What Currency should I bring to Turkey

it is so easy , you can exchange your currency anywhere, almost in any shop , and you can shop with your own currency.

What ever you do, do not exchange your currency in your home country. Banks, Tour Operaters , Post Officeyou name it all will tell you that they have the best exchange rates. NO they don't.

Your best move would be exchanging your currency in Turkey. Wait untill you get to your Hotel, head to town and you can change in any shop wether it is a jewellery shop, travel agent or at the kiosk

Please bare in mind that you can shop with your own currency Sterling | Dollar | Euro , as long as you don't expect the change in your own currency

It would be the right thing to note that up on your arrival at the Turkish Airports Banks do have currency exchange stalls , they are a ripp off and will take advantage of you. So, try to avoid them too.

ATM are everywhere and you can withdraw cash from most of them in either Turkish Lira | Dollar or Euro. Try the Currency Converter to find out whats the up to date currency in Turkey

Currency depending on the area

Altough foreign currency is widely accepted and used all over the Turkey, sometimes you may well experience problems in certain parts of Turkey. The Sterling | Dollar | Euro can be used and exchanged without any problem in the main touristic areas such as Istanbul , Antalya , Dalaman , Marmaris , Kusadasi etc. For the non touristic areas it would be wise to be prepared as you may find it difficult to use your own currency

Take with you small banknotes in fives and tens , these will make it easy for you to use your own currency

Scottish Bank Notes

Scottish bank notes are not much known therefore you may well experience some problems also same with 50 sterling banknotes.

Oh Yes, major cards are accepted everywhere.
