Currency Exchange

Banks exchange all major currencies in cash, traveler's checks or Eurocheques; the commission is lower for cash. Post offices exchange cash but not travelers checks, and usually charge lower commissions than banks. Travel agencies and larger hotels change cash and traveler's checks but usually charge higher commissions than banks. Banknote exchange machines can be found in most tourist areas.

Post Office

The Greek post is called ELTA and you can find the main post offices of the Island in Fira, Emporio and Oia. Also, there are postal agencies in Pyrgos, Kamari and Perissa.

Post Boxes in Greece are yellow for normal post, usually with 2 slots for internal post (meaning inside Greece) and post for abroad. Red Post Boxes are rarer and they are used for urgent mail. Registered mail is always handled and given a receipt for at the Post Office.
