Before actually posting on the forums there are a few things that really help TA members  to help YOU

Help us to help you !

Please note that TripAdvisor (TA) has dedicated forums for most islands, town, areas etc. in Greece – post your question in the dedicated forum rather than in the general Greece forum (or – like many do – in the Athens forum). Most contributors follow the forum where they are staying and know the best, and don’t look up general forums like the Greece forum.

Also - if you are a newcomer to the forums it is not always wise to post a question added to another person’s thread. If you post a question to the OP (Original Poster) check when his\hers thread was active – there is no use in asking a question to a person who started the thread a long time ago (sometimes up to years). Most likely the OP doesn’t follow the thread anymore. For a personal question every person registered on TA has a personal page where a pm option is available.

Before actually posting on the forums these are the kind of important information to make us able to help you:

  • When are you going – and for how long ?
  • Are you looking for a package or do you go independently ?

  • How many are you ?

  • What is you travel style? Interests, sightseeing, activities, what kind of resort, quiet and peaceful or partying and nightlife, is the beach important?

  • Will you visit more than one island or resort ? If so for how many nights do you plan to stay on each island\in each resort ?

  • Will you hire a car or go by public transport ?

  • What is your budget (in € please) ? Don’t use expressions like “cheap”; “expensive” – they are highly individual and the meaning change from person to person

  • Please be specific in your requirements and questions. Asking for “best” or “must sees” and the like are also individual; specify YOUR personal requirements. Try to figure what issues that are important to YOU, and specify these in your questions for advice from us.


Please also note that contributors in these forums are all volunteers, and share information and offer advice based on their own personal experiences. They are not travel agents.
