ATMs/Cash Machines in Turkey
Automated teller (cash) machines (cashpoints, bancomats) are everywhere in Turkish cities, airports, and even in most small towns.
Choose your language: Turkish or English for sure, and sometimes French and German. Just push a button to get screen prompts in your language.
North Americans! Note that Turkish ATM keypads usually do not have alphabetical keys (ABC for 2, DEF for 3, etc: see the keypad at lower right on this page). If your PIN/password is actually a word, and you’re used to pressing the letter keys, you’ll have to translate your password into numbers. (Your mobile phone keypadmay have the letters on it.)
Your home-bank account will be debited for the amount you withdraw from a Turkish ATM (plus a service charge, of course).
These machines issue Turkish liras, euros or US dollars, as you wish wth a service fee!
Sometimes there are glitches: the machine doesn’t recognize your card, your bank or your account, or the data lines or computers are insufficient to handle the data traffic. Try later, or try some other bank’s cash machine.
