However, the rate you will be offered is likely to be significantly lower than the actual value of the euro, which means that paying in euros in Turkey will cost you a lot of money. Always pay in Turkish Lira, the local currency. Can you pay with a credit card in Turkey? Yes, but there will be extra fees for this service.
In fact, it is almost impossible to pay in euros in Turkey because banks only offer poor rates and there are no credit cards accepted by Turks. If you can't pay in cash, then you'll need to pay up front or at the time of service. Either way, you'll need to send money out of the country.
Turkish Lira are used in place of dollars in much of Europe - including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. But not all shops and restaurants will accept them at par value, so check before you go shopping or eating out.
If you are coming from Europe, try to change some of your euros into lira before you leave. There are many exchange offices around Istanbul. They usually charge a fee for their service but the rate they give you will be better than what you'll get at the bank.
Another option is to bring your own cash from home and use it when you travel. That way you won't be forced to use the local currency which may not be favorable to you.
Is it possible to use English money in Turkey? You certainly can. Most international currencies, including the euro and dollar, are accepted in all touristy holiday locations' pubs, restaurants, and stores. (The only exception is Scottish banknotes, which are seldom acknowledged in Turkey.) 2018 Nian 4 Yue 22 RiRiRiRiRiRiRiRiRiRi.
However, we recommend that you bring your own currency from home because there are no official rates of exchange for tourists. At the most basic level, you should be able to change £20 into $40 at a bank or cashier. But things may go wrong if the Turkish lira falls in value or if you're unable to get a foreign credit card to pay for items.
In addition, please note that some businesses will add additional charges when you use dollars instead of Turkish Liras. For example, hotels often require payment in local currency; if you don't want to risk having any extra fees added on, then we recommend bringing your own money.
Finally, we would like to point out that Turkey has recently been through quite an economic crisis. As of April 2019, there are fears that the country could actually collapse into bankruptcy. While this situation looks unlikely, we suggest that you keep an eye on the news before you travel to make sure there are no further problems with the Turkish lira.
In conclusion, yes, it is acceptable to use English money in Turkey.
Turkey's legal currency is the Turkish lira. The euro is not a currency that is used throughout Europe. It is usually preferable to use the legal money of the nation you are visiting. There may be a few people/places in, say, Istanbul who will accept both euro and Turkish lira. But generally speaking, they will only accept one type of currency.
The best way to get around Turkey's expensive costs is to use the local bus service or the ferry. The local bus service is called "otobüs" and can be very convenient for short trips. They run on a single fare system, so there's no need to buy tickets before boarding. However, they are not as efficient as other forms of transportation and rarely run when needed. The ferries are also an affordable option for getting around the country. There are two types of ferries available in the ports of call: the car ferry and the catamaran ferry.
The choice of where to stay in Turkey depends on how much you want to spend. If you're on a budget, try to find a place that has air-conditioning and a private bathroom. These can be hard to find in small towns in the south of Turkey. If you want to live like a local man or woman, then don't worry about cost too much. Just make sure that you find a place with a proper bed and a clean toilet.
