Travelling to Isreal and Greece this June 2014

My wife and I are traveling to Tel Aviv Israel on June 2nd then flying off to Athens Greece on June 12th. I would like to know if we should get our money exchanged before we leave Canada to New Israeli Shekel or the Euro?

Regards

Hi George

You posted this on the Egypt forum. You will get more responses on the Israel forum.

You will want to use local currency in Israel, the New Israeli Shekel. You will get a better rate in Israel for exchanging currency into Shekels.

You can take Shekels out of ATMs in Israel too. The charges for exchange and other fees to do this you can find out from your bank. It will depend on what type of account you have with them.

The TD bank has a great account that we used when we were on holiday last where we only paid the exchange rate and no other foreign withdrawal fees.

You can take out Euros when you get to Greece. Make sure your bank knows when you will be away or they will put a stop on your card.

Hopefully this helps you. Welcome to the forum!

Make sure your debit card works with a 4 digit PIN number.

There are some old posts on the Israel forum about debit cards and credit cards and there use in Israel on the Israel forum. Do a search and check it out.
