                  Benefits of planning ahead

                  Buying your Turkish Lira before you travel can be a good idea, as you’ll be able to pay for essentials like food, drink, taxis and service tips as soon as you land.

                  Picking up your currency beforehand means you won’t need to worry about having to find an ATM when you arrive so you can just get on with enjoying your holiday. You’ll also be able to avoid paying charges on any cash withdrawals.

                  It’s also worth remembering that foreign exchange rates can fluctuate. When you buy your Turkish Lira in advance, you can be sure of the rate you are going to get. If you withdraw cash when you arrive in Turkey, you may not get the same exchange rate.

                    Get your currency when it’s convenient for you

                    Use Click & Collect and arrange to pick up your Turkish Lira as part of your weekly shop, either from a Tesco Travel Money bureau or selected customer service desks. Or, you could try our home delivery service – free on all online orders of £500 or more.

                    Exchange rates can change throughout the day and will vary depending on whether you are buying in store, online or over the phone.
