Changing Sterling.

We are used to taking Sterling with us and changing in Turkey, last year HSBC refused us even though we are HSBC premier [uk] customers. Garanti changed for us with no bother.
This year Garanti refused without the presentation of a Turkish ID card or a turkish tax number, scratching around now trying to find my number., Bu55er!

Re: Changing Sterling.

This requirement happened in the last two weeks Mollag. I change money at Ziraat Bank, and the cashier told me it was a security requirement because of the SOE. No charge at Ziraat or Yapi Kredi.

Re: Changing Sterling.

This is a new one. It's bound to catch loads of people out if they don't read Turkish Forums before they come out. It used to be just Scottish banknotes that were a problem.

Re: Changing Sterling.

I know the Scottish notes were a problem but Sterling is a new one to me.

Re: Changing Sterling.

Is this just banks that the new arrangements apply to or are currency exchange places now doing the same.

We exchanged 500 into Turkish Lire two or three weeks ago when we were out in Turkey without any problem what so ever.

Re: Changing Sterling.

Just spoke with friend in Marmaris and he said he had no problems when he arrived last week. I wonder if it is a branch problem more than a bank problem per se.

Re: Changing Sterling.

No Turkish bank will take 5 notes any more. Apparently the reason is that they cannot tell the difference beetween the old paper ones and the new plasticky ones.

Re: Changing Sterling.

I wonder if they will let you pay them into your sterling account? Then you could exchange them over the internet and spend your TL
