The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) on Monday said that it is “business as usual” in the resorts in Greece, according to its members and UK holidaymakers.
In an update on its travel advisory for Britons travelling to Greece, which follows the country’s referendum result, ABTA underlined that bars, shops and restaurants are adequately supplied and open as usual.
“We do not anticipate that tour operators will need to rebook their customers to a different destination”, the association underlined.
ABTA noted that banks in Greece, as well as the Greek Stock Exchange, are currently closed due to the ongoing financial situation in the country.
“At this time, there are no limits on cash withdrawals for tourists using cards at ATMs. However, there are mixed reports on availability of cash from ATMs”, ABTA said and advised holidaymakers and travellers heading out to Greece to take enough euros in cash to cover all of their needs.
“Other payment methods such as credit and debit cards are accepted as normal in shops and restaurants”, the association informed.
“We would also advise holidaymakers and travellers, as we would with any destination, to take out travel insurance as soon as they book their holiday.”
ABTA said it is monitoring the situation closely and will work with its members on any developments.
