Are there currently any working ATM machines on Tilos? It would be useful not to take all cash Thank you to anyone who lets us know..
There is an ATM at the bank in the main square in Livadia. We have used it on several occasions and never had any problems.
Yes there are working ATM machines
No, it’s the only bank & ATM at the moment. Pay for larger amounts by card & take some cash for small purchases.
Actually, there are very few Automatic Teller Machine machines anywhere.
according to news sites the bank has decided to withdraw its atms from tilos,kasos and lispsi,which were the only atms in these 3 islands..of course the islanders are outraged ..the government response was that there has to be a bill regulating this issue,following the practice of other countries in remote areas,that will solve the problem..as always, it is a matter of the government acting quickly enough,but judging from their track record i would just bring cash with me in these 3 islands until this gets sorted.
i have to add it really is incensitive for a bank to announce to the residents and visitors of 3 islands that their only money source will be removed in just a month or less...typical bank behaviour..i will make a thread in both lipsi and kasos forum to alert possible visitors.Edited: 11:16 am, August 16, 2018
well according to today's news report alpha bank says they will not take the 3 atms from the islands..so no problem for possible visitors...but the banks there will remain closed during the winter,which is still unacceptable for the locals..as a ''compensation'' alpha bank say they will replace the atms with more advanced ones that will be able to make more bank transactions (as if the old people in these islands are tech savvy). anyway ,here is today's report from a greek site
