Numbers 1 and 2 for me- check what your bank charges before you go.

Maybe take some lira to get you by for a drink or two on the first day.

Option 2 Some banks I believe allow you to draw GB£ abroad without charges - LLoyds Bank is not one of these!

Option 3 - I believe all banks charge you for drawing your money inTL.

Option 1 The risk is loosing or having stolen a large amount of cash whilst you are travelling through busy airports.

Option 2 is the better although I do own up to option 3 as I'm lazy on holiday......

We tend to take sterling and bank card as back up, as we tend to have night flights we only change £20 into lira before we go. For tips etc, then we use Oz gold to change our money while over there
