Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.   
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g. the
Post Office.   
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".    
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.   
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Another tragedy when a Argostoli local collapsed and died on the street. Ambulance took 25 minutes to arrive due to shortage of abulances and staff.
