Anna Apartments
« on: June 23, 2005, 02:49:02 PM »
Have just received an email from Anna confirming our Studio booking for 14 nights starting July 5th  

She informs me its Studio 7 - has anyone stayed in No.7? If so can you tell me what its like regarding size, veiws, balcony etc. I remember Ploppy posting a few pictures of the Anna Apts a few weeks ago so Paul if you have No.7 on film we would love to see it. (If it's tiny with no veiws etc - don't want to know - deal with that when we arrive).

What's best method for cashing money - 10 years ago we cashed travellers cheques at the Livicon (the guy looked like Phil Silvers - and still does - saw him last year when we were through for a few days), are credit cards or switch card a better option.

Ah well 12 sleeps and we'll there

Most people use debit cards to get cash out of one of the four dispensers.

The charges are generally reasonable as long as you don't get small amounts.
Usually 1.5% with a 1.50 minumum so go for at least 150 worth of Euros each time.
The exchange rates are usually competitive too although if you want to spend time shopping around you might do better.

Some UK banks don't charge for cash withdrawals abroad.
You find posts about it on this forum if you use the search facility.

One word of warning: Don't run too low on cash because the machines sometimes run out.

I agree with Yannis comment about the guy at the Livicon who looks like Phil Silvers .Only difference is that he never seems to smile
I am unsure about the best way of changing money .OK I know most people use the holes in the wall nowadays but the cost -minimu 1 50 and 1.5@ - seems to me to compare unfavourably with the cost of travellers cheques which is I think 1% and then of course no minimum charge - but you have to pay that commission on unused trav cheques . And if there is risk of the cash machines running out then that seems to me to make trav  cheques the better option ? Or am I just being old fashioned ?

You count the sleeps?
I prefer to count the working days  

I wish you wonderful holidays (usually going to Plakias is a surefire way to achieve that)

Nationwide make no charge for using ATMs abroad and the rate is good as well.
