German, British and Italian visitors are proving the most reliable source of revenue for the Greek tourism industry, as evidenced by the hotel.gr’s reservation data, which was processed by Sete Intelligence of the Association of Greek Tourist Enterprises.

According to the most recent Sete Intelligence’s statistical bulletin in March 2018, the main booking market for Greece was Germany, remaining in the same position as in March 2017. The UK market is second, with Italy coming in third, followed by the US and France.
Britain, Germany, and Italy are constantly in the top 3 spots since the beginning of 2017, with the exception of October 2017, when Italy fell to 4th place.

Germans
Athens was the top choice for Germans for March 2018, followed by Thessaloniki and Fira. The top 3 destinations for German tourists remains exactly the same as March 2017 in that exact order of preference. There are three destinations preferred by Germans in Crete: Georgioupoli, Rethymnon, and Chania in sixth place.
