Would I be wrong in guessing that at some time in your life, you’ve dreamed of spending a few glorious weeks in Greece with your family? An idyllic Greek Island vacation. A trip to Greece.

Have you spent hours (dare I say weeks) drooling at pictures on the internet of golden sand beaches and flat-roofed white houses that can only be found on an island in Greece somewhere in the middle of the Aegean Sea?

You and me both.

I can’t tell you how many times I have typed into Google ‘What does a Greece vacation cost’, only to be forced towards twenty million ads that never give me a straightforward answer.

Taking a Trip To Greece 


As it happens, I am currently on vacation in Greece. Staying in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
In the fishing village of Naoussa in Paros, Greece.

I’m here with my husband and two young adult kids (notice how I called them ‘young adults”? I have to do that. It’s the law in our house. They don’t talk to me for a week if they find out I’ve been calling them kids on the interweb).  

And as I’ve been paying for things, I’ve been clocking the price so that I can report back to you with prices. You are very welcome (or ‘Parakaló’), as you will say when you learn a few basic Greek phrases!

Paros in Greece…beautiful, isn’t it? But at what cost? Just how much is this going to set you back?



Why not listen to our Travel podcast while you read?!

This week on the podcast (brought to you from the Greek Island of Paros), Brian and I are here to share (brutally honestly) what our Greece vacation has been like and how much it has cost us.




How We Came to be Travelling Greece for a Month.


Brian (my husband) and I have left our life in New Zealand and are currently travelling around Europe for three months.

We bought a classic Peugeot 205, and we have driven it from England to Greece (where we have been for the last three weeks).

This was all planned by Brian in Lockdown. While I was busy bleaching the cups. 

In this podcast episode, we share with you the exact cost of things in Greece, including what a nice jug of wine will set you back.

I always remember the important things.


Souvlaki. A famous food in Greece. But how much does it cost?

The Greece Travel Podcast

If you are new around here, you might now know that my husband and I host a weekly travel podcast. (Well. I say, host. I talk, he interrupts, I pretend to listen, then I talk some more…).

This podcast is called ‘It’s a Drama’  it is in the top 2% of all podcasts worldwide (WOO HOO!!) and is listened to by thousands of travellers each week.

And this week on the podcast (brought to you from the Greek Island of Paros), Brian and I are here to share (brutally honestly) what our Greece vacation has been like.

We are here. For you. Your very own knights in Greek togas.

Able and willing to share with you the exact cost of what a trip to Greece will set you back.




In This Week’s Show, Brian and I Discuss The Cost of our Greece Trip. Including:

  • Cost of accommodation in Paros, Greece
  • Cost of a nice breakfast
  • Cost of a budget breakfast
  • Cost of wine in Greece
  • Cost of mobile data and other technical stuff
  • Cost of dinner for two
  • Cost of public transport



Greek Trip Cost, Things to Note:

All prices are in Euros. At the time of writing this post 1 Euro = $1.05. 1.66 NZD.  .86 pence

Flights from New Zealand to Greece cost us  $1900 NZD per person return. This was with Emirates.

The prices mentioned in the podcast are what we found throughout the month of June 2023. June is shoulder season in Greece. Obviously, allow higher prices for accommodation if you are visiting in the peak season (July/Aug).


A cooked breakfast in Greece.. What makes the perfect Greek Island vacation?

Here is Brian’s breakfast that he makes us (and that he was moaning about on the podcast!) Can you now see why I insist he makes it for us??!


Looking For a Fabulous Travel Book To Take on Your Trip To Greece? I have just published one!!


Four years ago, my husband (Brian) and I took our two teenagers around the world for a year. They were 16 and 13 at the time. I was 48. I think it was my way of indulging in a midlife crisis. Just without the Ferrari.

We went to thirty-six countries in total, including India, Italy, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, and Montenegro. Our budget was $100 a day. $100 a day. For the four of us. I know, crazy. 

I loved it. At last, I could waltz around India pretending that I was Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love, but the kids? That was a different story…And that is what the book is about.

Travelling the world with too many hormones, not enough money and children who would rather look at Snapchat than the Eiffel Tower!

If you are looking for a fabulous book to read about travel, family and being a mother, then here it is.

Armed with humour, optimism, & three pairs of comfy high-waisted travel knickers, this feel-good hilarious pee-your-pants, laugh-out-loud memoir will have you changing your life and racing to book your next adventure.

Prepare to laugh, cry & curl your toes while learning that despite parenting fails, family, love, travel and laughter always triumph!
