Money

 
  Greece's major banks all have branches in Rethymnon, and most of these banks will provide currency exchange services.  Bank hours are generally the following: Monday - Thursday 08.00-14.30hrs, Friday 08.00-14.00hrs.  Many banks provide 24 hour ATM services, additional ATM machines may be found at various locations in Rethymnon centre.
Western Union money transfer services are available at the main Post Office and in the News Stand on Plateia Iroon.
Several tour companies and travel agents in Rethymnon also offer currency exchange facilities; it is of course advisable to check daily rates and commission before proceeding with any transaction.  In Rethymnon itself credit cards are widely accepted in tourist shops and restaurants, however, in local kafeneions and off the beaten track payment is more likely to be cash only.  If in doubt, ask!
