Turkey's lira crisis explained
Doubt the travel agents will pass on any savings they will make by buying out the rooms at a better rate.
Doubt it as a lot of what the AIs serve is imported so it will cost them more.
Prices with tour operators are up massively for next year. So much so that we are out priced of hotels we've previously visited which is a huge shame for us!!!

Booking direct always saves money and takes very little effort if you want to stay in a hotel or appartment and explore. The tourist industry is very clued up, accommodation always happy to arrange transfers and generally it’s a stress free process at roughly half the cost. However, if you want the AI, entertainment provided holiday, not sure this is available independently.
The collapse in the Lira should reduce some hotel prices temporarily - until inflation takes it back. You can use HotelsCombined to send an alert when a particular hotel's rates come down.
All hotels price in euro I've found... Unless someone can find me a site to book on lira...
Can confirm prices for 2019 quoted now have risen sharply compared to what we paid this year.
In response to the OP: I very much doubt it. Hotel prices are set by supply and demand for hotel beds, not currencies. Unless there's a drop-off in the number of tourists visiting Turkey or a massive recession which hits Turkish domestic tourist nuöbers, you're not likely to see prices fall.
Demand is up in Turkey - no major incidents for a couple of years, Spanish hoteliers increased their rates, Egypt and Tunisia still subject to UK FCO warnings, etc.. Hotel rates are set in hard currencies the World over and converted on-the-fly for the buyer's convenience. Turkey is no different. The Lira depreciating dramatically will have little long-term effect.
I am paying the most I have ever paid to visit my favourite Turkish hotel in December. It may be the last time :-( Not only have rates gone up but for the first time Antalya coast hotels are charging solo-occupancy supplements across the board this winter. They must have been directed to for it to be so universal. It means I am paying almost double compared to two years ago. The last waltz....Edited: 16 August 2018, 18:06
In the last week i have tried to book direct with Regnum, Delphin and Papillon and all have stopped taking direct bookings until October.
