What’s the cheapest way to travel in Turkey? Bus, rental car, train or plane?
These estimates are in Turkish Liras. (Exchange rates).
*CAR: Fuel only! (@12 km/TL6/liter of unleaded 95-octane gasoline). Add highway tolls (if any), daily rental and return charges.
‡TRAIN: Express train seat in the best train on the route; sleeping car/couchette charges are not included.
‡‡Istanbul-Ephesus fare includes İDO fast ferry Istanbul-Bandırma, TCDD trains Bandırma-İzmir and İzmir-Selçuk.
†PLANE: One-way coach fare to nearest airport, tickets bought in Turkey or through a Turkish travel agency. Airfares vary greatly according to season, demand, promotions, etc. The fares given are guidelines only. Add ground transport costs (which can be considerable).
Lower fares are usually for tickets bought well in advance on Anadolu Jet, Onur Air, Pegasus Airlines, Sun Express, etc. Higher fares are for the last seats available in times of high demand. Turkish Airlines tickets tend to be somewhat more expensive, for higher-quality service.
