Turkey Money & Banking
Turkey money & banking is simple and straightforward, with a range of banks, foreign exchange bureaux and other financial facilities on offer in all major cities and towns. In the capital of Ankara and the major city of Istanbul especially one can find every financial service you require, from ATMS to banks.
The best option however is to be prepared, and either exchange your currency for Lira before you leave for your travels, or do this in Istanbul or Ankara – some of the smaller towns do not have much in the way of banking facilities, and running out of cash could be disastrous if you are stuck in a small rural area for days without being able to use credit card or draw funds. Generally speaking however, credits cards like Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted in the cities, at shops, restaurants as well as hotels and guesthouses.
