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. On Zante you will find National Bank of Greece ATMs at the Express supermarkets in Tsilivi and Laganas as well as in Zante Town.

Checkout the rooftop pool on the Strada Marina Hotel or marvel at the complexity of the back roads in town. No wonder everybody gets lost when they venture in there. Look harder and you can even see the Kalamaki Water Park in the distance.

Zante Walkabout 2012
Several new routes have be added giving coverage of all the resorts & over 200 km of roads connecting them together.

Quick view of the new routes:

Jet2 from Manchester & Leeds
Jet2 will be flying to Zante from Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports in 2013. Prices currently look to be about the same as Thomas Cook & Thomsons, but increased competition may lead to reduced prices as it has done at Gatwick. Jet2 also offer better luggage allowances as standard.

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.

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.

Shipwreck Viewing Platform
Take a virtual tour of the slightly scary shipwreck viewing platform. Nobody is too sure who built it or if it's totally safe, but you do get a good view! The best time to visit is either before 11am or later in the afternoon so you avoid the crowds on the coach trips. You wouldn't want to be on that platform at the same time as a dozen other people would you?
