  1. Refueling stations (called a benzinci or a petrol istasiyonu) all over Turkey usually sell two octane grades of unleaded gasoline (benzin), and diesel (dizel or mazot). Some also care Euro deisel. At a Turkish petrol station, there will usually be a market where you can buy drinks, snacks, and auto accessories. Some have automatic car washes. At others, you can ask an attendant to wash your car for a small fee, and even vacuum clean the interior. All Turkish petrol stations are full-service. An attendant will come out to ask you what you want, refill your car, and usually clean the windsh
  2. Car Rental Prices The least expensive rental cars in Turkey are compact cars with manual (stick shift) transmissions and small engines which run on unleaded gasoline. They cost around 40 to 70 TL per day, and the cost goes up from there if you want a larger car, a van, an automatic transmission, or a diesel engine. If you are carrying passengers and luggage, planning to drive in mountainous areas, or on secondary roads where you will need to quickly pass trucks and other slow-moving vehicles, opt for a car with a larger engine. The cost of a rental car in Turkey will also vary accordi
  3. Collision Damage Insurance Collision Damage Insurance (CDI), also called Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), is practically always included with the cost of a rental car in Turkey. It covers damages to the rental car, with a deductible that you will have to pay before the insurance pays. If you pay a higher premium, you can eliminate the deductible and have the insurance cover all fees involved. CDW does not cover damage to headlights, tires, or the windshield. Headlights, Tires, and Windscreen You can also buy additional insurance to cover the headlights, tires and windscreen (windshi
  4. When you first start driving in Turkey, it can be a little scary, especially if you are from Europe, the UK, or the USA, where traffic laws are more closely followed and more strictly enforced. It might take you a few days to get used to it. Here's some useful information to help you get to that point. Driving in Turkey with a Foreign Driving License You can drive in Turkey on a foreign license for up to six months. So if you are in Turkey on holiday, and want to rent a car, your foreign license is fine. But if you live in Turkey, once you reach six months of residence, you must get a
  5. Police Checkpoints If you drive for any long distance in Turkey, you'll likely come across a police checkpoint. A police car will be parked on the side of the roads, and traffic cones arranged to form a lane for the vehicles being checked. In most cases, as soon as the police learn that you are a foreigner and driving a rental car, they will waive you on. If in doubt about the signal they are giving, pull over anyway to make sure. Police checks are set up for three main reasons: Routine license, registration, and insurance checks Drunk driver checks, where drivers must bl
  6. Toll Highways (Otoyol) Depending on where you are driving in Turkey, you may come across an otoyol, which is a modern highway where the speed limit is 120 KPH. Otoyols also have rest stops with petrol stations, restaurants, and other travel necessities strategically placed along their lengths. These are toll roads, and the only way you can pay the toll is by registering with the Hızlı Geçiş Sistemi (heez-lee geh-jees see-steh-mee) [HGS]), which means "Fast Pass System." This involves pre-paying into the system, and mounting an HGS transponder on the inside of your vehicle's windshield behi

  10. Hi allany information would be much appreciated. I am an Australian (age early 30's) with Turkish citizenship (passport) and plan to move to Bodrum area early next year. Currently we am living in London and would like to investigate if taking our car to Turkey would be a good idea.

  11. Nothing special, it is a six year old Astra turbo. It cost somewhere between two and three times what an equivalent car would have cost me in the UK. The equivalent price for Turks must be much more given the lower average wage in Turkey. To change the ownership of the car both we and the seller had to go to the Notary Public where the change of ownership paper was filled out, the money(cash) noted and given to the sellers. We got all the tax and insurance sorted out and new licence plates issued on Friday. My stepsons will be doing most of the driving, but it seems that

  13. Recently Turkish government decided to change the driving license appointment system (Randevu) from Emniyet to Nufus and before it was really easy to get appointment from the Emniyet website and it only took few seconds. But now since they changed it from 2nd of April the Nufus system doesn't work for citizens of other countries and they can't apply for a drivers license. I wanted to know if anyone is experiencing the same issue
  14. I am new to the forum though not to Turkey. I have a transponder on my car for tolls but the condition doesn't look too good after four years. Does anyone have experience of driving through the tolls with one like this?
  15. Hello . Can anybody advise me about the following please . I am a Brit who wants to drive my Cyprus registered ( South not North ) car through Turkey and on to UK . A friend of mine did this last year ( 2016 ) and passed through heading to UK with no problems . When he came back in September , he was advised that a new law had come into effect after the attempted coup that a car could only be driven by a driver of the same nationality as the cars country of registration . So , a Brit like me could not drive a Cyprus registered vehicle through Turkey . Is this the case ?? Thanks in

  18. Am I right in thinking it is 110kmph for a car? I read conflicting info - Wikipedia says 110km other sources say that is so only if carriageways are separated by a metal barrier. What about the thousands of kms of new-ish inter city dual carriageways that only have a very dangerous looking v-shaped concrete rain gully in the middle?

  21. Hi There, We are taking part in a charity drive from London to Mongolia and have been involved in a pretty bad crash just out of Gallipoli. All three of us are ok but the car got hit on the side by a bus going 100+kph and we are pretty sure it is totaled. We are all from Australia and the car is registered in the UK. I guess we are just seeking suggestions or assistance regarding import taxes etc if the car is not drivable otherwise ways in which we can get it out of the country as to avoid paying hefty import taxes? Also, we bought insurance on the boarder but we are not sure if it is compre
