Travel Services

Since Greece joined the euro area in 2002, the Bank of Greece conducts a monthly sample survey at the country’s major entry/exit points (‘Frontier Survey’), so as to collect the information necessary for estimating travel expenditure.

In fact, the ‘Frontier Survey’ comprises two independent surveys: the ‘Travel Receipts Survey’, aimed at estimating travel expenditure by non-residents in Greece; and the ‘Travel Payments Survey’, aimed at estimating travel expenditure by residents abroad. (For a detailed analysis of the ‘Frontier Survey’ methodology, see Bank of Greece, Economic Bulletin, 27, July 2006, p.71.)
