Istanbul Car HireIstanbul is the largest city in Turkey and fifth largest city proper in the world with a population of 12.6 million. Istanbul is also a megacity, as well as the cultural and financial centre of Turkey. The city covers 39 districts of the Istanbul province. It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbour known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) sides of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents.

In its long history, Istanbul has served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330-395), the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395-1204 and 1261-1453), the Latin Empire (1204-1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453-1922). The city was chosen as joint European Capital of Culture for 2010. The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.

Istanbul has two international airports: The larger one is the Ataturk International Airport located in the YeÅŸilkoy district on the European side, about 24 kilometres (15 mi) west from the city center. When it was first built, the airport was situated at the western edge of the metropolitan area but now lies within the city bounds. The smaller one is the Sabiha Gokcen International Airport located in the Kurtkoy district on the Asian side, close to the Istanbul Park GP Racing Circuit. It is situated approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of the Asian side and 45 kilometres (28 mi) east of the European city center. offers efficient and reliable car hire service in Istanbul.

Excellent Reasons to Choose Turkey for a Road Trip Holiday

Turkey is an exotic country that has cleverly fused influences from Western and Eastern cultures to create a unique identity. Impossible to describe in one sentence, it has a wealth of distinctive experiences for road trip enthusiasts and in recent years, the government has invested a vast amount of money in improving road infrastructure and driving conditions.

Two of the main reasons people do not want to drive in Turkey include bad driving by locals and high petrol prices however both of these myths can be debunked. While petrol prices are expensive, there is the option to hire a diesel car and not all Turkish drivers are impatient or stupid. On the roads of many coastal resorts, driving is a leisurely pastime for Turks who prefer a slow pace to admire the scenery, instead of rushing from A to B. Like anywhere in the world, it is the big major cities like Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara that should be avoided by newcomers who want to drive in the country. This leaves thousands of other destinations to choose.

Four Reasons to Pick Turkey for a Driving Holiday

  1. As the former home of many civilizations throughout history, there are many historical attractions to visit, from the well-known Roman city of Ephesus to the quirky Sumela monastery in the Northeast. An entire walking trek has been set up to promote historical attractions on the Mediterranean coast. It is called the Lycian way however, thanks to the 2000 kilometre D400 route running along the route, history enthusiasts can easily visit all major sites within a two to three week period.
  2. Turkish people are extremely friendly and welcoming to strangers. The most exciting part of a road trip is meeting the locals, trying the regional cuisine and learning about secret places that never appear in the guidebooks.
  3. The Aegean and Mediterranean coast have amazing beach resorts with scenic views and mystical places such as the hippie influenced valley of butterflies, the ruins and beaches of Phaselis, the wind surfing resort of Alacati and the boat building village of Bozburun.
  4. The country provides great amenities for everyone, from families to couples to groups of friends. In most places, hotels are abundant and unless you veer off the beaten track, it is certain that you will find someone who speaks English. Restaurants vary in choice from your five star luxuries frequented by the rich and famous, to your basic roadside cafes serving traditional food. Petrol stations also exist on most main roads and the service is usually impeccable

My pleasant memorable trip with Udrive.

Superior quality cars

I rented from Udrive in Istanbul this summer in June. The car ended up being provided by Europcar and it was clean and only had 650km on the clock. The rental desk staff spoke good English and were polite and helpful. The price was affordable given the excellent car, whih was also diesel even though I'd only paid for petrol. 

I saw some of the much older cars being rented by less known car rental companies at Istanbul airport and was very pleased I had gone with a good company. Thanks Udrive.
