Four tips for holidaymakers going to Greece
While eurozone leaders have reached an agreement over a third Greek bailout, it may take a while for normality to return.
Holiday makers heading there are urged to take extra steps to protect themselves and their cash.
Here are four top tips from MoneySuperMarket:
- Take enough cash in euros to last the entire holiday. Banks have been closed and cash points running low for a while, so getting cash may still be a struggle.
- Check the small print on your travel insurance policy to make sure you are covered for the right amount of cash; understand the cash limit and excess you will need to pay on personal money. Some insurers may increase the current limits for a fee, or may have a change of policy for a short term period to reflect current climate.
- Those travelling independently by booking their own flights and accommodation should ensure they have a policy with cover for “end supplier failure”, for example, if your hotelier goes out of business.
- You should also look out for cover to protect yourself from any knock-on effects of possible strike action, in case things such as public transport, ferries and airports are affected.
