Kef fire risk 16/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8954 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0292 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1168 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9716 €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.

Non-PDO halloumi going cheap

Many supermarket chains and stores in Cyprus that sell halloumi are offering hefty discounts on individual or bulk sales of the cheese. The price cuts, of course, only concern those products that do not fall fulfill PDO specifications and are not labeled accordingly.

Supermarkets are frantically trying to get rid of their stock so as to comply with the September 19 deadline when only PDO-produced halloumi can be sold in stores.
