Looking to get away for some last minute sun? Well, there are many reasons why Turkey should be high up on your hit list of destinations to visit before summer is out, mainly the sheer value for money Brits will be able to benefit from.
The strength of the Turkish lira has fallen by around 50% since the start of 2018, reaching an all-time low against the pound in recent times which has resulted in UK holidaymakers receiving much more currency for their hard-earned sterling.
At present, you can exchange £100 for in excess of 850 lira which is almost double last year’s figure of around 460, meaning Turkey travellers can make their holiday kitty stretch further, especially considering the low cost of trips to the country right now.
You should always convert your cash before travelling and consider using a prepaid card service such as WeSwap to get even more for your money - users of icelolly.com can even enjoy £10 free travel money when you load £50 or more onto your card!
Tourist numbers to Turkey have been flying over the last 12 months or so and offers available through our specially-selected Top Deals* feed have proven extremely popular. We currently have a 5* all inclusive holiday to Antalya and anaward winning all inclusive break to Kusadasi both available from £279pp!
It tends to be a country that divides opinion, however it’s worth noting that the majority of the country is deemed safe to travel to, including all of the traditional touristy areas, according to the latest government advice, and with loads of cheap deals up for grabs there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be gobbling up a tasty Turkey offering.
