🇬🇷 Monzo in Greece [Discussion]

Santorini :roll_eyes:

I have just returned from Thessaloniki. I have used the contactless service successfully at a coffee shop (Mikel), super market (AB) and also the “POS insert card & pin” service at Intersport to buy a pair of shoes. It worked like a charm. The exchange rate was very good as well. I have not tried inserting the card into an ATM to withdraw money as I am quite worried about that, due to previous issues reported by other users in the past. Have you guys used the ATM withdraw service recently? If yes, may I ask under which Greek banks?

Hi! I’m heading to Halkidiki this week just wondering if anyone has any experience using monzo there??
Thanks!

@tia_patel
You will be fine!
All places take card in Greece now.

Hey everyone, has anyone been to Mykonos? I wonderful if that would be ok to use Monzo? It’s seems Santorini can be a bit funny, so worry Mykonos might be the same?

Went there a few months back and it was fine, accepted in 9/10 places no problem. Was expensive though! It’s a very lovely place. Enjoy :slight_smile:

used my Monzo for a week in Mykonos last week - no issues at all, accepted everywhere (although with chip and pin rather than contactless)

Thank you so much for both of your replies that’s really helpful! :grinning:

Hi there,I’m currently in Faliraki in Rhodes and I have tried 3 atm’s and they all charge money for lifting your cash.I used a Eurobank on Sunday and after declining the DCC rate of 1.03
I was charged €4 :open_mouth:
Does anyone know who doesn’t charge or who charges the least?
I know Alphabank charges €2.50.

I couldn’t find any free to use ATMs over the summer in Santorini.
I have read somewhere that all overseas cards have to have a fee applied to ATM withdrawals in Greece.
