We are coming in a few days and we were wondering whether there is point in taking a Post Office Travel money card, do you know whether this is widely accepted here in kefalonia? the info on the card is as follows
'Your Travel Money Card works in the same way as your normal debit card. It can be used in retailers who accept MasterCard as well as at ATMs and online. The card is Chip & PIN enabled which means you will be asked to input your PIN when completing transactions'
has anyone used this here and is it worthwhile to get one or is it best to take just cash...?
Credit cards are accepted, but given the state of the economy that poor old Greece is in cash is MUCH preferred.
Credit and debit cards are really frowned upon by tavernas that will actually take them. Some shops too!
Take cash. It is preferred and will guarantee a smile from the recipient. The Sami Beach Hotel has a safe in the room and money and valuables can be kept there.
