Thanks just thought this was a good rate compared to other years I've been there.

Any commission to pay on top of this rate please?

Thanks OP. Or,as they say in Istanbul,Efharisto.

I think you are in the wrong country with that one

Flying out 23rd for a week exchange rate looks to be getting better by the day

I'm not sure about online I got mine instore and no commission.

Why would anyone want to go to Turkey?

This deal is about a currency rate which some members may find useful, myself included. Its not a discussion on holiday destination preferences so your comment is not really helpful.

Come back from Turkey a few weeks ago. You will get a much better rate there than you do over here.

If you haven't been there you will never know. Good job the country isn't as closed as your mind.

If there is a Turkish bank named Isbank in resort with an ATM exchange machine, you can get a better rate than any bank or exchange place in UK. Just take your spends in £20 notes and change there.

Just got back from Turkey, all prices were in Euros everywhere... they prefer Euros to their own lira.

Correct. Generally the banks and Doviz (change shops) will give you just a few kurus less than the market rate. Anywhere between 4.16 - 4.19 to the £1 a couple of days ago, so its cold from me.

If you don't have any TL, only change enough to see you through the time before you can change sterling locally. Many ATM's will dispense TL, GBP & EUR - depends on your card issuer what is the best deal.

Must have been Antalya province, further west such as Fethiye, Marmaris etc they're more into sterling. Turks always prefer hard currencies to the lira, they know how volatile it can be, but always ask for the TL menu (or price). The rate they use when calculating EUR/GBP to TL does not favour the tourist!

Turkey is outstanding - and a superb place to stock up on "replica" merchandise (which is often on a par with the genuine article quality-wise )

I noticed that but they do still take lira and at 4 to the £1 I couldn't refuse. I'll just take a mixture.

Replica merchandise on par with the genuine goods, I don't think so. Maybe your mind tells you that, but the quality will be nowhere near as good.
