Hi, i'm just about to head off for my two weeks in the sun,previously we would use those internet booths you find dotted about the place to check email,surf etc... but how safe/unsafe is it to use these places to check online banking ? Am i being cynical in assuming that these places run all manner of keylogging software ? I dont intend to access my account while on holiday because of this fear and wonder does anyone here have any opinions on this matter.

i would not trust them, is the owner dodgy, or if ok what about his staff?.
look at credit cards even respected companies have had dodgy staff cloning credit cards, therefore internet caefs could have dodgy staff.

i would use the free comnputer access provided in banks for checking internet bank statements. unless you can't get to the bank in the first place
