Could anyone tell me the current exchange rate for side from British pound to lira please?
4.46 TL to £1 at the local PTT Post Office now = a lot better rate than you would get anywhere in the UK.
That's great many thanks
I believe the PTT are now closed until Tuesday. Is there anywhere else that will be open over the Eid Al-Adha Festival that has reasonable rates?
I would say lira as the exchange rate for the pound is awful everywhere at the moment thanks to brexit
I arrived at Antalya airport yesterday and noted the exchange rates quoted there - they were terrible! - worst I have seen anywhere at 3.88 TL to £1 when here in Side the going rate is 4.46 TL to £1. Most things are priced in Euros but you will always be better off paying in TL as that is the Turkish currency of course. I suggest you change about £50 in the UK to TL before coming to Side to get you started, then go to the PTT or Exchange Offices in Side for UK cash to TL cash. Get a few 10 TL notes to give as tips along the way - always greatly appreciated - and it saves the locals going to the bank to exchange the Euros.
I've been to marmaris 10 years now and there they accept any currency so I can't understand why it is that side is so different
