Turkish Lira rates updated 3 minutes ago.
Please note: due to unprecedented demand for Turkish lira over the past couple of days, we are receiving reports that some of the suppliers below are running out of stock faster than they can update the rates they are providing us with. This means you may visit a supplier, only to find that they do not have Turkish lira available to order. We are working with all of our suppliers to clarify the stock they still have left, but in the meantime you may need to check more than one supplier if your first choice does not have lira in stock. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this issue.

The Turkish Lira is the official currency of Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. It carries the International Standard Currency Code: TRY. Monetary policy is managed by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey who are responsible for regulating Turkey's currency market and protecting the value of the Turkish Lira along with the central government.
In December 2003 the Grand National Assembly of Turkey voted to revalue the country's troubled currency, and 6 zeros were removed from the Lira (1 Million old Lira equating to 1 New Turkish Lira) creating a new currency dubbed the 'Second Lira' or "Yeni Turk Lirasi" (meaning "New Turkish Lira"). This new currency was circulated on 1st January 2005 and replaced the old Lira at a ratio of 1,000,000:1. On 1st January 2009, "New" was removed from the second Lira, and new coins were issued with the amended name in various denominations ranging from 1 Kuru to 1 Lira (100 Kurus). Local currency can also be obtained from banks and exchange bureau, known as DOVIZ in Turkish.
In recent years Turkey has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe rivaling other countries like Spain. The Turkish Lira Exchange Rates offer extremely good value for money and over the last year we have seen an increase of 39% where GBP has continued to strengthen.
Before you travel to Turkey you can get advice from the UK Government website
If you are going to Turkey as part of a Mediterranean cruise and you are entering Turkey as part of a day trip as a British Citizen passport holder then you do not need a visa for the day. However, if you are going to Turkey for up to 90 days then you can apply for a visa upon entry which costs 10 GBP in cash.
Although from the 11th April 2014 Turkey are changing their visa entry requirements and you will need to apply for your visa in advance using their new online electronic visa system where you will still be required to pay. Other standard entry requirements include making sure you have a blank page for stamping in your passport and your passport must be valid for at least 6 months before you can enter the country. For more information on the new Turkish visa system please see the FCO website.
Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in Turkey and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
We compare travel insurance quotes to Turkey and other worldwide destinations, but you don't need to tell us your life story to get covered. In fact, we don't even ask for your name or email address, so you can be sure we won't bombard you with endless junk mail after requesting a quote.
If you need Turkish Lira in a hurry or don't want to wait in for home delivery, our Click & Collect service can search for Turkish Lira suppliers near you. Reserve and buy online and collect in-store at a time that's convenient for you.
If you need to send Turkish Lira overseas or receive funds from a bank account in Turkey, you may be better off using the services of a specialist foreign exchange broker.
