Aito tour operators are adjusting their programmes where possible as they await the outcome of this weekend’s elections in Greece.
Aito chairman Derek Moore, speaking just before the start of the second joint Aito operators and agents conference in Funchal, Madeira, said:
“Multi-destination tour operators can adjust easily and cut back on their Greek programmes and they will be doing that and moving the advertising spend accordingly.
“The ones that have the problem are the single-destination operators or those that rely heavily on Greece.”
Sunvil Holidays recently admitted its sales to Greece were already 10% down because of uncertainty surrounding the country’s future.
Moore admitted members’ sales were being affected by nervousness among holidaymakers about Greece’s potential exit from the euro.
He said it was a sensible precaution for holidaymakers to take extra euros, but added: “I think the right advice is to still go to Greece but a lot of people will not want to go until it is stable.”
