The currency of Skiathos is the Euro which can be used across any of the Greek islands or the mainland. In Skiathos Town there are ATM and foreign exchange facilities available but these are not present in the rural parts of the island. We recommend you buy your travel money in advance of your holiday.
Changing your currency before you set off is easy! Purchase your travel money online, and it will be delivered to your door in just a few days. Don’t have time to exchange your cash beforehand? You will find bureaus in most resorts and airports.
Many local businesses prefer cash, so make sure you have a range of denominations. Cards are accepted in larger resorts, but the fees charged by banks make things hard on the independent businesses, so cash is always welcome.
It’s handy to take a credit card for emergencies, but do a bit of research before you go so you know what charges you might incur. Make a note of the card providers’ number too, so you know who to contact if your card is lost or stolen, and it’s always worth letting them know you’re going away so they don’t see transactions abroad as suspicious
