    Taking Money to Turkey on Holiday

    Hi, I am going to Turkey (Fethiye, Olu Deniz) in four weeks and want to take about £1400 with me. I'm very nervous about taking this in cash and have been investigating currency cards, but because they are in Euros or Dollars wonder if they are going to leave me much out of pocket. I believe cashwise my best bet is to take my money as sterling and change it there, but card wise I am concerned about having it changed to Euros to go on the card and then changed to lira to withdraw. I am also a little concerned about the safety of cash machines whilst there. Am I being too cautious? Has anyone got advice on taking money to Turkey? Thanks, Guy
