Euro exchange rate

This is probably a very silly question but not having traveled within the Euro zone for some years, I have to ask the question. Does the exchange rate of the Euro in the UK differ to the exchange rate in Crete ? When we have traveled previously we have exchanged our currency when we have reached our destination and got a better rate but I’m not sure if it’s the same for the Euro.

From my experiences over the past few years there is very little difference overall whether purchased at home or in resort via hole in the wall machines. If doing it in Crete be careful which machines you use as some of them have outrageous charges. Always use machines associated with banks.

I can't remember the name of the one's to avoid but I'm sure somebody will be along soon with the name.

For Crete generally speaking you get a better exchange rate in the UK than you do when you get there.

You get less for cash, a better rate from the ATM if you follow this, but also depends on what your card issuer charges, Greek bank ATMs don’t charge,
