    This is the only advice that the foreign office has:

    There doesn't seem to be anything anywhere advising not to travel, or that holidays shoukld be a problem. You could ring your travel agent/company, but i'm guessing that as they still want your business, they'll tell you it's all fine!



    On GMTV the other morning, a travel expert was raving about all the cheap deals to Greece at the moment, so i'm guessing it must be fine for you to go. As long as you booked with ATOL protected people.

    Stay calm - generally riots occur in the main cities such as Athens, they tend to stay away from tourist areas. I think if anything the problems the Greeks are experiencing will play in your favour as things will be cheaper once you're out there etc. I work for a tour operator and we deal with stuff like this all the time, so I wouldn't worry overly.
  • Greece is fine.



    If there was a riot in London you wouldnt worry about going to Birmingham would you! This is no different dont worry. Ive been in London when a riot or protest was going on for G8 or something and you have no idea unless you were on that actual street.
