    ATM currency

    Maybe a silly question but do the ATM's in Alanya dish out Lira only or can you choose currency? I will be using my card when I'm there as I get paid while we are in Turkey. Just for information - I have a Santander Debit card.

    Currency - Travelex

    I've noticed that Lira has not been available on the Travelex website for some time but Travelex now states that it no longer sells Lira. Seems odd that a firm of this size no longer offers currency for such a popular destination. It's a shame as their rates were generally very good.

    Making money from currency movements

    Is there a better way than waiting until the lira drops to turn money into sterling. Are there any financial wizards. Would turning lira to another currency then back to sterling be any good.
