Beware: Monzo & currency rate Milos/Sifnos

Just returned from Milos & Sifnos and found using pre-loaded Monzo card which offers great currency rates, that local vendors were setting their credit card readers to take payment in GBP at pernicious exchange rate. Only discovered after seeing credit card slip and thereafter insisted on paying in Euros, but still managed to be done another 5 times

I assume being done another 5 times was before you realised to ask for Euro's
