Currency exchange

Hi - is it easy to exchange money in Kefalos? And also will I get a better rate in Kefalos rather than in the UK?

The official exchange rate is the same worldwide. You will get variations from place to place depending on charges, hidden or otherwise. The rate getting your cash from an atm is always better, especially if you use a Nationwide Flex Account debit card as they have no charges.

Here's the link to a previous thread about atms on the island,

Hi there

Your best bet is to use the local ATMs rather than take sterling or travellers cheques. Pay your holiday cash into your regular bank account and withdraw what you need as and when you need it. This usually gets you a slightly better rate as well.

Paul you can exchange money at Kefalos Tours which is in centre of resort near Kamari Bay Hotel, several other placves too, a couple of the car rental places change money too........or there is a bank up in the village above the resort. The bank also has ATM outside and there is another ATM on the main road just near to Manos Fast Food. Hope that helps
