must ensure you have a valid passport to travel on.

Health 

For information about important health advice and any vaccinations required please visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice and https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries. 

If vaccinations or other preventive measures are required, you will need to visit your health professional at least 8 weeks before your trip. In the event that you are referred to a medical facility for treatment, you should contact your insurance/medical assistance company immediately. 

Please note that passport, visa and health requirements can change. It is every traveller’s responsibility to ensure they have a valid passport, any required visas, and all the necessary vaccinations/health requirements as well as adequate insurance. 

Brexit

If you renewed a 10-year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport’s expiry date.

The UK Government has published a website tool to check the validity of your passport under these rules: https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/check-a-passport

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As of July 10th 2020, the UK Government has approved that travel to Greece is allowed without the need to quarantine upon return, thanks to an 'air-bridge' agreement. Greece has been listed as a 'green/amber' destination and is therefore considered safe enough to visit without requiring 14 days of self-isolation upon reentering the UK. Tourists choosing to book stopover flights may not be permitted to return without quarantining if the country they stop off in is not also listed as green/amber by the UK Government. Please note that this information is constantly being reviewed and may be subject to change.

In order for you to be able to travel safely, the Greek government has stepped up its health control measures when entering the country. All travellers are required to complete the "health protocol" form, https://travel.gov.gr/#/ at least 48 hours before their arrival. A QR code will be generated and must be presented upon departure. Travellers arriving by air from Bulgaria, Romania, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic must have produced a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival.

Please note that as of 4 am on September 3rd 2020, all travellers arriving in Scotland from Greece will have to quarantine for 14 days. Anyone arriving in Wales from the island of Zante will also be required to quarantine for a period of 14 days.

From 4 am on September 9th 2020, all travellers returning from Mykonos to the UK will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
