Calling all mathematicians: currency conversions

Jump to last reply

We will be travelling to Turkey and can receive discounts at many hotels and on many tours by paying in cash with either Turkish Lira or Euros. We are from the U.S.A. I think the best exchange rate is to purchase the foreign currency at home through my bank (Bank of America). I will be purchasing both Turkish Lira and Euros for my trip. What I need help figuring out is if it is better to exchange US dollars to Turkish Lira for cash payments or exchange US dollars to Euros... I realize this will depend on the exchange rates but I was wondering now, assuming today's rates, if it makes much difference. We are only talking about $2000. I have no idea what Turkish Lira to Euro rate they will use in Turkey but many rates are posted in Euros.

Thanks!
