Ever wondered why there are so many ATMs on Zante 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.
On Zante you will find National Bank of Greece ATMs at the Express supermarkets in Tsilivi and Laganas as well as in Zante Town.
|Cost of €100||Rate 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|

4.1A big sandy beach able to accommodate everyone from the neighbouring resort and more. Lots of tourist facilities on hand.
4.0Probably the best place to actually see a turtle. Just wade about in the shallow water and if they are about you will soon spot one.
|It's as busy as you'd expect from a Club 18-30 resort, but keep walking and you'll find a long stretch of beach where development has been prevented by the Marine Park.|
4.2A big sandy beach which rarely gets crowded despite new tourist developments nearby. Plenty of tourist facilities nearby without feeling overly commercialised.
|Often criticised, mainly because in many places there is no beach! At least the water is shallow with a sandy bottom making it good for bathing.|
4.9Levante speedboat excursion is a half day, high speed cruise visiting the most famous tourist attractions on Zakynthos. The boat departs daily from Tsilivi harbour at 8:30 am and carries up to 24 passengers.
