Turkey Car Rental Mini Guide

Turkey welcomes international travellers in their droves to its sandy beach resorts and cosmopolitan cities. Renting a car and driving in Turkey is incredibly popular, evident by the large number of car rental companies who operate here.

All you need to drive a rental car legally in Turkey is your full domestic licence, passport and a credit card. We strongly recommend obtaining an International Driving Permit (1949) as whilst not all car rental companies will request one, it is a legal requirement.
