Lycian Adventure Trails
Hints & Tips
- The local currency is Turkish Lira (TL) although many shops and bars will accept Sterling (except in the smaller villages on the treks), however any change will usually be given in TL.
- Exchange Rates are usually more favourable at the resort although it is useful to bring a small amount of TL to begin with.
- Credit/Debit cards and travellers cheques are not widely accepted, cash is recommended.
- There are ATM’s if needed, withdraw sterling (no bank charges) and change up locally, there are plenty of places locally where you can exchange into TL.
- Tipping is not obligatory and is at your discretion for restaurants, bars, guides and drivers.

Local buses are Dolmus (pronounced ‘DOL-MUSH’). These are little minibuses that drive around the local areas, they are very cheap and provide a regular service. The stops are marked with ‘D’, however you can stop a dolmus anywhere and if it is not full they will stop to pick you up and when you want to get off just ask the driver to stop. Sign boards in the front tell you where they are going. Each dolmus displays the price for the route inside and you pay when you get off.
Mobiles & Internet
There is generally a good network signal, although call and data roaming costs are high (worldwide tariffs usually apply). Telephone calling cards can be purchased in resort. Free WIFI is available in most bars, restaurants and hotels.
Turkey operates on 220 volts, 50 Hz, with round-prong European-style plugs that fit into recessed wall sockets /points.
The pipe-work is narrow in some of the older properties and when requested to do so toilet paper should be put in the bins provided, not down the toilet.
