Your holiday is in Turkey. The currency of Turkey is the Turkish Lira. Bring Sterling and change it in Turkey for a better rate.

I'd change about £50 into Lira over here to get you started for your first day or so. And then take Stirling and change it to Lira in resort.

Most shops take Sterling and it's easier to haggle when paying with sterling

Most shops in Oludeniz will take lira because it's a British Resort. However, check the exchange rate they will give you as it may be a low one and favour them. Haggling is acceptable in Lira and I cannot see why you would get a better deal by haggling in Sterling. Also, if you move out of your resort to a Turkish working town like Fethiye you will pay in Lira.

You get a better deal by buying in sterling cos they exchange the money when the rate is higher, eg the winter.

I have Euro's left over from last year. I was going to take them to Olu and change into Lira, but would I be better changing to Sterling before I go?? Anyone know? Thanks :-)

Use your euros to buy duty free at Dalaman, either on arrival or coming home. All the prices are in Euros for some reason :-)

No point in loosing out by doing a double exchange, take them with you and either use them 'as is' or exchange them in the resort for lira.
