Beware of the ATMs

Ever wondered why there are so many ATMs in Greece these days? It's because the banks have discovered a trick of processing transactions in pounds instead of euros allowing them to use their own exchange rate. The table below shows the comparative cost of obtaining €100 from the most common ATMs you'll find in Greece. The National Bank of Greece was the only ATM that didn't use the trick and not surprisingly gave the best ATM rate.
 Cost of €100Rate per £
Tesco UK Online Rate£75.58€1.3231
National Bank of Greece£76.65€1.3046
Cash exchange in resort£78.13€1.2800
Piraeus Bank£79.99€1.2502
All the rates were checked within an hour on the same Sunday afternoon in October 2015 using a Nationwide debit card which charged a £2.47 foreign transaction fee for the National Bank of Greece withdrawl (included in the cost above). Transactions processed in pounds will not usually incur a UK charge unless you use a credit card.

Due to its lovely sandy beaches and proximity to both airport and town, Lassi is understandably popular. It lies just three kilometres to the south of Argostoli, the island capital, but has plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops of its own. Although a developing resort area, Lassi remains mainly low-key and particularly popular with families. Lassi has two superb beaches which get busy in season, but this does ensure that they have good facilities, including watersports, sun beds and a beach bar or two. more...
The south coast of Kefalonia boasts a string of sandy bays and beaches but only limited development to date (Skala is the only place approaching a 'resort' here). The beach stretches for about a kilometre and sunbeds are available for rent. Slightly inland, the original village is an attractive little place and boasts a very traditional square shaded by a pine trees, three good tavernas and a mini-market. Lourdas essentially offers a quiet relaxed holiday with an excellent beach, fine views, scenic surrounds and limited (mainly taverna-based) nightlife. more...
A Greek village which has turned resort. Its main attraction is its long expanse of fine shingle and sand, gently shelving into the sea, with isolated coves in the surrounding area. There is a small high street 100 yards from the beach with shops and tavernas and streets branching off. Along the coast, Potamaki Beach is a haven for the rare loggerhead turtles, and this has now been declared a conservation area. Night-time 'turtle watches' are organised for those who wish to observe the creatures without threatening their survival. more...

Pound hits a 4 year high
The pound is now back to its pre credit crunch value against the euro & analysts believe the trend will continue as the European Central bank comes under pressure to reduce its interest rates to US/UK levels. Good news for tourism so long as it doesn't become an excuse for price hikes.

Tony's flying visit to Kef
Tony Blair was a guest on the luxury yacht Ecstasea at the end of June. He arrived by private jet, was taken to the yacht moored off Myrtos Beach by helicopter, had a swim & some lunch, then went back home 4 hours later. I've had delays longer than that!

Greek Election Eases Fears
The new Greek government should bring stability for a few months at least, so now is as good a time as any to visit. There have been numerous reports of tour operators 'slashing prices' but from what we've heard it's more a case of 'slashing flights' keeping prices high. Booking direct is probably the best way to get a bargain holiday if you can find a cheap flight.
