You will have no trouble finding an ATM in Greece in both large cities and small towns. Only withdraw as much cash as you think you will need for the next few days. It's better to use your Visa or MasterCard, which are the main credit cards accepted in Greece. Even better, try to get a debit card that doubles as a Visa or MasterCard.
In most cases, there is a goods and services tax of 19% except for goods like food which, for the majority of cases, has a tax of 9%. You need to spend a minimum of 120 euros to be eligible for a refund of the tax and you must fill out the relevant form and present to customs on departure.
