Expatriates and other visitors going to Greece in the coming months may be pleased to hear that the country is to cover all costs accrued by travellers as a result of industrial action or natural disasters during their trip.
The move follows recent economic unrest in the country after the government set out measures to rein in the financial deficit, which have resulted in a number of strikes and protests, along with the recent Icelandic ash cloud that prevented many from travelling by air.
Andrew Warner, spokesman for Expedia, said this announcement "is going to make the country even more appealing and it will be interesting to see if other destinations do follow suit".
He added that Expedia has seen "no drop in bookings to the country since its economic situation deteriorated" despite suggestions that the number of visits to Greece have dropped significantly.
Earlier this week, Greek culture and tourism minister Pavlos Geroulanos pledged: "We are guaranteeing to pay any extra room and board any visitor in Greece pays even if stuck here because of a volcano in Iceland."
