Store discounts for US, Israeli, Russian and Turkish tourists


Many businesses in Greece will this year be offering tourists from the US, Russia, Israel and Turkey price discounts of at least 20 percent, in addition to the customary tax refund.

The initiative was announced this week by Deputy Foreign Minister Dimitris Mardas (left) and Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Enterprises president Vassilis Korkidis (2nd l). Businesses will take part in the initiative, which is aimed at promoting the country as a destination, on a voluntary basis and it will not apply during sales periods (May 4-10 and mid-July to end-August).

Tourist-customers will be asked to show their passports as proof of nationality.
