Bills and Coins
There are currently bills of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Turkish Lira. Coins are 1 Lira and 50, 25, 10, 5 and 1 kuru (100 kuru = 1 Lira).
ATMs and Banks
You'll be able to find banks and cash points throughout Istanbul. Banks are open from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
Where can I change money?
Although we recommend that you simply take Turkish Lira out from the ATM, if you would like, you can change pounds, euros or dollars in the exchange bureau. They'll give you a slightly worse exchange rate than the bank, but will not charge you commission.
One Euro is worth approximately two Turkish Lira and a dollar is worth about 1.5 Lira.
