When is the best time to sell Turkish lira?

Can I exchange Turkish lira coins for cash?

If you're stuck with a bunch of change that you can't get rid of, consider keeping hold of it for a future holiday or donate it to a charity of your choice who will be glad to receive any coins regardless of value.

Is it safe to send Turkish lira in the post?

When posting your Turkish lira, we recommend you use Royal Mail's Special Delivery service which is fully insured and guaranteed to arrive on the next working day. Packages sent by Special Delivery go through a more secure process than regular mail and can be tracked from the moment they enter the system right up to the point of delivery where they must be signed for by the supplier. It is very rare for Royal Mail to lose a Special Delivery package, but in the unlikely event this does happen Royal Mail will refund you the entire insured amount plus postage costs. You can also reclaim your postage costs if Royal Mail do not deliver your currency on time.

When you purchase Special Delivery you'll be given an option to insure your package for up to £2,500 and you'll be presented a receipt which contains a tracking number and proof of postage. If you are sending more than £2,500 worth of Turkish lira, you can split them up into multiple packages and insure each package for an appropriate amount.

The cost of Special Delivery varies depending on the amount you've insured the package for, but we estimate this cost for you in our comparison results above. You should ensure that your Turkish lira are securely packaged before you post them; we recommend you use a plastic tamper-proof envelope that you can obtain from the Post Office when you purchase Special Delivery. If you are in any doubt, just ask the Post Office clerk to check your package before you send it and they will advise you on whether it is suitably packaged and insured.

How and when will I be paid for my Turkish lira?

For orders sent by post you'll be paid by Bank Transfer within 3 working days from the day you currency is received. For orders exchanged in person you'll be paid immediately in cash.

What happens if the buy back rate changes before my Turkish lira have been received?

The Turkish lira buy back rate you receive will be the prevailing rate on the day your currency is received. This rate does not usually change significantly from day to day but it does mean you may receive slightly more or slightly less than the amount quoted today.

If you're unhappy with the final amount received, you can arrange to have your currency returned minus postage costs.

Can I sell Turkish lira that are old, withdrawn or out-of-circulation?

Every so often, a country will update it's currency and issue a new set of notes or coins whilst simultaneously withdrawing the old ones. The withdrawn currency is usually accepted for a while after the issue of the new currency to allow a for graceful transition to take place, but eventually the old currency will cease to become legal tender. Once this happens, the old currency cannot usually be exchanged.

If you're unsure whether the Turkish lira you have can still be exchanged, we recommend you contact the buyer beforehand and they will gladly help you to determine whether your notes can be accepted.

Most currency suppliers won't buy back Turkish lira coins. If you're stuck with a bunch of change that you can't get rid of, keep hold of it for a future holiday or consider donating it to charity.
