Help with bank
 
hi all on tlf.
Has anyone exchanged from Turkish lira to pound sterling whilst in England using online banking for akbank bank account?
If so, how is it done in order to prepare for the funds to be transferred to English bank account. And what is the best way to transfer it if living in England.
Any help/advice would be much appreciated.
Thank you

First you need to move the Lira to your GBP (Sterling) Account.

Then open your turkish GBP account and use the transfer option to send to your UK IBAN number from your Turkish account to your UK account.

Failing that if you Give Unal a ring, or to start with send a eMail, he will be able to help you and his english is very good.

We already have our lira in Akbank from the sale of our apartment, but was trying to ascertain how to exchange the currency via online access.
Thank you

Just in case I'm not reading your reply properly, maybe what I should have said to start with is:

''First you need to move the Lira to your Akbank TURKISH GBP (Sterling) Account''

Then using your turkish Iban number you can then transfer the sterling to your UK account.

You should be able to do it online, we bank with hsbc and I need a euro account and they tell me I can do that online.

Not sure but I think you can open one online.

If not phone Unal and he will do it for you.
