Greek Islands, Greece Travel Insurance
>>Choose from 4 levels of great value Travel Insurance: Greece
With the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the glorious Greek Islands right at the back door, and the shorelines of Turkey, Italy, Egypt and half a dozen other countries just a cruise away, it's hardly surprising the number and variety of cruises you can choose from.
Best weather conditions for cruising are invariably in summer, though even then gusty winds can seriously ruffle the fun. Though cruising the Mediterranean and the islands have the reputation of being the most perfect holiday, weather can cause havoc at times so travel insurance for Greece including cancellation fees and lost deposits covering you for that expensive Greek cruise could be one of your best investments.
Head inland and you've got two thousand plus years of history to wow your mind, or if you're out for something different look into one of the volunteer/environmental groups or tours. Invariably you'll have to pay for the pleasure of working and making a difference in what is a totally beautiful environment, and the accommodation might be a bit rough, but the memories will be lasting.
Some organisations do provide emergency medical travel insurance options while you are with the group, but nothing else and only for that limited time so you would need your own more extensive cover particularly if you're heading on.
iTek high-value Platinum policy includes delayed luggage and travel delay, lost credit cards, documents, traveller's cheques, cash, personal effects and luggage, alterative travel arrangements and trip resumption plus unlimited cancellation and lost deposit cover in your travel insurance. Backpackers would benefit from our low-cost Bronze policy which incorporates the bottom-line of unlimited emergency and evacuation cover with personal liability, repatriation, dental and emergency cash in hospital and expenses - naturally these are included in all policy levels.
Australian embassies around the world handle over 20,000 incidents every year, with around 100 requiring assistance with evacuation. An amazing number don't have travel insurance and have to re-pay the costs.
It's really not all that expensive to take out travel insurance. Compare with other companies and also between purchasing through your travel agent and with iTrek direct. You'll find an incredible difference in the price, and very likely in the content as well.

>> Maximising Airport Time
- If you need to kill a couple of hours at Singapore's Changi Airport you've got a ton of options: PC terminals and TV zones (for free), showers, oxygen therapy and gym plus the swimming pool at the Terminal 1 Hotel (all for a fee), and great shopping.
- If you need to spend a bit of waiting time at the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Greece, you've got a great option just a short ride away. The expansive, eco-friendly Attika Zoological Park has the 3rd largest bird collection in the world and is a great way to fill in day-light downtime.
