Top tips for hiring a car in Türkiye

  • While most people will not want to rent a car in Turkey to drive in huge cities like Istanbul, it can be a fantastic way to access other areas of the country that are usually only visited on guided tours or by slow and expensive public transport. Popular routes include the Aegean Coast (including Butterfly Valley), Cappadocia, and the one-day drive from Istanbul to the ancient city of Ephesus.
  • Many of the highways in Turkey operate on a modern toll collection system, for which it is possible to get an electronic HGS or OGS card. These automatically charge the toll fee when the car passes through the sensor—the driver just needs to make sure they’re in the correctly marked lane. Many rental cars already come equipped with these, but check with your agency before setting off. Highway tolls are typically around 2-3 TRY (0.35-0.50 USD) each.
  • Children under 10 years old may not travel in the front seat of a car in Turkey, while those shorter than 150 cm (59 in) and weighing less than 35 kg (77 lbs.) must be seated in an appropriate restraint. Rental agencies can provide baby and child seats for daily fees of around 2 TRY (5.50 USD) at an agency like Hertz.
  • When parking in Turkey, it is not uncommon to find a parking lot attendant who will look after your car for a small fee. Tourist attractions typically cost around 5-10 TRY (0.85-1.71 USD) for parking or might even be free, and the majority of hotels also have a dedicated parking lot. When in large cities like Istanbul, it is always best to opt for a secure lot, such as an OtoPark, which will cost around 5-10 TRY (0.85-1.71 USD) for two hours. Do not be surprised if uniformed attendants ask to keep the keys, in case the car needs to be moved to let another driver in or out.
