Kef fire risk 04/05/23: Low

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £0.9091 GBP
1 €UR = $1.1374 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1000 €UR
$1 USD = 0.8792 €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.

Just driven through the Amber Valley, eleven houses displaying Vote Green posters in their garden, 1 Labour, 0 Lib Dem, 0 Conservative. Further along another one for Labour. Not that it means voting will follow the same pattern.
