Crete Banks: ATMs, Currency





Banks in Crete are prevalent in large Cretan towns, but may be sparce in rural areas. You can find banking machines ( atms ) that serve large international banks in the large towns. Some large interational banks have branches in Greece, such as Citibank and Eurobank. Greek banks and smaller Cretan banks can also be found in towns and cities. When traveling in Crete, as in most of the Greek islands, it is best to carry cash ( Euros ) and credit cards may be hard to use. The large towns in Crete will have shops and businesses that accept credit cards, but smaller merchants and markets will not accept credit cards. Currency is easily exchanged into euros at banks and currency exchange services which occur frequently in towns and cities especially in tourist areas.
