Re money exchange

Hi this is our first visit to icmeler in 20 years and I can see that people say it’s better to change gbp to lira locally or use Gbp in resort.

Please can you advise if you can draw out Gbp in resort and if restaurants and bars accept it or is it just the shops for say clothes shopping I’m not to keen on carrying a large amount of cash to change locally. Also do most restaurants and bars acccept card we are stopping at the sun blue apartments.

Yes, pretty much everywhere will accept sterling. There are no actual bankbranches in Icmeler any more - nearest ones are in Marmaris - but there are a number of ATMs around the resort and some do dispense sterling. Many - but not all - the bars and restaurants will also accept card payments.

Many of the bars & supermarkets ( ie corner shops) will either exchange sterling, or if you purchase goods they will give you your change in lira. Most either have rates advertised or will happily give you their rate if you ask.

I exchanged money with Eric (Avril Travel) got a good rate and he's excellent if you're looking to book any day trips.

There are several down beside the Florida at the top of the canal - some of them dispense sterling notes, and there's one near the Prince apartments/restaurant, on the way down to the beach from the main square, which does too.

Generally speaking, you will get a higher rate if you exchange in Turkey rather than the UK.
