Greece: Zac the Travel Assistant

You probably thought that retaining a travel assistant was out of the Cheapo question. We thought so, too, until we met Athens-based Chris “Zac” Zachariou (tel: +30-210-935-4129, +30-6942-879-783, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Hiring Zac to help you plan your travel in Greece can save you money and time. The man works in mysterious, efficacious ways. Listen up.
Exhibit A. You can give Zac the least expensive rate you’ve been able to find on a rental car, hotel room, or other product or service in Greece. If he can find you something less expensive, he’ll obtain it for you and you’ll pay him half of what you’ve just saved.
Exhibit B. Tell Zac what you’d like to do and where you’d like to go in Greece and he’ll create an itinerary for you. He’ll book your hotel rooms and car rentals, tell you when various sites are open to the public, and even provide you with road maps. He’ll even meet you at the airport and see you off.
Exhibit C. If you’d like to splurge a bit, Zac can be hired as a personal tour guide. You will pay him a flat fee, cover his expenses (food, gas, etc.), and he will drive you safely and efficiently everywhere you want to go, providing you with history and humor along the way.
Having lived half his life in Greece and half in the U.S., Zac is fluent in both Greek and English. He can help you read menus, negotiate, avoid getting scammed, and, best of all, save you time and money.
In short: Highly recommended.
