Zakynthos is very much a summer destination, with temperatures starting to climb around Easter time. May and June are pleasantly warm, and by July you can expect the mercury to nudge 30 degrees. Being an island, you can often expect a sea breeze or two - a welcome break from the midsummer heat.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
