We only take some Sterling for the markets the rest we take as and when needed from the cashpoint from our Nationwide flexi account. Saves hassle and commission.

likewise, we take sterling and ytl in small amounts, and then just use the cash machine at the bottom of dolphin sq or gima. last week we only got 2.5 ytl to the pound in tinky.

Anne, dont be too hard on your mum, last week the rate was 2.504 tl and today the rate was 2.47tl so she didn;t do too bad.
This time last year the rate was 2.7+ so appears that the economy has kinda stabilised..ish
