(Updated June 2017)

PREPARING FOR YOUR TRIP

As you prepare to embark on your upcoming Affordable World journey, please log on to your My Affordable account and click on your trip confirmation ID to review the most up to date trip details including hotel information, flight schedules, and ticket number(s). Please make sure you have all travel documents, passports, and necessary visas ready before you depart for your trip.

 

CHECKING IN AT THE AIRPORT

Be sure to bring your passport as you will need to present it when checking in at the airport.  Please be advised not all airlines assign seats in advance.  Some airlines assign seats at the airport during check-in.  We recommend all travellers arrive at the airport at least 3 hours prior to the flight departure time.  You will receive boarding passes at the airline counter when you check in for your flight. 

 

UPON ARRIVAL IN GREECE

Please go through Customs and Immigrations on your own.  After you pick up your luggage, exit the baggage claim area and look for the Affordable World representative holding an  Affordable World flag or sign.  Please wear your Affordable badge for easy identification.  Affordable World tour guides/airport assistants will wait for arriving tour members outside the airport baggage claim area for up to 90 minutes after the landing time of the tour member's flight before departing from the airport with transportation to the hotel. If for any reason a tour member does not meet the Affordable World representative within 90 minutes after the landing time of the tour member's flight, the tour member will be responsible for his or her own transportation from the airport to the hotel, along with all associated expenses. *Land only packages do not include airport transfers. Land only travellers – please arrange your own airport transfer to the hotel. If you have purchased an airport transfer service from us please be sure to provide all flight information to Affordable World prior to your trip departure date.*
