For those who recently returned from Rhodes, Greece

Hi everyone!

We are planning a trip to Rhodes, Greece for 10 days . We got the hotel and flight together and are now wondering how much money to take with us. We want to see the island and buy some inexpensive souvenirs. We did our research online but most of our info is 1 year or more old.

If someone could please help us with the following current information, we'd greatly appreciate it!

1.) How much is a typical lunch and dinner for two people? Ie: salad, main dish, and soft drink.

2.) What are the costs for various excursions? We are interested in seeing Lindos, Old Town, and the Medieval Knights.

3.) How much money does the ATM machine allow to withdraw at one time? Is the ATM machine ever empty?

4.) Is there a line to ATM machines?

5.) Is it a problem to exchange $100 and $50 bills for euros at banks?

I can answer one of these.

There are lots of ATM machines in Rhodes Town, mostly attached to bank buildings. So if you find one is busy, it's very easy to find another nearby that isn't. The only time you're likely to find one that has run out of cash is at public holidays when the people who refill them are on holiday too, and they never all run out.

Now in the smaller resorts there may be only one or two ATMs and things could be different.

As far as I know the machines themselves don't have withdrawal limits - the limits are set by your bank and encoded on the card - so only your bank could help you with this.

It's not a problem to exchange money at banks in any denomination, this is an island that welcomes tens of thousands of tourists at a time in high summer, but it can be time consuming as you may get caught up in lines with local people doing normal banking business.

It's difficult to advise on costs of excursions without knowing where your hotel is. Quite a large part of the cost will actually be transport from where you are to where you want to visit. If you're staying in Rhodes Town the Old Town, including the Street of the Knights, is simply there for you to explore,

Costs of admissions are given here:

Lunch starts at about €4 per person and goes up. It can go up a lot. Depends on what you want. But I think you can get a greek salad for €4 if not less. If you mention what sort of place and the type of meal some body will be able to give a fuller answer.

From Faliriki the tour company charges €15 for a return bus trip to Lindos. Per person. Can't imagine it's much more from Rhodes town.
