Oludeniz/Hisaronu :currency- pound or lira?

What is better to carry with you: pound or turkish lira. What is the exchange rate that is calculated in the resort? Are there exchange offices around?

Its better to bring GBP and change the money over here as you get better rate than UK..Also some holiday makers change GBP to EURO and change to TL over here this time you loose value from exchange rate..So you better bring GBP and 2 change offices in Hisaronü , jewellery shops or even Post Office you can change the money ... also some places like trips you can pay GBP no problem at all..

Have a nice holiday..

Only take small amount of sterling to start you off.

You will get better exchange rates in resort of 10% or more.

The exchange rate today will be different to that of when you go as it fluctuates and our election coming in May will change things as well.

Plenty of cash machines around if required.

If you have any dollars or euros over from other travels take those as well as they are all spendable currencies out there.

I also agree, and strangely enough you can- in the main- get a better exchange at some of the jewellery shops than you would at an exchange office (as that is their sole business- to make money on the exchange) to be sure just ask around. A good tip is to change money (whenever it's possible) in £100s for example, it's then a lot easier to check your rate change. Most are very honest but better to be able to check.

also just to add onto already good info in this posting. some places (shops) offer better deals if you pay in sterling. be warned often it's not but ask for prices in sterling and lira if your maths is good and work it out from there! just got back from olu and was 2.33 to the pound

Most of the trips are priced in sterling, we found it easier to change about £100 at a time, keeping lira for drinks, food etc but paying for our trips in £'s.You can exchange everywhere in Olu, anytime. Small Supermarkets open till early hours of morning.
