Exactly, I can't believe the amount of threads all asking the same question!
Thanks for that - I couldn't find any other comments about it so glad to hear that is the case.
Maybe 'panic,' was the wrong choice of word,crisis seems to fit the bill better.
TA should start a new section on the Greece forum exclusively for the endlessly repeated questions, must be at least 1000 threads about this now, all with the same questions, all with the same answers.
sorry to be so predictable - didnt think to look at the Greece Forum, this is the only Forum I have been on. Silence from me from now on the subject!
It's a fair question really.
My mum is there now - the only advice she was given was not to take too many euros and to instead take sterling - cash - just in case.
But as others have said - whilst there no one seems to be particularly worried about the situation.
I am here now, and I withdraw all the euros I want from ATMs. Dont understand what good Sterlings could do. They have to be changed into euros before spent in Greece. Even if Greece in the future should leave the euro, I guess euro will be very popular by Greek businisses as they can be used all over Europe.
She was given that advice in case Greece suddenly comes out of the Euro - in which case sterling would be a better option.
It's unlikely to happen overnight but it was reasonable advice (IMHO).
