What Currency should I bring to Turkey

You can exchange your currency anywhere in Turkey, almost in any shop, and you can shop with your currency in Touristic areas.

Whatever you do, do not exchange your currency in your home country.

Banks, Tour Operators, Post Office you 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 until you get to your hotel, head to town and you can change in any shop whether it is a jewellery shop, travel agent or at the kiosk

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

It would be the right thing to note that upon your arrival at the Turkish Airports, Banks do have currency exchange stalls, they are a rip-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. If you are going be using the cash machines often, then may I suggest that you do check with your bank the commission rates to avoid any surprise bills when you get back home.

Currency depending on the area

Although foreign currency is widely accepted and used all over 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. For the non-touristic areas, it would be wise to be prepared as you may find it challenging to use your currency

Take with you small banknotes in fives and tens. These will make it easy for you to use your currency

Scottish Bank Notes

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

Oh Yes, major cards are accepted everywhere.
