How we display buy back rates

You might notice the Turkish lira rates shown here are different to the Turkish lira rates offered by currency suppliers on our comparison pages. The rates are actually the same but are just presented in different ways. When we talk about the TRY / GBP exchange rate, we show the TRY rate relative to the pound so a rate of 0.04861 literally means 1 TRY = 0.04861 GBP.

However, UK currency suppliers choose to show this rate in terms of the amount of Turkish lira you would need to exchange to receive 1 GBP, so (1 /) 0.04861 becomes 20.57. Or put another way, 20.57 TRY = 1 GBP. The two rates are interchangeable but currency suppliers prefer to show the second rate which they call the buy back rate.
