Where can I change my currency?
You can change your currency at specialized currency exhange offices, automated currency exchange machines or banks. Traveller cheques can be exchanged at banks, mostly Alphabank branches. Banks usually have better rates than exchange offices or automated exchange machines. ATMs and credit cards can also be used to exchange currency and they often provide better rates than other options.
Banks are open from 08:00 am to 14:30 pm, on all five work days. Most currency exchange offices operate similarly.
As stated, you can find the best rates either at banks or using ATMs and credit cards. In most cases, it is much more economical to exchange larger amounts than smaller.
ATMs can be found virtually everywhere. Do note that Greek ATMs do not use 5 number pin codes, if your pin code consists of 5 numbers, it is advisable to change it before coming to Greece. Many ATMs have withdrawal limits, but they vary from bank to bank.
Most ATMs charge 2 or 3 EUR fee for cashing out money. In some smaller villages or more remote locations, some ATMs can charge up to 4 EUR for withdrawing money.
What currency should I take with me?
Besides euros, the most popular currencies in Greece are the American dollar, UK pound, Japanese yen and the Australian dollar. For example, automated exchange machines will only accept these currencies plus most of European currencies. It is highly advisable to have euros but other currencies may suffice too.
Is it profitable to cash and change money at the airport?
Cashing or changing money at airports is usually the same as doing it anywhere else. Airports have no additional fees.
How to pay in hotels, shops, restaurants, taxis?
In many hotels, shops, restaurants and taxis you can pay using a credit card. Cash is good to have if you’re visiting more remote locations or smaller businesses. It is recommended to pay in smaller notes or coins because sometimes change is scarce.
It is not advisable to have notes larger than 50 EUR. There are two reasons for this: 1. change is often scarce and 2. people sometimes think that larger notes are counterfeit.
Tipping in Greece is very uncommon, both in restaurants and in taxis.
Greece is a large and topographically diverse country so there are many different climates.
For the most part, the weather follows a typical Mediterranean climate pattern with hot, dry summers and mild rainy winters.

The best seasons for visiting historic and archaeological sites and cities are spring and autumn.
Winter is cold in the north and in the mountainous regions, while it is windy and rainy in the south and on the islands, so it’s is not the best season to visit Greece.

Greece has one of the oldest cultures in the world, as there’s evidence that Ancient Greece already existed in 12th century BC. As Ancient Greece was a predecessor to the Western civilization, Greece is a very important country in regards to history. Many beautiful and thousand year old ruins litter the country, each with its own importance. Cities like Athens or Rhodes Town are historically important on their own. There are also many museums that house incredible artifacts and other objects. Besides the historical significance, Greece also has many beautiful landmarks.

Travel insurance is not compulsory in Greece, but it’s a good idea to have one. Insurance is issued for each tourist and eliminates the need to pay for medical expenses for emergency medical care. Many insurance also cover things like theft, loss of baggage or even emergency repatriation. Some things that are not covered by insurance in Greece include extreme sports and other high-risk activities, alcohol abuse, natural disasters and things like epidemics or terrorist attacks. There are several types of insurances like single-trip insurance, annual multi-trip insurance and backpacker insurance. On the lower end, insurance may cost from 30 to 100 USD, but it greatly varies. Moreover, if you need a visa to get into Greece, health insurance is mandatory.

Greece is a country with a relatively modern transport infrastructure. Train infrastructure is not very well developed, but buses and other transport is quite good. Roads themselves are safe and well maintained, but safety and increased caution is advised on Greek roads, due to high rate of car accidents in Greece. Reminder: always validate your ticket on the public transport.
Road traffic is on the right side.
Trains and railways in Greece are not as developed, but improvements are happening, albeit slowly. Despite this, trains are relatively modern and comfortable, though not very fast. Trains only cover the most major cities like Athens, Thessaloniki, Patra and others, so it’s not possible to get around the whole country solely by train. Thematical trains, trains that solely run on old railways for tourism reasons, are found in Greece and can be a fun experience. In Greece, there are two classes of trains: regular and intercity trains. Trains used to relatively cheap, but since the crisis ticket prices have increased. OSE is the company that runs all the trains in Greece, so if you need more information like schedules, visit their website: http://www.trainose.gr/en/
Buses in Greece are very well developed and are the most popular method of public transportation. They cover almost all of Greece, including some islands like Corfu and Zakynthos. Buses are very modern, comfortable and fast, thought in some more rural areas buses can be harder to find and they can be a bit older. There are also international bus routes to and from the neighbouring countries. Buses in Greece are run by a company called KTEL, with different branches for each region of Greece. Tickets can be bought from a driver, online or at the bus stations. For more information, go to this website www.ktelbus.com
Metro in Greece can only be found in Athens, though in 2023 Thessaloniki Metro is scheduled to open. This is a very fast way of getting around Athens and it’s also relatively cheap. Metro runs from 5 am to midnight on most days, but on weekends it can run until 2 am. At peak hours, metro trains run around every 5 minutes.
Tramways only run in the biggest Greek cities. They can be quite fast, as they have their own set of tracks, which allows them to reach their destination faster than buses or taxis. Tramways run from very early morning, around 5 or 6 am, till midnight or longer, but it depends on the city.
Taxis are easy to identify in Greece, as every taxi is equipped with a sign at the top and a meter. You can wave your hand to stop a taxi on a street or find one at their stands. Calling is also possible. It’s easy to find them in cities like Athens, but they can much rarer in more remote areas. As usual, from midnight to 5 am, taxi rates are increased. Taxi meters in all of Greece start from 1.20 EUR and rates vary from city to city. In some places you may be asked to pay a fixed amount of money for the ride.
You can easily rent a car at the biggest Greek cities or the most popular tourist destinations. Travelling by car in this country can be quite nice, as roads are well maintained, with exceptions in rural areas. On the other hand, compared to EU, Greece has a higher average of traffic incidents and casualties, so safety and caution is advised. Local rental companies are also cheaper than international ones, especially if you can negotiate. You need to be at least 21 to rent a car in Greece and have either an European driving license or the International Driving Permit.
Biking is not very popular in Greece. It is possible to rent a bike, but only in the biggest cities and bike paths are barely existant. Riding a bike on the road can be quite dangerous and not often advised. The best places to rent a bike are regions with a lot of flatness, like the plains of Thrace or the island of Kos. Rental prices start from at least 10 EUR per day.
There are many ferries operating in Greece, as they are required to reach the Greek islands. There are many ferry operators and most of the schedules only become known when the tourism season starts (usually spring or summer). Furthermore, schedules can often change due to weather. Ferries are much rarer in the winter due to ice and less tourists. Check here for more information https://www.greekferries.gr/
Domestic flights are also available in Greece but mostly from or to the islands. They are very useful in the winter, when there are less ferries operating.

Greece is known for its family oriented lifestly and this also applies to tourists. Your children will be accepted almost everywhere, but some places might not have the accommodations that are specifically designed for kids.
Spring and autumn are usually the best seasons to travel with children. The weather isn’t as hot as in the summer, but also not cold like in winter. Moreover, less people go to Greece during these seasons, meaning there are less crowds and you can find accommodations easier.
Many larger hotels have accommodations for children, including their own beds, travel cots and high chairs. Many hotels and public places also have playgrounds. Many restaurants are also very kid-friendly, as many Greek meals and drinks can easily be consumed by children. The staff are also very kind to children, as many people like being to kind to them. Shops are also child friendly, as they have many products that are designed for kids. Most taxis and public transportation won’t have children seats, but if you request a transfer, there is an option to have one. Rental cars have the same problem, as many companies may not offer this optins. On a plus side, young kids can get various discounts when riding public transport.
In major Greek cities, it’s very easy to find everything you need in terms of children’s products. From milk and baby formula to diapers, many supermarkets and stores have plenty of those products in stock. On the islands, these products can be harder to find though, but it heavily depends on your location and hotel.
Many hotels will provide various babysitting services plus there are many independent babysitting services.
