Cash Machines in North Cyprus - withdrawing Turkish Lira

Post by Admin » Tue Dec 26, 2017 11:08 am

If you use a cash machine in North Cyprus to withdraw local currency (Turkish Lira) from a UK based (Sterling) account, the currency exchange rate that you receive (Sterling to Lira) will be considerably less than the rate that is available locally from a bank or exchange bureau.

For example, on a recent transaction, the difference between the currency exchange rate available locally on the day and the rate applied to the transaction, resulted in a loss of £10.45 on a withdrawal of £500. Add this to the charge made by the bank for completing the transaction which was £7.16 and the total cost of making the withdrawal was £17.61 (3.61%).

There are cash machines in North Cyprus that dispense UK Sterling and if you use one of these to make a withdrawal from a UK based (£ Sterling) account, no charges are applied to the transaction. Changing the Sterling to Turkish Lira using a local Bank or exchange bureau results in a considerable saving.
