Re: Transfer sterling to UK

You will be cheaper to have a sterling a/c and then transfer via the internet, cost approx 50 TL, much more if you get the bank to do it.

dont think fx will do the transfer from Turkey to Uk. We tried.... We have had loads of problems trying to get our money back from turkey to Uk... Depends on which bank you use, some are much easier than others.... You will need a sterling account at your turkish bank..... We could not with all the will in the world transfer from TEB to UK cos we had joint account and it would not allow the transfer.... ALTHOUGH we have an account also at DENIZ bank which did allow us to send to uk ( from sterling account ), therefore we transferred what we had at TEB to DEniz then sent to UK to Santander.. bit of a pain but the only way we managed it........ They charged us 50TL for the transfer, it took one full week for the funds to arrive in our UK account.. hope this helps

Would it pay to fly out and sort it ?

Is that transferring Turkish Lira or are you transferring Turkish Lira into a Sterling account first?

I had the same issue with Garanti and cannot remember the detail now as it is confusing but I was using (I think) the wrong type of transfer as that also showed a 5000tl limit, when the correct one was used there was no limit on transferring sterling.

If you use the search facility there are a few threads on transferring back to the uk, here is one link.

Re: Transfer sterling to UK

Thanks but have tried every type of online transfer available on website for transferring sterling from my sterling account to account in uk but all to no avail. Have rung branch who confirm that it is no possible to increase limit from the equivalent of 5,000 Tl without visiting the branch, which I am unable to do. So if anyone has any advice I would be more than grateful. Regards
