Due to increased demand Saga introduces four new all-inclusive holidays to the islands of Rhodes and Corfu
• Seven nights from £471

Many holidaymakers return to Greece year after year, loving the sunshine and culture in equal measure. Due to increasing demand, Saga is launching a selection of new Greek Island holidays in Rhodes and Corfu which offer exceptional value; all resorts are 4Q-rated, meals are included and there’s a free bar open for up to 12 hours a day.
In addition, a local representative meets guests on their first full day and provides them with an information pack, as well as offering tips on what to see and do in the region.
Christopher Yianni, Saga’s Holiday Creator for Greece says, “After some difficult times over recent years Greece is once again becoming a destination of choice for holidaymakers who want a great trip and outstanding value for money. In fact, we have seen such an increase in bookings and enquiries about Greece that we’ve created additional holidays to help meet this increased demand.”
Greece really does have something for everyone from Ultra All-inclusive beach holidays to unique island hopping tours and award winning hotels, these new hotels have been selected in order to really make the most of the destination and the culture.
