Question: I’m goıng to Iran from Turkey but I have no euro with me so I have to take off money from ATM in Turkey and then change Turkish Liras (TL) in Rail. I think that at the border is possible but the change is bad.
Do you know if it is possible to change in some banks in Van? Or in Tabriz? Or in other place from Van to Tabriz? Or if in the border there is a good change?
Answer: The currency in Iran, or the money used, is called Rial. The Toman is no longer an official currency. However it is still used on a daily basis in Iran and it refers to the amount of ten Rials.
As a tourist bring only cash to Iran because no kind of cards and cheques are acceptable in Iran. Dollar and Euro are both acceptable in Iran. The best places to exchange your currency to Rial is the banks, exchanges and airports inside Iran.
