Cur­rency: The lo­cal cur­rency in Turkey is the Turk­ish Lira (TL) available in the fol­low­ing de­nom­i­na­tions: ban­knotes: 5, 10, 20, 50 & 100 TL; coins: 10, 25 & 50 ku­rus and 1 TL.

Cash can usu­ally be ex­changed with­out com­mis­sion at bu­reaux de change (döviz), banks and ho­tels. (Note that Scot­tish notes are not ac­cepted in Turkey). Ex­change rates are pub­lished daily in Turk­ish news­pa­pers and can also be found at www.xe.com/ucc. Credit cards: Through­out Turkey the use of credit cards is be­com­ing more wide­spread and the net­work of ATMs is con­stantly ex­pand­ing, but out­side the main cities in eastern Turkey, travellers are well ad­vised to carry lo­cal cur­rency.

It is ad­vis­able to in­form your bank in ad­vance that you are trav­el­ling to Turkey as some will au­to­mat­i­cally put a stop on cards af­ter the first use abroad in an at­tempt to com­bat fraud.
