Hi all


Some of the cash machines in Turkey allow you to select which currency you want, can anyone tell me of any additional charges that are applied when withdrawing £s

Seriously back to thread yes Charlie, we too used a Nationwide card with no charges in Fethiye recently.

I bank with Nationwide now for that reason. When we were out in Altinkum in Sept 2004 we had to withdraw £2600 from the cashpoint for the deposit for the apartment. This was before the Lira was changed and they had lower denominations. Over the course of 3 days we both drew out this money on our Abbey accounts. When we got back to the uk we found we had been charged £45 for all the withdrawals. I complained to Abbey that Nationwide don't charge so why should they and they gave me £50 as a token of goodwill :)

Anyway it costs about £2 or £3 per withdrawal I think based on that.

I've not seen the ATMs that let you choose the currency -but both hsbc and alliance and leicester debit cards charged for each withdrawal of lira we made at easter this year using different ATMs in Yalikavak - so i've just opened a nationwide account to get round this for the summer.
