Earlier this year, Greece and Mediterranean Travel Centre (GMTC) launched the #WhyIDontDIYTravel campaign alongside a competition to highlight the risks travellers face when they book holidays themselves. The campaign has not only brought to light some of the horror stories, but it has also celebrated the type of incredible trips that can be achieved when booked through an ATAS accredited travel agent.  The Instagram competition was a resounding success, with the overall winner scoring a holiday to Greece.  But GMTC still wants to raise awareness.

Tailored to Delight - Meet Alex Karakou

As Greece and Mediterranean Travel Centre’s Product Manager, Alex Karakou has been working with us for 5 years. Born in Congo, Alex speaks four languages including Greek, English, French and Swahili, but having lived in Greece he knows all the best secrets and local delights! One of Alex’s favourite destination apart from Greece is Egypt because of its steep history. He has recently returned from a trip to Turkey, Israel and Greece, and says the trip highlights for him included Cappadocia, The Dead Sea, and the Medieval Palace of Rhodes in Greece, as he is from Rhodes. Alex enjoys working at Greece and Mediterranean Travel Centre because of the passion that the team has about the destinations on offer. He’s most certainly a people person who loves being able to share his knowledge about the wonderful places he’s travelled to.
