Currency Exhange

Hi, can anyone give any advice as to where is best to exchange pounds to lire. I have read it is better to exchange most of ur money when in Turkey as you receive better exchange rate? Any advice would be appreciated as I am travelling next week. Thanks

You'll definitely get a better rate in Turkey.

Buy about £50 worth of Turkish Lira in the UK to cover you for the first couple of days and either change the rest of your sterling out here or use ATMs.

The first time I went to Turkey 5 years ago I took a small amount of Lira also, Everytime after that I took only Sterling and No Lira, If the shop has the choice they will take sterling ahead of Lira 100% of the time.

Lots of places offer no commission currency.

Came back last Friday and the rate was 2.40 to the pound.
