In turkey.. query about currency conversion rate


Hi All

I am currently in turkey

I have used Starling to pay for things however I had a query

I paid 44 turkish lira and on Starling this came up as £8.64 (£1=Try 5.09)

However when I went onto currency xchange website such as and entered 44 turkish lira to £, it comes to £8.59637

It looks like Starling has taken more from me, I thought using Starling I should get the exact rate without commission?

Am I wrong?

Can someone please clarify?

Thank you all
