Some time ago, I posted a thread asking about different party destinations in Europe.

Now, we have probably decided to go to Ios, but there are a few questions left.

Firstly, is July a good time to go? We can't go in August or June anyway, but I'd still like to know beforehand ;)

Secondly, how much money p.P. for 7 or 10 days (or how much money per person - per day), meaning how expensive are, most importantly, clubs (entrance fee and drinks), also restaurants, bars, food and alcoholic beverages in supermarkets, etc.

Secondly-bis, is there such a thing as a disco-package or similar (i.e. cards with special prices for disco entrances and drinks, etc.). We had something like that in Lloret de Mar, with free entrance into most clubs without queuing even, and 50% on all local drinks in many clubs. That was awesome, and the package only cost 30€.

Thirdly, if anyone has gone there from either Luxembourg or Western Germany or Eastern France/Belgium or even the Netherlands, can you recommend a company to fly with?

Fourthly, can you recommend a good (and cheap) hotel?

Fifthly, are all night clubs next to each other (like in Lloret) or is it impossible (difficult) to get to some of the night clubs if you choose to stay on one part of the island and not on the other?

I have another question: where exactly is that big town/city where all the clubs are located? Seems kind of important when looking for a hotel.

Thanks in advance.

Ios will be crazy in July - Packed with both Australians and Italians - which has its ups and downs regarding the party scene

Drinks weren't too bad in Ios, with a lot of competition amongst bars there are a lot of specials going on (3E a drink) and very few covers. I didn't eat out much but I know there is a decent Thai restaurant and you can certainly get alcohol at the market. Your cost total will all depend on what you do during the day. You can sit on the beach for free or do water sports, etc that will cost you.

No disco packages that I am aware of

Far out beach club is the cheapest but you'll be staying in a pup-tent - crazy party though

Nearly everywhere you want to go in the island is walkable - particularly between clubs and most bars are located right in the same strip
