Zante Budgeting Advice
Where it all goes wrong

With thousands of people going bonkers on the Laganas Strip, it’s easy to get swept up in the hedonistic holiday atmosphere and blow all your money in the first couple of days.

Let your hair down too much and you may find yourself waking up in a bush or a medical centre with no passport, bank cards, iPhone, shoes, pants or dignity.

This is a VERY common occurrence in Zante so to avoid it happening to you listen carefully as we explain how it all goes wrong.

In the UK we have strict licensing laws, a single measure of alcohol in a bar is 25 cl.

In Zante things are VERY different. They don’t measure alcohol for a start, they just free pour it from the bottle, you get at least a triple. Also, some bars will try to get people in with cheap deals and then use poor quality alcohol.

All you can drink alcohol for 4 hours, only 5 euro! If you think you’re getting a deal there - you're wrong!

And to be honest we don’t have much sympathy for you.

Book events online

Don’t book an event for every night of your holiday. look for quality over quantity. A night out in Laganas is an event in itself, you want at least 3 nights out clubbing.

Aim to book 3 night time events and 2 daytime party’s.

The A-List package features the best events in Zante including the VVIP Yacht Party, The White Party & Nathan Dawe Tour - save over €100 on the resort price if you reserve online.

A sensible budget

Budget €30 euro a day for food. Or if you can’t afford that and would rather spend on booze and balloons then eat out once for lunch (€15) then grab snacks like pizza slices when you’re out which are €2.

Budget €50 euro for a night out which will get you smashed in Laganas. If you’re on a tight budget have some pre's on the balcony so you're well on your way before you hit the clubs.

A sensible budget
Use Cash

Only take out how much you can afford for the night. If you can afford €100 bring that. Once you have spent it then that’s it – this is the simplest budget solution.

Top Tip 1.

Change up £500 into euro and avoid expensive ATM and transaction fees.

Top Tip 2

Stuff an emergency €5 into your phone case so you can scoff a Gyros (Greek Kebab) on your stumble home.

Use Cash
Make the most of it!

Aim to lay out €100 – €150 euro on events. You’re on holiday, it will probably be your only visit to Zante so experience everything possible.

If you’re mental and don’t book with A-List make walk down The Strip and check prices of the events rather than buy at your hotel from a rep, the hotel price in 2023 was 275 Euro (£260) which will be a massive chunk of your spends and is the definition of daylight robbery.

Make the most of it!

Stay out of the midday sun!

Put €30 in each to a kitty is also a good idea for the first part of the evening so you can buy rounds of drinks.
