As with any city, you do expect a higher level of transport. Not many are people prepared for a megacity – Istanbul. Here the five or even 8-lane roads can quickly turn into narrow roads with a tram track. The traffic is constant and sometimes noisy. Turkish drivers like to use the horn a lot, but we do ask your drivers not to!
The system of inter-sections and turn-offs can seem confusing, but there is a pattern, and lots of work has gone into making Istanbul a less congested city. Unfortunately, no-one can guarantee when road works may start in an area. Still, the cars we use carry the latest technology for this reason. Where ever possible, the drivers will take the shortest routes for transfers & pick-up to and from your consultation, clinic, or hospital visit.
For some, not being in the driving seat is uncomfortable. But be assured you are in safe hands. You will soon enjoy the removal of stress that can accompany driving in a different place, nevermind a megacity like Istanbul. Relax and take in the famous sites of Istanbul, the skyline, the Bosphorus, the mosques from which the call to prayer five times a day echos into every corner of Istanbul.
