Lira Freefall!!


am arriving very soon, and looking forward to visiting Dalyan after reading so many positive comments.

As the value of the Turkish lira seems to have fallen off the cliff in the last few weeks, have prices skyrocketed accordingly?

As a bloke that thought he was being smart in buying in a few months ago at 5.4 lira to the pound I am curious.

And yes, I realise that this still represents great value for money compared to what we got last year.

Hi Tim ,I would say the only thing that has really risen in price is alcohol.This is due to the tax imposed by the government so the bars and hotels have no control over this.

I heard they're checking people's cases and hand luggage on arrival for excess duty free. I'm scared to buy more than a litre in case I get caught

You can buy duty free on your arrival into Dalaman Airport! It’s located in the same area where luggage is collected.

Is that in addition to your allowance. In uk duty free, or 1 litre each in total?
