Cirali - Do people prefer payment in Turkish Lira or Euros?

Hi,

Travelling to Cirali this summer and wondering if restaurants, shops etc. prefer payment in Turkish Lira or Euros?

Many thanks for any advice on currency :)

They probably prefer euros because their exchange rate earns them an extra 15%. Pay in lira.

the majority of things in restaurants and shops items will be usually priced in liras..so pay in liras..but since you are coming from the UK you can also use GBP'S at some places..there are no atm's in Cirali..so be advised that you will need to get cash before your arrival.

many hotels in this area do quote their prices in euros so pay in euros for accommodations.

also if you use a credit card it is priced in liras and not only the turkish banks but YOUR bank card company will calculate the exchange rate..might be higher if you use a card

Unless you have some unused Euros, it doesn't seem to me to be worthwhile buying Euros here. Cirali is a very small village - and whilst hotels and larger restaurants would no doubt accept Euros, Sterling - any currency basically! - it would be a lot better to pay smaller amounts in Lira. Anyway, Turkish Lira is the currency of Turkey and I personally don't see the point in trying to pay in any other currency.
