Zante is so expensive now!
Not long got back from lovely Zante after 4 years of being away.
Still a nice place and the people are still as lovely as ever, but my god with the Euro isnt it expensive for us Brits to go there!
Nearly £2 for a mug of tea, average breakfast £4, main meal cheapest £7, on average up to £14! a pint of bitter nearly £4!
And the Greeks were wondereing why the place was so empty? How can the Greeks and others with the Euro, expect us without the Euro to be able to afford to come out there? Theres the credit crunch and the flights are going up too. Then when leaving Zante to make things worse after standing for 2 solid hours to check in at Zante airport we were charged for our cases being over weight!!! What a rip off!
I can see a lot of places closing down. Whats going on and is this trend going to continue?
I have a place in Bulgaria and the Euro hasnt gone in there yet, but what happens when it does?
Looks like we will all be spending our holidays in the near future in a caravan, in rainy, dont seem to have any sun anymore Britain! Oh please No!

Cost of living after Euro introduction has rocketed in Greece.
Everybody is complaining and the locals are in deep debt to the Banks.
As far as overweight charge I see it as an airline rule and not a rip off.
Having spend my holidays twice in Zante I will totally agree with you for the nice place and lovely people.
The only think I disliked was the Brits that could not hold their drink and behaved somehow a little worse than cave men.
