Kef fire risk 24/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8987 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0181 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1127 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9822 €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.

Ithaki coast guard in action again yesterday, this time towing the British flagged Southern Comfort yacht into Vathy after it lost control of its rudder off Atokos island. No injuries to either of the two occupants and no marine pollution observed, boat confined to port until re-certified as seaworthy.
