According to the 2009 Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report published by the World Economic Forum, Greece holds the 24th overall position among 133 countries, 3rd place in the prioritization of travel & tourism subindex, 9th place in the number of World Heritage cultural sites, 5th place in tourism infrastructure and 1st place in the physician density subindex.
The number of tourism visits over the last decade has shown a steady increase. From 14.2 million international visitors in 2004, 17 million people visited Greece in 2008 and 22.5 millions in 2014, almost 4 times more than country’s population.
The above facts make taxi something more than a “golden business” especially in summer, where an individual taxi driver can earn more than 300euros per day!
