    Airport Car Rental

    Pick up your rental car right at Istanbul Airport! Get to know Istanbul’s past—visit the world-famous Hagia Sophia and historical sites like the Theodosian Walls of Constantinople. And make sure to drive over Bosphorus Bridge. You’ll be traveling between two continents, Europe and Asia!

    If you need a break from all the history, enjoy Istanbul at a slower pace by driving your rental through its older neighborhoods. Each has a history and character of its own. Stop at coffee shops and restaurants, sample local favorites like balik ekmek or kumpir, try some lokum, and don’t forget the delicious street food. When you’re ready for the hustle and bustle again, enjoy an unforgettable shopping experience at one of Istanbul’s markets or bazaars, all located in the Old City peninsula.

    Istanbul is magnificent, but Turkey has even more to offer.

    Using a car in Istanbul can be convenient if used after rush hours. We planned this carefully (early leave and late arrivals, just to avoid traffic).
