One new case of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Kef fire risk 21/10/21: Low

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1489
1 USD = € 0.8353

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.


Ten day weather forecast for Kefalonia:
This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.

Eurocontrol Says Greece, Europe Air Traffic Rebound Possible by 2023

Aviation experts Eurocontrol are forecasting that airline traffic to Greece may likely return to pre-pandemic 2019 levels in 2023 given Covid-19 is brought under control.

According to the baseline scenario presented in the October report of the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol), Greece is moving up in terms of scheduled flights with all the more airlines either adding seats or reintroducing flights to Greek destinations in 2022.

At this pace, Greece could even outdo 2019 levels by 2024.

Over-50s can now book a Covid booster without NHS invitation

Over-50s can now book a Covid booster – even if they have not received an NHS invite – within a week of becoming eligible for the third jab, the Health Secretary confirmed on Wednesday.

The change follows complaints that many old and vulnerable people were being turned away from clinics because they had not been sent an official invitation, even though it had been six months since their second dose.
