1 €UR = $ 1.6935 AUD   $1 AUD = 0.5904 €UR
   
Based on National Bank of Greece exchange rates.   
Other banks likely to offer rates 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.

Passport price to rise for second time in 14 months

The price of a UK passport will rise on Thursday, for the second time in just over 14 months.

The cost of applying online to get a new or renewed adult passport will go up from £82.50 to £88.50 from midnight.

This 7% rise follows a 9% rise in February 2023.
