Greek financial crisis impacts travellers - update

Greek banks will not open on Monday, and are not expected to reopen until after the national referendum on July 5. It is expected that during this period, withdrawals will be limited to a maximum of 60 euros per bank per day or per account per day, and that cash cannot be moved abroad, except for necessary pre-approved commercial transactions.

Advice For Travellers

The Greek government issued a statement for “anyone visiting or about to visit Greece” that the capital control measures “do not apply to those wishing to make transactions and withdrawals with a credit card issued in their home country.”

However, travellers are reporting that automated-teller machines are running out of cash and that many businesses are no longer accepting credit cards.
