WHEN TO GO
In the summer months, temperatures in Zante regularly soar above 30°C. That said, a northerly wind called the ‘meltemia’ wafts over the island in the afternoons, cooling things down. Things are fairly mild in April, May, September and October, when the mercury settles in the mid-20s.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Greek nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
