Turkey Travel Advice

Banking hours

Most banks operate between 9:00 and 17:00, and during these hours you will have full access to all bank services. Turkish banks remain open during lunch hours, but you may find yourself waiting a long time for service if you choose to do your banking at this busy time of day.

Money & travellers cheques

It is recommended that you take a mix of Sterling cash, traveller’s cheques and a small amount of Turkish Lira, (the exchange rate is better in Turkey). If you are taking travellers cheques remember to make a list of serial numbers and keep this separate from the travellers cheques together with contact telephone numbers for the provider of the cheques. I Scottish notes are not accepted in Turkey.

What to take

Travel light is the most sensible advice. Good swim wear, effective sun tan lotion, comfortable shoes, sunglasses, a light jacket or sweater and a pair of light trousers for the evening and a sun hat. If you are travelling as a couple or a family don’t pack one bag for each family member, mix the clothes up. In the unlikely event that a bag is lost by the airline you won’t be completely without clothes for one member of the family. Don’t forget to pack (in hand luggage) such things as essential medicines, spare spectacles or contact lenses and fluid, and if you are planning to hire a car your driving license.

Health requirements

If you take prescribed medicine make sure that you take enough for your stay in Turkey; if possible take a copy of the prescription and carry some or all with you in your hand luggage. Make up a small travellers first aid kit containing small quantities of proprietary upset stomach remedies, travel sickness pills, aspirin or similar, plasters, a dressing, antiseptic cream, insect repellent and burn cream.
