Top tips for renting a car in Istanbul

  • Renting a car in Istanbul will provide you with the opportunity to travel at your own pace and take in the Turkish wonders that most appeal to you. Head west and take in the stunning Aegean coastline, go south to the Mediterranean shore dubbed the Turquoise Coast, or check out the curving wonder that is the Taurus Mountains. There is plenty to see and do in Istanbul, with a long list of sightseeing, dining, and shopping attractions in the city. Having access to a car will mean that you can make the most of the city and enjoy your dream holiday.
  • Istanbul Atatürk Airport has connecting flights all across the world and gives travelers the opportunity to rent from major car hire companies. It is best to research your preferred company using KAYAK now to make picking up your car on arrival even smoother. After collecting your baggage, continue towards exit Gate A and you will find the counter of your chosen company.
  • Ensure that you have a decent GPS navigation device, as some streets names in Istanbul are not labeled clearly or at all. Also look to invest in a physical road map and use landmarks to familiarize yourself. If you are planning on traveling a decent distance outside of the city limits of Istanbul, ensure your hire company has the option of providing a KGS card for access to the tollways. These tollways will make your travel route considerably quicker.
  • 15 million people live in Istanbul, and this can turn the roads into a circus in rush hour. The peak morning commute occurs between 7:30 am and 9:30 am, while in the evening it is best to avoid driving between 5 pm and 8:30 pm if possible. Specifically, the E-5 and TEM motorways will get congested as city workers make their daily commute, so if you can reroute your drive to avoid these you will save lots of time.
