You'll get a better rate in TRNC than in UK, so sterling it is.

Sterling...but....exchange it to YTL in the uk if you can get 2.45 or above in the meantime..it is unlikely to be this high in the summer as it is usual for it to go down during peak tourist times.

Thanxs 4 your quick replys

So is it expensive to eat out and drink then

As we went to paphos last year and a meal out for 4 and drinks was around 80/100 euros!

I thought that was expensive

If you don't have already get a Nationwide flex account (Debit Card) &Nationwide Credit card no charge for use to withdraw cash from the machines with the flex account and no penalty on exchange rates full commercial rate not the rip off consumer ones as TRNC & Turkey are classed as Europe by Nationwide there is no charge Cost of eating out is good work on 20-25 per head

Had lunch today in Nicosia just main courses char grilled salmon garlic king prawns coffee & beer 30 for 3 free appetisers Mezze bar by the Han
