Turkish Money

Monetary System ...

The first thing to mention here should be the difficulty for a foreigner to get used to the zeros. We are not use if there is another money with so many zeros on it...

The national monetary unit is the Turkish lira (TL.). The coinage is in 25.000, 50.000 and 100.000 lira pieces. Bank notes are of 250.000, 500.000, 1.000,000, 5.000.000, 10.000.000 and 20.000.000 Turkish Lira. In order to see what they are like, please take a look below... 

Exchange Rates: The exchange rates for foreign currencies are published daily. You could check the value of your currency from the Currency Converter. You may exchange your money either in Post or Bank offices (open daily (Except Saturday and Sunday) between 09:00 to 17:00), Exchange offices (In touristy places are generally open until midnight), or at your hotel. You would get the best rate at the exchange office and the lowest at your hotel. 

Checks: Euro checks can be cashed immediately; so can traveler's checks upon producing identification. 

Credit Cards: The most widely accepted credit cards are Euro card, Diner's Club, Visa and MasterCard.  You may exchange traveler's checks at Post Offices in touristy places and at certain banks.
