Greece Currency Guide
Greece uses the Euro.
There are ATMs in all Greek cities and towns that have banks and, of course, in all tourist centres too. If you have a major debit card you should be able to use your card in any of the machines. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and check what international withdrawal fees might apply to your card.
Before you travel to Greece, it’s a good idea to convert some of your Australian Dollars to Euros to have with you when you arrive. You never know when you might want a lamb gyro from a street stand! Euros are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly.
If you like the security that a credit card offers while travelling without the risk of racking up debt, consider purchasing a prepaid cash travel money card. A Multi-currency Cash Passport™ allows you to load your money in the form of Euros and other currencies onto the card. Your money can then be accessed at various ATMs and used wherever MasterCard® is accepted. The Multi-currency Cash Passport card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
