Car hire in Turkey

As is befitting for the Gateway to the East, Turkey is a pleasing contrast of mosque minarets and domes sitting beside mountains and pristine beach resorts. Ancient ruins dot the countryside, from Roman walls in Pamphylia to the fabled Greek Temple of the Artemis site in Ephesus. Turkey car hire is inexpensive, but it is advisable to book online before you go.

Major airports and ports

Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is the primary international gateway to Turkey. Sabiha Gokcen Airport is just east of Istanbul and a hub for budget and charter airline flights. Airports at Adana, Samsun, Antalya, Bodrum and Izmir handle domestic and charter services. There are also ferries from the Greek Aegean islands to Turkey. Bodrum is the most popular port receiving ferries from Kos and Rhodes in summer.

Transport

Travelling around Turkey can be fairly cheap with bus, train and taxis among options. Trains in general are good, but do not cover the whole country, while the bus network goes to far-flung locations but seats are cramped and sweaty. Shared dolmus taxis run fixed routes similar to buses, but these too are usually very crowded. Hertz and National are among the companies with Turkish offices.

Driving tips

Drivers in Turkey need international licences, although most of the car hire firms will accept a full UK license. Motorists drive on the right in Turkey, and the minimum age is 17, although car hire companies only rent to drivers over 21. Not all Turkish vehicle users have comprehensive insurance cover, so people getting car rental in Turkey should go for minimum excess charges when choosing their policy.

Places to visit

Although Istanbul's charms and historic sites are abundant, many holidaymakers choose Turkey for its beach resorts along the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Monuments and cultural locations are never far away however, allowing visitors to combine a spot of culture with a relaxing holiday. Ephesus is near Kusadasi, while the Sumela Monastery and Sebinkarahisar Castle can be found on the northern coast.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
