Hi. We are thinking of returning to Alanya in November, Oba in particular. I wonder if anyone could tell me what the current situation is there with regards to Coronavirus. Is it life going on as normal (albeit with face masks) or are there stricter sanctions? Are there more cases than we are...
I Could not find a suitable thread so I thought I would start one.
It may be useful for TLF members living in Turkey to share their experiences of buying unusual items to give others an idea of what they can expect to pay.
Last week we bought some logs to burn in winter over the next few years...
Trying to get a HSBC Current account card sent to UK. HSBC did phone me and said they were having trouble sending cards to the UK. As any one else had this trouble ? How long do you think it will take them to sort out or how long should I give them, thank for any answers.
Has anybody come across any figures/graphs for prices over the last 5 years say?
Also interested in current 'average prices'
Yes I know 'prices' are very subjective but I'll give +-10% either way lol ;-)
Thanks in advance!
Time to awake an old question, which is, can anyone enlighten me on banks and their interest rates on Time accounts, obviously rates will vary with the amount being put on deposit so for arguments sake lets assume 250,000TL
For some reason, airties routers come as standard with port 1050 open, which is a fairly serious security problem. With earlier routers it was easy to stealthify this port by going to "management" then disabling "TR-069".
This option is no longer present on my current modem, an airties 5453.
I am helping a family member with getting their villa uptogether and we are looking at central heating.. the villa already has internal pipework but no rads or boiler etc..
It has been suggested from my limited knowledge of an electric boiler but would love some feedback from fellow board...
we are due out in the next couple of weeks for our final visit of the year. Can anyone tell me what the current local exchange rate is. 4.41 seems to be the best available in the UK at the moment.
Hi everyone, my family and I are thinking of purchasing a holiday villa in Kalkan but are unsure/concerned about the current political leanings/instability (do you see it as that?) in Turkey and any impact that would have in the medium to long term. I would love to hear your views on this. Thank...
I am considering driving across to Turkey for a long stay.
Does anyone know the current position on bringing a UK registered vehicle into Turkey, i.e. How long can it remain in the Country, can I drive back to the UK and return to Turkey again.
At the risk of being accused of scaremongering, I'm trying to get a feel from people on the ground as to how the Kurds fit in to the current political shenanigans in Turkey. The reason I'm asking is that I have family who take their kids on holiday to Kusadasi and I'm wondering whether they...
I set up a direct debit from my current account in April to pay my electric.

It then says 9/7/ 2013 ------2013 yili 1 Yariyil Hesap Isletim...
I will be going to Istanbul in a couple of weeks for 4 days & will need a new visa but before I come back at the end of May my passport will need to be renewed.
My question is would I need to show both passports when I return in May or would I have to buy a new visa even though I already have a...
Just wondered if anyone who is in Altinkum at the moment or has been recently could give me a guide as to what the prices are like at the mo..... I know things will most likely change once the season starts but its really just to give us an idea we are coming over soon and not been...
I'm considering selling our apartment in Altinkum this year, it's a two bed duplex only 200 metres from third beach, with great views of Didim marina.
Can anyone give any indication of what I might be able to get for it at this moment in time?
I paid £52K for it 5 years ago.
We are able to spend 4 months in Turkey this summer. We were over for a week or so in mid-march and on the last day a guy started talking to us about dsmart, but neither of us can recall what the associated charges were. We're in the Tuzla area, or going to be, can anyone give us a...
