Can anyone tell me the current GBP/Lira exchange rate, and is it advisable to take only a small amount (for first day tips etc) with you ?

I will be going there next week for a week.

Our Turkish Cypriot secretary has advised converting only small amounts as most people will accept sterling, dollars or euros and give the change back in liras. She claims that the exchange rate offered by shopkeepers and restaurants is generally fair.

I also plan to use ATM's. They have branches of HSBC. At least one of the Turkish banks also has ATM's that take UK credit or debit cards.
