Garanti Bank -Transfer Limits and costs

I recently went onto the Garanti website but couldn't find the answers I was looking for.
Basically, I am shortly about to convert some Lira to Sterling via my Garanti App and then occasionally transfer the Sterling back to my UK bank.
Could anyone tell me what the daily limits are please, first for the conversion of Lira to Sterling and then the daily limits on transferring Sterling to the UK and of course the scale of costs?
Thanks in anticipation.

Re: Garanti Bank -Transfer Limits and costs

As far as I know you can change your daily limits to suit your purposes. When we bought a car we upped the limit so as to send the money in decent sized batches. afterwards we reduced it for security reasons. Have a look online and see if you can do it.

I tried to increase my maximum transfer limit earlier this year for the same reason, but the web site would only allow a maximum of 10,000 TL per day, and when I checked by messaging the bank, they confirmed the same maximum.
Maybe there is some discretion and I am seen as dodgy!

Re: Garanti Bank -Transfer Limits and costs

If I've got this right, and apologies if not, I can transfer 10,000 TL or Sterling equivalent, currently about 1460, per day back to my UK bank?

We sent around 30k back a year or so ago and no-one asked anything about where the money had come from.

Re: Garanti Bank -Transfer Limits and costs

We sent back the best part of 200,000 with no questions asked, in person from the HSBC in Bodrum, we had been declaring to HMRC both our foreign income and interest for years, we also had a paper trail of all our transactions, we also declared CGT when it was due.
A good few years before we had sent back 15000 which the bank held until we answered some simple questions as to where it was from.
