Know the open­ing hours of the es­tab­lish­ments you want to visit. They may vary across the coun­try as some own­ers prac­tice siesta at noon and some are closed on Sun­days.

With the is­suance of ATM with­drawal caps and the lo­cals hav­ing dif­fi­culty in ac­cess­ing banks, the num­ber of es­tab­lish­ments ac­cept­ing credit and debit cards has de­creased. It’s best to have cash on hand at all times.

Help keep lo­cal busi­ness own­ers and work­ers em­ployed by choos­ing lo­cal, when­ever pos­si­ble. Book flights through Greece’s flag­ship air­line Aegean Air, get a lo­cally owned BNB ac­com­mo­da­tion, and shop for sou­venirs at small, in­de­pen­dent hand­i­craft stores. Th­ese lit­tle ways of in­ject­ing liq­uid­ity to the coun­try’s econ­omy will go a long way in their road to re­cov­ery.
