F.A.Q.

1)      Who is Windmills Travel and what can they do for me?

Windmills Travel is Greek owned, inbound travel agency in business since 1979, specializing in the Cycladic market and offering full travel services and accommodations throughout Greece.  Anything you want, anywhere in Greece.

2)      How do I book my vacation with you?

We accept Visa and Master Card or you can transfer through IBAN or SWIFT.

3)      When is the best time to visit Greece?

Spring and fall are the best months where tourism is not at its peak and pricing is at reasonable levels.  The weather will be warm enough for swimming and sunbathing without the crowds.  If you plan to travel in July or August, book well in advance.

4)      Can I cancel my reservation once it is confirmed?

Yes, before accepting payment for a reservation we will offer our cancellation and amendment policy.  Travel insurance is always a good idea.

5)      Can I survive in Greece without speaking Greek? 

Yes, all signs are in English and Greek, most people in Athens and on the islands speak English or some English.  Practice a few words in Greek before you leave, they will be greatly appreciated.

6)      Do I need a visa to enter Greece?

Americans, Canadians, Europeans and Australians do not.  If you are coming from another country, please contact us or your local Greek Embassy to find out if a visa is necessary.

7)      Can I use my electronic devices in Greece?

If your appliance accepts 200v, you may only need a Greek chord or an adapter at the end of the plug.  If not, you will need to buy an electrical transformer travel kit to take with you.  These are available online and in appliance stores.

8)      What if I have a problem during my trip?

Call us immediately! By booking your trip for you, we are taking responsibility for everything.  Call us and we will get to work on fixing whatever it is promptly and tell you what your next steps are.  We will certainly speak to someone on your behalf or get you comfortable in an uncomfortable situation.  This is why you are booking with a travel agent, it’s personal!.

9)      Why should I book transfers with you?

With an arranged transfer by Windmills Travel you have an English speaking driver, a pickup waiting for you, appointed departure times and no one else along for the ride.  You can try hailing a taxi and there are some hotels offer cheap or free transfers from the airports and ports to their guests.  Taxis are known to refuse service and take people for a “ride.”  Hotel shuttles are done with a bus and several other people, some will even have stops at their sister hotels along the way.  We offer a private car and a hassle free trip from A to B with friendly Private English speaking drivers.

10)  What currency should I use in Greece?

In Greece we accept your credit and debit cards at most places and the local currency is the Euro.  Do ask if an establishment accepts credit cards before sitting down to eat. Cash can be withdrawn from your cards at the many bank machines throughout Greece and banks are open from 8am till 2 pm, Monday – Friday.  Some may have later hours one day per week.
