As the island of Crete is a part of Greece, it’s also a part of the European Union. And just like the mainland, the currency in Crete is the Euro (€). There are lots of ways to buy your Euros before you leave, and this is the best option to make sure you get the most for your money. But if you do forget to get some before you jet off, can easily pick up the local currency while you’re out there.

The Euro is the most widely used currency on the European continent, so it’s ideal if you’re planning of travelling to lots of different countries across Europe.

Where can I buy Crete currency?

We’re proud to offer one of the most competitive currency rates around, and we’re always much cheaper than picking up your Crete currency last-minute at the airport.
If you don’t have time to get your Euros before you jump on the plane, the island has lots of handy ATM machines and foreign exchange bureaus. But, be prepared to pay a hefty surcharge for changing up Stirling to Euros in Crete, so it’s always best to exchange your holiday money before you leave to get the best deal.

If you’re not sure how much money you want to take away with you, it could be worth taking a closer look at the Thomas Cook Cash Passport.

What’s the Thomas Cook Cash Passport?

Thomas Cook Cash Passport is a pre-paid travel money card that you can take away with you; it’s clever way to avoid carrying cash when you’re on holiday, and a cheaper alternative to using your own debit or credit card abroad.

Just load your card with £50 or more to get started, and use it as you would with a normal payment card (it’s chip-and-pin protected). Add more whenever you want, online, in store, over the phone, by bank transfer, or via the app.
