ATM Fees ...

Charges are back ...

Seems there is now an ATM fee, when you withdraw money from a foreign bank account ...

There’s a fee of between €2 & €3 per transaction. National Bank of Greece was first to charge, a couple of weeks ago, followed by Piraeus bank & Eurobank about a week later. So far Alpha bank are not charging, but expect they will follow soon.

If you are going to withdraw funds, take out a large amount, at least you will benefit from the market rate ...

Later Update: 11th August

Greek banks are charging Greek and foreign holders of debit and credit cards issued abroad 2-3 euros every time they withdraw cash from an ATM.

The new commission fee came into effect at the end of July and was immediately noticed by both tourists and Greeks who have accounts at banks outside Greece.

The banks notify the card holder about the new charge with a message that appears when the person uses a cash machine.

The redesign of the banks’ pricing policy is linked to their efforts to expand their revenue sources at a time when revenues from loan interest are low.

When will the numpties calm down (Late September or the first major thunderstorm?) and take a look at the photos of Benidorm, and compare them to those of Skiathos. Anyone with half a brain cell, will see there is no comparison between the two ...

Anyone who still cant see the difference, I recommend a trip to Specsavers who also sponsor very good test matches ...

Top question of the day, from someone on the Old Port. Where do I get the boat to Tsougria? Before the days of the internet you used to read the blackboards, or listen to the boatmen saying where they were going.

How times change, No WiFi - No day trip ...

Girl in the coffee shop, said to me yesterday ' I am rocking your South of France vibe' Guess that's a positive ...
