ATM in Elounda

We are staying at the Elounda Village Hotel for a week from 19th October and I was wondering where the nearest ATM is. Of course we shall have some euros with us but not enough to last the week.

There are ATM's in the square but beware, unless you have advised your bank that you are going on holiday they will often not let you get any money out as they assume the card has been stolen! We had this problem in August as did many others who were queueing.We had to get cash out on a credit card (which actually worked out cheaper than the charges of the banks)There is a Bureau de Change in the square which is very good, they do not charge commission and the rate was excellent. Hope this helps.

Hi there

Just be aware though that unless you repay your CC back in full each month, withdrawing cash on it is easily the most expensive way to obtain funds, with the CC companies often charging well over 20% APR for the privilege.

Just ring your regular bank a week or two before departure to tell them where you will be travelling to to alleviate any refusal at local ATM's for cash withdrawals.

Thank you for your advice. We have a Nationwide debit card which we have used problem-free in Venice and Sardinia this year. Hopefully it will be the same in Elounda.
