TK website payment currency

It appears TK now lets you choose any currency ,but paying in TRY appears the best value? I converted the TRY price to USD using Google.

it has been like that forever - in the payment step you can select the currency. it came very handy 14 months ago when you paid with Visa in ARS and could get the tourist dollar exchange rate

We have some TK GC in USD through a settlement a couple of months ago. So, we tried to book flights ex-CPH using USD and it is not worth it by paying in USD even without forex fee. We will see if we can use them for shorter flights in the future.

I suggest you buy TK tickets ex US or other country where tickets are priced in USD, to use your vouchers - and pay for tickets ex. CPH in DKK.
