Currency and Exchange in Cappadocia

Since January 1st, 2009, the Turkish Lira (TL) replaced the New Turkish Lira, which changed its name after four years of circulation.

The change of the Turkish Lira, against the Euro, is 1.00 Euro = 2.9 TL approximately. The currency changes frequently, so please check the internet for the actual exchange rate. There are coins of 5, 10, 25 and 50 kurus (cents) and 1 lira, and banknotes of 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 and 200 lira. In shops or taxis they usually do not accept large bills, so you should try to carry some change for small payments and always double check the change.
