Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport! Then drive to the city to start exploring. Istanbul’s historic Old City, Sultanahmet, is filled with beautiful Byzantine and Ottoman architecture; Galata, with all its bars and restaurants, is the hippest place in town; and Bosphorus, situated on the European bank of the Bosphorus Strait, has beautiful gardens, palaces, and bohemian neighborhoods like Besiktas.

Visit Istanbul’s mosques and basilicas, and make sure you simply walk the city streets to get a feel for local life. Check out the small markets, the hamams (Turkish baths), and nargile (water pipe) cafés, too. When you’re ready for a break from the city, take your rental to the port and hop on a ferry to Princes’ Islands where you’ll find pine gardens, wooden mansions, and a very calm, relaxed atmosphere.

Istanbul’s a fascinating destination, but with a longer term car rental you can explore even more. You can drive along the Black Sea coast, head to beautiful Northeast Turkey to explore its lakes and mountains, or go to neighboring Bulgaria and other Balkan countries. Depending on your car provider, you may even be able to pick up your rental car at Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport and drop it off in a different location. Start planning your holidays today!
