The life of the lira
Turkey’s official currency is the lira, which has existed in various forms since the mid-1800s. The ‘new’ lira was introduced in 2005 (although it has not been called ‘new’ since 2009) and the current series includes banknotes to the value of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 lira. Each lira is made up of 100 kurus.
A simple currency solution for your trip to Turkey
Because of changes in distribution of the lira, we offer another option for anyone travelling to Turkey: the Globe Cash Passport. This is a card onto which you load your money in GBP before leaving. The money is then converted into the local currency of the country you visit. This card is usable anywhere that accepts MasterCard, making it a great and flexible cash alternative.
