For anyone interested in car hire in Turkey, most car hire companies require that drivers are at least 21 years old and have held their licence for a minimum of two years. Some companies will require that drivers are older, or they may charge a surplus for anyone under 25. If your licence isn’t in English, then you’ll need to show an international driving permit. A passport and credit card are also required for any car hire in Turkey.
For travellers using car hire in Turkey, you’ll drive on the right-hand side of the road. All passengers and the driver must wear a seatbelt at all times. If there are any children in your hire car in Turkey, they must travel in the back seat if they’re under 10. Additionally, any child under 150 cm and/or who weighs less than 35 kg must sit in the correct car seat for their height/weight. It’s best to check directly with your car hire company whether they can provide these. Speed limits in Turkey are 50 kph (31 mph) in built-up areas, going up to 90 kph (56 mph) on open roads and 120 kph (75 mph) on motorways. Use of phones is prohibited (unless it’s using a hands-free device), and driving under the influence of alcohol is also not allowed. If you’re thinking of using your car hire to travel around Turkey, note that there are seven Turkish toll motorways, so it’s good to keep change with you to pay for these.
For travellers who would like to use car hire in Turkey, your choice of car hire will depend entirely on your needs, the passengers in your car and where you plan to travel. All types of car hire are on offer, including luxury car hire in Turkey, passenger van hire and economy car hire. Car hire locations in Turkey are situated across the country, from the airports to most cities, and all the major companies such as Sixt, Europcar and Avis have a presence here, in addition to local players. For inner-city driving, a smaller, cheap car hire in Turkey may be preferable; if you’re planning to travel around the country, particularly to some of the mountainous areas in southeastern Anatolia, you may prefer to hire an SUV or four by four. Road conditions in Turkey are mixed – you’ll find everything from major high-standard motorways to single-lane country roads.
