Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:
- Driver’s licence (both parts)
- The credit card used to book the reservation
- A UK passport to confirm your ID
- Printed confirmation of booking
Turkish authorities rigorously enforce parking restrictions and those found breaking the law will be hit with an on-the-spot fine or might even have their vehicle towed away if it is left in an obstructing manner. Petrol stations generally accept credit cards but some outlets in the countryside might only take cash. A first-aid kit, a fire extinguisher and a warning triangle must all be carried in the vehicle. In towns and cities, using a horn after 22:00 is generally prohibited.
Passengers are able to self-drive from the airport to the city in order to reach their hotels. Those that don’t wish to do this can take a taxi or organise a pick-up by their hotel. It is also possible to take a bus or coach.
