Currency

Hi all

We fly off next Tuesday, 24th Sept and have heard the best exchange rate is over there (Turkish Lira) rather than getting it here. Is that right?

Can anyone tell me the best/easiest place to get currency from when we get there?

Also, are we ok with just Turkish Lira or will we need any Euros?

Thanks in advance

Steve

The best rate IS in Turkey. Get TL at Banks, PTTs (Post Offices), Change Offices and Jewellers. BUT, make sure you agree and understand what the rate is before you change your money.

Don't waste money buying Euros. You'll be paying commission to buy them and again to exchange them.
