Kef fire risk 07/08/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8676 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0486 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1526 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9537 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
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.

Down on the Piccolo Gyro, the coast road between Argostoli and Lassi, the biological works are falling foul with locals and visitors, reminiscent of the recent Poros pong.
