Greek Economic Situation

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 20 July 2015

Update 2
20th July 2015 at 09:00

The Greek Government announced on 18th July that banks will reopen today 20th July.

The Greek Government continues to limit the withdrawals using cards issued by Greek banks, but you can withdraw using your UK card up to the daily limit imposed by the Greek banking system (usually Euro600), or the daily limit imposed by your card issuer - whichever is the lower amount.

The system for paying with debit and credit cards for retail transactions continues to function. Western Union has suspended the transfer of money to and from Greece.

We do not anticipate that there will be any need for client’s to rebook their holidays for a different destination and at present no holidays have been disrupted however, as with all destination matters, we will continue to monitor the situation and update this page with any developments.

For up to date information, clients should continue to monitor our website or call your travel consultant.
