Top 10 Factors when relocating to Greece

Real Estate and Housing – The majority of homes in city centers are apartments. Larger houses and maisonettes are usually located in the suburban areas and are more expensive. Both flats and houses are usually rented with a 1 year minimum lease and are priced per square meter. The sale of property is priced the same way.

Furniture – Most Greek houses/flats are rented with no furniture. This means no lighting or white goods. The availability of fully furnished/semi-furnished homes (i.e. including lighting and white goods) has increased recently. However, these are rented at premium rates (particularly the fully furnished ones) and in the long term it is more economical to buy new furniture.

Built-in Wardrobes – Most Greek homes have built-in wardrobes as standard. This can be a problem if wardrobes are brought with the household goods. It’s best to check out the property beforehand to see what will fit.

Pets – Greeks are animal-lovers, but in many cases landlords do not allow pets. This has to be agreed with beforehand and signed into the lease. Even when purchasing an apartment you must check with the tenants association. Also, make sure your pets are wearing their ID tags at all times to avoid having them picked up by animal rescue services.

Temporary Accommodation – Fully furnished homes are available in Greece at premium rates and are usually available on a per month basis.

Schools – There are 17 international schools operating in Greece, mostly located in Athens and Thessaloniki. Most are English language based, although other foreign languages are also taught.

Transportation – There is a network of national buses, trains and ferries that serve the entire country. It is important to check schedules often as these are prone to sudden changes (especially depending on season). Inner-city transportation in Athens is provided by bus, trolley, tram and metro. Taxis are cheap and readily available.

Drivers’ Licenses – The EU driver’s license is valid in Greece. Non-EU licenses have a 6-month validity period. It is recommended upon arrival to immediately begin the process for the exchange of a Non-EU license for a Greek one or for the application for a full new license.

Food – Whether cooking, going out or ordering in, Greece has a variety of delicious foods to excite and satisfy the culinary enthusiasts. When traveling around Greece be sure to taste the wide variety of available dishes. Small tip: aim for where the locals eat.

Cultural differences – Greece can be found to have many cultural differences. There are various books and websites to guide you and it is wise to prepare yourself before coming. Although most Greeks speak English and are always willing to try to communicate, it would be a good idea to have a grasp of a few basic words and phrases to help get around at the beginning. Also, some of the foreign schools and embassies offer culture and language classes for adults.
