Essence is a car rental company that operates in the country of Turkey. It has locations in the country’s capital, Ankara, as well as in the Mediterranean coastal hotspots of Antalya, Bodrum, and Izmir. It also has locations in Istanbul, the largest city in the country, serving both major airports Sabiha Gokcen and IST.

The company has won our Excellent Service Award at Dalaman International Airport, Kayseri International Airport, and Trabzon Airport due to the high ratings our customers have given them in those locations. 

Essence, like a lot of rental companies in Turkey, doesn’t accept debit cards, so you’ll have to have a credit card to leave the deposit with in order to rent from them. With many locations in the country, though, Essence is a great choice if you plan on picking up a vehicle in one city and dropping it off in another, which is a great way to see more of the lovely country with the time you have.
