Greece’s economic conditions has raised concerns for foreigners planning to travel to the area and advise to carry bank notes instead of cards.

In spite of Greece’s looming economic crisis, AOL has recently identified Mykonos Island as one of the top six European destinations to visit in 2015, predicting it to be especially popular amongst tourists over the upcoming summer months. In light of this declaration, foreign currency specialist released particularly competitive exchange rates for the relatively weakened euro, making the trending destination even more accessible to its European neighbours by cutting travel expenditures while in-country.

In response to its rise in demand, currency specialist is offering highly competitive exchange rates for the euro, a much safer option than prepaid and bank cards due to the current instability of Greece’s economy.

According to AOL, Skyscanner has dubbed Mykonos “the new Ibiza for 2015,” spurring popularity from its developing reputation as a party island after several highly-publicized celebrity visits sparked interest in the destination. Other locations AOL identified as being on Europe’s holiday hit list for 2015 include Milan, Slovenia, Marseille, North Coast 500 and Catalonia.

New luxury hotels, celebrity endorsements, and increased accessibility from the addition of direct flights from London’s Heathrow airport by British Airways have all contributed to the island’s growing tourist activity. Even so, the uncertainty of Greece’s economic conditions has raised concerns for foreigners planning to travel to the area and advise to carry bank notes instead of cards.
