UK holidaymakers in Greece are refused cash exchange or withdrawal after Brexit
Tourists unable to change money as the Pound plunges
BRITS on holiday in Greece have been unable to withdraw cash today – with hotels and banks refusing to exchange it after the Pound plunged following yesterday’s historic vote for the UK to leave the EU.
Holidaymakers on the island of Kos told how this morning they have been told they can’t exchange currency because there is no official exchange rate from the European Central Bank.
One Brit on holiday in Kos, Matt Rooney, tweeted: “It’s beginning already! We’re in Greece, no cash exchange & no cash machine withdrawals for Brits. Great #brexitfail”
