Kef fire risk 19/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.9002 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0253 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1109 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9753 €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.

Power supply uncertainty

Electricity supply should not be taken for granted for everyone this winter, at least from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. between November and March.

The same will most likely apply during some morning hours and this is because the country, based on the binding regulation of the European Commission, will have to proceed with a mandatory reduction of electricity demand by 5% during peak hours.
