Lady in red: I believe that"Sagol" is also used when one wants to turn something down or refuse to buy something from a vendor. Wish we would get some insights of our friends here!

Oh yes I know that one - but you say 'Sağ ol (or sağ olun), teşekkurler' meaning 'thanks but no thanks' - it's a polite way of refusing something'. 'Teşekkurler' usually means 'no thanks' as well - so if you are offered something you want remember not to say that!

and what do you also reply with Sagol when somebody insists or bothers you trying to sell you something?

Me personally? I usually say something like 'Beğenmedım' or 'param yok'. I can't say that I have ever been that pestered to buy anything - maybe I look poor!!

Looking poor,ha, ha, ha. Best way to travel is to look inconspicuous, in humble, casual clothes. I am a nature girl anyhow.
