You’ll get a better exchange rate if you wait to change your money in Turkey than if you do it before you leave. Banks can do this for you, or you can withdraw Turkish Lira from ATMs around the country using Mastercard, Cirrus and Maestro cards.

Most ATMs in Turkey are operated by private companies, not by banks, so they can be a little fickle – therefore, having some cash on you is always a good idea. The most reputable banks are Akbank, Türk Is Bankasi, Garanti Bankasi, Yapi Kredi Bankasi, and Ziraat Bankasi.
