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?
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.
