Hi ann,

Lots of tourist shops on Cephalonia will change sterling to euros.

I see no reason why Skala will be any different to the rest of the island though I have never needed to change money there.

Check the rates. We have found that more upmarket shops (jewellers etc.) gave a better rate than some of the "beach towel and postcard" shops.

There are also two ATMs in the town.

Enjoy your time on the island.

We used to change our money at Panem travel on the high street.

Enjoy your holiday to Skala.

Opposite Veto's (a popular bar towards the bottom of Skala high street) is a currency exchange where you can change Sterling into Euro's.

I personally would take enough Euro's with me to Skala to exist on.

You may get a more favourable exchange rate in Skala than the UK, but if you cant exchange money and dont have any backup Euro's to survive off, you are courting unecessary trouble.

Skala has a few ATM machines, but if the village gets busy the ATM's can and do temporarily run out of cash. Nearest ATM's to Skala is in Poros 9 miles away. Buses to Poros are infrequent and return taxi fares

are far more than the cost of a good or bad exchange rate.
