    Lisa. There are many posts that have answered your questions regarding money and atms. Scroll through in case you missed them. Every card is different you'll need to contact citi for their rates. Piraeus and Alpha Bank are the two biggest and atms everywhere just like any other major city around the world.

    @lissimmo we are using Piraeus & alpha bank just because they are more common .

    Maximum we can pull out every 24 hours is 640 euro which is 1000 Aus . We fiddled around to see if we could take out more but with our Anz travel card that was the max . Pretty easy with the money , no shortage at all !

    @lissimmo you should use the internet to read the information about your citibank account-it clearly tells you all of the charges and things you need to know. All banks are 'safe'??? Im not sure what you mean as unsafe? As i said before the atm's and banking is the same in all countries in the world including greece. If you can use eftpos, credit cards and atms in australia then you will be able to use them in athens. Just look it up the stuff about your account on the internet, its quicker and easier and all the info is there.

    Lisa. According to citibanks website it is fee free to withdraw overseas from an ATM but you will be charged currency conversion fees. The info isn't hard to find. I'm assuming it's just a normal Citibank visa or master you have. And honestly in the scheme of things you are sweating the small stuff. Concentrate on getting yourself well instead of worrying about currency and banks!!!!
    Your easiest option is to get a travel money card from one of the big banks. Pre load with euros and be done with it.

    Also @lissimmo your only going for a couple of days so if you did incure any fees I'm sure they would be minimal, from your previous posts I understand your taking cash as well so you probably won't end up by using your card much, so I really wouldn't worry about any "fees" it's not like your going to be slugged $50 every time you use it, it would be the same amount as if you used your card to buy something from an overseas vendor on a website, your bank would charge a conversion fee with that as well, Greece isn't a 3rd world country so there is no problems with cash, banks or atms
