Istanbul Asian Side Guide

A visit to Istanbul is never complete without a journey up the Bosphorus, a strait which separates Europe and Asia. Aside from the only physical boundary between these two continents, the shores of the Bosphorus offer a mixture of past and present, or the grand and simple. Modern hotels, marble palaces, stone fortresses and small fishing villages can be seen on Istanbul Asian side. To see more of the area, one can embark at Eminn on one of the passenger boats. A boat excursion can take up to six hours and are reasonably priced. There are also some boats which offer private cruises and night mini cruises but you will need to arrange this with a travel agency before coming to Turkey.

Just past the bridge on the Asian side, you will see the Beylerbeyi Palace, built in 1861 by Sultan Abdlaziz to accommodate foreign heads of states who are visiting the Ottoman Empire. Behind the palace one will see the Camlica Hill, considered as the highest point of Istanbul. If you wish to enjoy the magnificent panorama, and the landscaped gardens, you can car hire from providers like Argus, Avis and CarHire 3000 so you can drive around the area.

On the opposite shore you will see the wooden Arnavutkoy and the luxurious modern apartments in Bebek. Traveling a few kilometers more will bring you to the Rumeli Hisari and Andolu Hisari, two fortresses facing each other like sentries guarding the city. The Goksu Palace, also known as Kucuksu Palace, stand next to the Anadolu Hisari on the Istanbul Asian side.

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 Carrentals.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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
