Flying to Turkey

There are many airline companies flying very frequently to Turkey. The airfares are the highest during the summer season (May to September) and during Easter week. However, they drop significantly during the “shoulder season”, which is April and October.
Majority of the airline companies offer cheaper prices from their websites. As well as budget airlines, companies such as Turkish Airlines also offer cheaper rates online. You can either purchase your charter flight separately or as a package holiday, which is a cheaper option. If you will use a Star Alliance member company, such as Turkish Airlines or Lufthansa, you can purchase the ticket with your frequent flyer miles. From Europe to Turkey, they are normally between 20,000 and 30,000 miles.

You can fly direct from Europe, America and Middle East. In UK, the majority of the direct flights all around the year are from London Gatwick, Heathrow, Birmingham and Manchester. During summer months, you can also use regional airports such as Edinburgh, Belfast, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow and East Midlands.
Majority of the direct flights are to Istanbul , Izmir , Bodrum , Dalaman and Antalya .

By Rail

Travelling by train is slow and expensive. The best route that you can use is to get on the Eurostar from London Waterloo to Brussels, then an overnight train to Vienna, followed by Euro-City train to Budapest and finally a two-day train to Istanbul. In total, it takes around four days and costs over £350.

By Car and Ferry

You can drive to Turkey from Europe in four days through France, Italy and Greece. You can also get into a ferry from Ancona or Brindisi in Italy which both takes you to Cesme, near Izmir. Two companies that we advice are Marmara Lines and MedEurope-anSeaways (Mesline). Marmara Lines offer services from late March to end of October from Brindisi. Mesline operate between June and September from Brindisi.
