  Has the Euro made it More Expensive?

Corfu Travel Guide with tips and advice for this Greek Island. October newsletter.

Since the Euro's introduction, it has been readily accepted. My only criticism is the coins. After nearly a year of handling them, I still get confused. The shot above is of our till after a busy day at the taverna! Notice just how similar the coins are. The notes are fine, but all the coins are golden in colour and difficult to distinguish between.

Many have commented that 'things have gone up with the Euro'. Well maybe. I have a masters in computing and economics, and realise that consumers  only spent their hard earned money on an item if they perceive that it offers value for money. If it does not then they will not buy. If some companies have increased their prices then the consumer can and will shop elsewhere.
     Has the Euro made it easier? For us a little. Gone are the days when Italians would come over in their high-powered boats and demand to pay in Lira - often arguing over the rate! The next time we drive to England we will not end up with a bag of change after the trip. With the increased dependence on plastic money though, I wonder how long it will be before the coins and notes just disappear.
