Budget Awareness

I may be visiting Athens,

I had made some Friends over the Couchsurf to like be my friend and make my trip enjoyable with some memories.

I read somewhere that in Athens if you go with friends you had newly made on sites and you like go to bar or something it may cost you like a 100 euro or so because these people bring all of their friends with them and put the whole bill on you.

Please make me aware about what is the trend. would it cost like a 100 Euro.

Hello Udit!

I have not quite understand if you plan to stay with someone through coach surfing or just meet for a drink or what... It is always wise to prefer someone who has build some history and gets positive feedback within the system.

You may want to have a look on this thread about couch surfing in general:

If you simply try to bond with locals, you may consider the Athens greeting program "This is My Athens" :

Hi again!

Most people are genuine, so I don't think this is a scam or anything, but it is always wise to take normal precautions. Starting with a coffee at a busy public place is a good idea, at least to check if you get along with those people, before been committed on a meeting on night hours.
