Rent a car in Istanbul
If you are looking for an easy and cheap trip to Istanbul, we recommend renting a car.
In recent years, with the increase in the number of Iranian travelers to Turkey, car rental from reputable companies that have years of experience and good reputation in their portfolio has increased.
Is it more economical to rent a car in Turkey?
Due to the high price of fuel in Turkey and the high cost of taxi, it has been one of the most expensive parts of the trip to Turkey.
It is a wide city, from its easternmost part in the Asian part to its westernmost part in the European region, you will be traveling for about 3 to 4 hours.
In relatively short routes you have to pay about 80 to 100 liras and add to all this not knowing the language and being caught by hooded drivers who turn you around to get more money. In longer routes, for example from the airport to the hotel, more than 300 Lira will be the cost of the taxi fare. And when shopping in arcades and shopping centers, it will be troublesome to carry the purchased goods and equipment, especially at night
To solve this problem, you can easily choose a suitable car and rent it according to your budget and go wherever you want with your family without any restrictions.
The reliable choice of rent a car or a car rental company in Istanbul

To rent luxury and large cars, at least three years must have passed since the date of issuance of the certificate.
If you plan to rent a car for several people, you must specify it in your contract before handing over the car so that there is no problem later.
Costs related to fines and possible damages, etc., must be insured. Therefore, when renting, you must block a certain amount as a deposit or in Turkish as a deposit on your credit card. This method is called Provizyon in Turkey. For Iranian tourists who do not have a credit card, an amount of 4,000 to 8,000 liras is usually received as a deposit.
To rent a car daily in Turkey, you must pay all or part of the rental fee at the time of rental by cash, credit card, bank transfer or PayPal account.
When receiving and delivering the car, the address and time of receipt and delivery must be specified. During the delivery of the car, a delay of one hour is not included in the fee, but for more than one hour, it is subject to an additional fee.
Ensure the fuel level when taking over the car. If there is excess fuel left in the car when it is delivered, you will not be paid for it.
