Hiring and driving a car in Turkey
Car travel gives you freedom to go where you want at your own pace, whether you drive your own car to Turkey or rent a car in Turkey. You are not limited to the times of public transport or guided tours, and you can take your time to visit some of the places of interest which are off the beaten path. Just remember that fuel/gasoline costs in Turkey are among the highest in the world.
In Turkey like most of Europe we drive on the right. The Turkish infrastructure is excellent but Turkish drivers are not very disciplined and in rural areas you will share the road with tractors, donkeys and herds of sheep. Driving in Istanbul can be as scary as driving in Paris! As everywhere drive carefully and stop regularly - motorway facilities are extensive and top-class.
