New travel advice for Greece

The government has updated its advice to tourists visiting Greece, reassuring them that they can continue to make withdrawals from cash machines up to their usual amount, despite the €60 daily maximum for Greeks, and that there are no restrictions on taking unspent euros out of Greece.

The new advice adds that "the system for paying with debit and credit cards for retail transactions continues to function".

However, travellers are still warned that banking services, including cash machines and credit card processing, could potentially become limited at short notice.

And the suggestion that visitors should take cash for emergencies is hardened.

The official word is now that it should "cover the duration of your stay" and those carrying cash are now encouraged to "take appropriate security precautions against theft".
