Which currency to take?

Hi

We are travelling to Lara Beach this summer and I am undecided about whether to take lira or euros. Which is the best option?

Thanks

Don’t bother with euros unless you’ve got some as you’ll just end up paying twice to convert them to lira as I presume you’re in the UK

Most people take Stirling and change over in Turkey as the rate is normally better but bring a small amount of lira from the U.K. just to get you going at the start

I normally bring a £100 worth in lira and then change as we go
