Greek tourism is apparently the beneficiary of fewer reservations by German tourists in the rival markets of Turkey and Egypt this season, according to a Bank of Greece (BoG) study this week and reports by German mass media.

A trend shows increased interest in summer holidays by German holidaymakers in Greece, despite an overall drop, by 6.2 percent, in tourist arrivals for the first trimester of the year: 1.621 million as opposed to 1.728 million in the corresponding period of 2015.

Nevertheless, arrivals by German nationals increased by 5.5 percent, to 118,000.
