|Gone but not Forgotten|
We've resurrected some of the more popular bars and restaurants that have disappeared over the years so you can revive memories of your old holidays on Zante.
|Jet2 from Manchester & Leeds|
Jet2 we'll be flying to Zante from Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports in 2013. Prices currently look to be about the same as Thomas Cook & Thomsons, but increased competition may lead to reduced prices as it has done at Gatwick. Jet2 also offer better luggage allowances as standard.
|Pound hits a 4 year high|
The pound is now back to its pre credit crunch value against the euro & analysts believe the trend will continue as the European Central bank comes under pressure to reduce its interest rates to US/UK levels. Good news for tourism so long as it doesn't become an excuse for price hikes.
|Greek Election Eases Fears|
The new Greek government should bring stability for a few months at least, so now is as good a time as any to visit. There have been numerous reports of tour operators 'slashing prices' but from what we've heard it's more a case of 'slashing flights' keeping prices high. Booking direct is probably the best way to get a bargain holiday if you can find a cheap flight.
|Airport Taxi Transfers|
You can now reserve an official Zante taxi so that it will be waiting for you on arrival at the airport. Taxis can carry up to 4 adults so it could be cheaper than booking transfers with your tour operator and you will arrive at your hotel much quicker. View Prices

|Shipwreck Viewing Platform|
Take a virtual tour of the slightly scary shipwreck viewing platform. Nobody is too sure who built it or if it's totally safe, but you do get a good view! The best time to visit is either before 11am or later in the afternoon so you avoid the crowds on the coach trips. You wouldn't want to be on that platform at the same time as a dozen other people would you?
