Can I sell my leftover Lira?
In Turkey, your pound is likely to stretch further than it would in most other popular summer sun destinations. If you end up bringing holiday money back with you, don’t just leave it gathering dust.
Take it to one of our travel money bureaux and we’ll exchange your Turkish Lira to Pounds. We buy back most foreign currency notes in denominations we sell (buy back rates vary daily).
