Greece is generally cheap, particularly if you are planning on staying in the lesser known areas of the country. Cheap accommodation could go as low as £30, and dining and wining is even cheaper in some spots. Gyros still remain a widely consumed culinary delight by many tourists, and it is still quite cheap.
Travelling and transportation is also quite affordable, remaining as low as £20 to £30 for a day trip. This depends on where you are travelling but they are generally valid prices still. Trains in Athens could go as low as £1, while an average price for a bus is about £5 or so.

2. Avoid busy tourist places like Mykonos, which are overly expensive.
3. Book everything early, from flights to ferries. 4. Do not stick to guided tours but explore more. Getting off the beaten path will prove to be fruitful and save you a bit of money.
