Turkish holidays a third cheaper.
Resurgent pound means Britons heading to Turkey can get far more for their money
Britons heading to Turkey this summer can expect to get 35 per cent more for their money compared with last year, after the pound hit a five-year high against the lira.
Holidaymakers exchanging £100 will now get around 355 Turkish lira, up from around 260 lira this time last year, and 225 lira in the autumn of 2010.
The recent resurgence of the pound against a number of foreign currencies will provide a boost to travellers who have recently booked a break – and could encourage some to buy their holiday currency now.
As well as the Turkish lira, the pound has risen sharply against the South African rand (+31 per cent), the Indonesian rupiah (+31 per cent), the Brazilian real (+27 per cent), the Jamaican dollar (+22 per cent), and the Australian dollar (+21 per cent). It has also risen by at least 10 per cent against the Canadian dollar, the Thai baht, the Japanese yen and the Mexican peso, among other currencies.
