Compare car rent

The new Turkish monetary unit, YTL for short, has a value of 0.50 euro. There are ATMs everywhere, so you don't have to bring cash.

If you know which places you are going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's that you can use with MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa

Food and drink

To avoid getting sick it's better not to drink tapwater and not have ice in your drinks. Buy botteled water instead, which is universally available.

Safety and security

Traveling in some countries or regions can be dangerous. That isn't always a reason not to go there, but part of preparing well for a trip includes finding out about possible risks.

The CIA World Factbook: Turkey is a good place to look. Of course you always should consult your own country's Foreign Department web site.


Find current information on the web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Turkey. Always consult your family doctor and your country's Health Department web site.
