  1. I am not a money whizz kid or some one who knows a lot about what is best to buy in regards to holiday money, so I am asking you what advice you can give regarding buying Turkish Lira for GBP for my holidays..
    Am I better buying Lira or euro or should I get a card with cash on it, where not going until May 2017 a long way off yet but I noticed that the Lira is rising so should I buy now or wait .
    I want to get £3000 so if I think you are offering a good deal I would do as you advise,thank you.

    Kind regards

  2. Hi Bernard,

    Thank you for your comment.

    If you are heading to Turkey next year you will need to take Turkish lira with you, not Euros. There are no dedicated Turkish lira currency cards so it will be better (cheaper) for you to take your lira in cash rather than loading it onto a prepaid card. The good news is Turkish lira are widely stocked by all major currency providers which means you should be able to get a great rate with a little shopping around. Take a look at our Turkish lira travel money page to see the best UK deals at the moment.

    As for when and where you should buy – our general advice is that you should buy your currency here in the UK before you travel so you can be sure of the exchange rate you will receive. If you leave your currency until you arrive in Turkey you may be restricted on where you can buy and / or be given a lower exchange rate. At least if you buy in the UK you will know in advance exactly what rate you will receive and you can be confident that the notes you receive will be genuine and high quality.

    As you are not travelling until May 2017 you have plenty of time to buy (we recommend you order no later than 4 working days before you travel) but I’m afraid I cannot advise on whether you should buy now or later because I don’t know how the exchange rate will change during this time. My best advice would be to keep an eye on the exchange rate like you have been doing, and buy your lira when you think it has reached a good point relative to the past.

    You are already on track to get the best possible lira rate by visiting this website. We work with the UK’s top currency providers to bring you the best deals, and with £3000 to spend you will automatically qualify for free home delivery on your order.

    Good luck with your purchase and I hope you have a fantastic holiday in Turkey next year!

    Kind regards,

    Dan Morley
