The Wildfires in Rhodes

For many people, it was a huge disappointment. Their pleasant vacation to Rhodes didn't go as planned. Initially, the fire was brought under control by the firefighters, but on Saturday, July 22, the wind changed, and strong gusts of wind caused the wildfires to spread towards several hotels and other accommodations on the island. Many tourists had to flee and were forced to return home, including many Dutch tourists.

Greek Hospitality

Naturally, Greece wants to show its best side. The country is known for its hospitality, and today they have promised to compensate some of the affected tourists. The Greek government announced that anyone whose vacation was shortened due to the wildfires will receive a free one-week vacation in the upcoming spring or fall of 2024 on Rhodes.
