There is no cash machine here and no bank which is a pain, but most car rental places in the resort offering about 2% comission, not bad. We mostly used Ford car rental for money exchange.
I have never been to Kefalonia before,we are staying in Lourdas in July 2005,can anyone give any info on money exchange facilities? Is it best to bring travellers cheques or cash.Are there many places to change our money> Thanks
Lourdas doesn’t have a cash machine, which was a bit troublesome; luckily we’d hired a car so we were able to get more money out in Argostoli when the traveller’s cheques ran out. There is evidently a branch of a bank in a hotel somewhere, but they charge quite a lot of commission. I ended up changing a bit of money in the “Ford” Pefanis rent a car place that houses the Kosmar office. I was quite impressed by their rate, so much so that if I had needed to change anything else, I would have gone back there to do it.
