Today’s bank rates:

1 €UR = $ 1.1246 USD   $1 USD = 0.8975 €UR
1 €UR = $ 1.7086 AUD   $1 AUD = 0.5852 €UR
   
Based on National Bank of Greece exchange rates.   
Other banks likely to offer rates 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.

Only 1 in 5 has got the IRIS system

Just 260,000 freelancers and self-employed people have so far registered in the system of accepting payments through their account, a service supported by IRIS of DIAS Interbanking Systems SA. The number of registered freelancers falls well short of the total number active in Greece – 1.3 million – and the deadline expires at the end of March.
