Greece Tourism Report Q2 2015
The finance ministers failed to come to an agreement in their previous meeting on February 11, and both sides did not even make a joint statement following the talks. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras maintains Greece wants to agree a 'bridging loan' to be put in place until August, while a new deal is agreed to replace the current troika bailout. The eurozone lenders say Greece must agree an extension of its current bailout deal, which expires on February 28. We do not think either side will come to an agreement in talks within this deadline. Instead, the best that can probably be hoped for is that both sides agree to a further set of meetings over the coming weeks. Both sides are taking an increasingly hard-line stance in the talks to boost their bargaining position, implying that progress towards any agreements will be sluggish at best. Nevertheless, we still think some form of compromise agreement will be reached, giving Greece and the troika more time for discussions over renegotiating the country's current bailout. Over the long term, we believe Greece will manage to extract some concessions from the troika lenders, with debt maturities on Greece's debts being extended as part of a renegotiated bailout package. This will do just enough...

We believe that over the short term, Greece's tourism industry will suffer from the political uncertainty, as potential risks of domestic unrest deter visitors. Moreover, the continued economic pressures and high unemployment will constrain domestic tourism and outbound tourist departures considerably. That said, should Greece exit the EU we would anticipate a surge in tourism numbers as the probable return to the drachma would make holidays in Greece attractively cheap. Finally, towards the end of 2015 and in the first part of 2016, we expect that the passing on of lower fuel prices to consumers by airlines will boost the wider tourism flows across Europe, and Greece could be a key beneficiary of this trend.
