Financial crisis looming in Greece that could affect travellers

With the possible escalation of the conflict between the Greek government and its European lenders, Greek citizens have been withdrawing deposits from Greek banks. Reports indicate that the European Central Bank may end emergency lending to Greece as early as today. This action could force an emergency bank holiday in Greece tomorrow.

Advice For Travellers

To stem the flow of cash from Greek banks, limits may be imposed on the amount of money an individual can withdraw from the bank. One possible impact may be that cash machines could run out of money.

Monitor the situation closely and ensure you have adequate cash on hand and alternative methods for payment.
