There are no banks outside of Corfu Town although many Tourist Information Offices and Hotels will exchange your Travelers Cheques and Sterling. Look for the exchange sign.

Credit cards

Most large shops, restaurants, hotels and car hire firms accept major international credit cards, although a majority of shops and bars will only accept cash.

Travellers Cheques

Travellers Cheques can be cashed at San Stefanos Travel, the Thomson Office and at many of the hotels, you will need your passport as ID.


Can be a nuisance although they are easily controlled with repellents and small electric machines which can be purchased from the local shops. The best we have found so far is a Boots clear non perfume repellent, seems to work when others fail!


Greek plumbing leaves a lot to be desired! as it uses small bore pipes, so bins are provided for toilet paper. It must not be flushed down the loo!


Many shops have metered telephones for which you must purchase a phone card in advance.


Dial 100, an all purpose emergency number, or contact your local tourist representative.
