Halkidiki going the way of Mykonos?

The Halkidiki peninsula in northern Greece has long been a tourist hotspot. However, businesses there now seem to be adopting the kind of pricing policies seen on islands such as Mykonos and Santorini. Would-be beachgoers have to book sun beds days ahead and prices in general are skyrocketing.

Cross-checking reveals extensive evasion

The interconnection of cash registers with card terminals (POS) may have been delayed and not be expected until the first months of 2024, but this does not mean that the tax administration is sitting idly by. Extensive cross-checking is under way, as well as spot checks at businesses to verify that the data generated by the POS are identical to the receipts issued by the cash registers.

European tourists seek to avoid overcrowding

Europeans are increasingly choosing to travel to destinations or periods of the year with less crowds, as they seek better services, new experiences and lower prices.

As a result, July and August are apparently showing fewer projected arrivals compared to last year in popular destinations in Greece, such as Mykonos and Santorini.
