Hee, Hee, Hee, ......or, the equivalent of 10 Thousand Euro, get caught with any more at a British airport, and they can confiscate ALL of it, until you can prove that you are not money laundering, and that it came from a legal transaction,.... in which case , the Euro equivalent amount will be returned, and if Customs and Excise are in a good mood that day, you MAY get back the surplus ,..... MAYBE !!

Why would you want to?

The lira at the moment is doing a very good impression of a house brick off a cliff.

Why don't you just change the cash into GBP at your Turkish bank and then do an electronic transfer over to your UK account, there isn't a limit and your are free to move money that is legally held here.

The official amount in cash and keeping with you and without too much proof needed of taking it out from the bank is,
the equivalent to $5000  ( usd), so about 12000tl at today's rate.  If in doubt, check the IATA site for Turkish import/export regulations etc.

And wheelbarrow jokes aside, I have known people who have attempted to walk through and out via Dalaman airport, with the entire proceeds of a property sale stuffed in a holdall.

They didn't succeed. The process then becomes that you  need to go to court and they don't need to prove anything - the court case is for you to attempt to show the money is legally yours and that you should be allowed to have it back. Could take years.

I appreciate the question may not be about huge quantities. But your idea of huge and theirs may differ significantly.

Ultimately the best advice on this page is from Rimms.

Patch hasn't posted a response in the two months since he posed the question. Perhaps we'll never know why he/she wants to take TL back to the UK. Proceeds of a bank robbery or drug deal do you suppose?

Perhaps there isn't wifi at the "Tasyaka Hilton"  ;)
