Turkey driving tips

Driving etiquette
Turkish drivers are known to be unpredictable. Always expect the unexpected. Driving defensively is key, particularly in cities.

Drinking and driving
The blood alcohol limit in Turkey is zero, so there can be absolutely none in your system while driving.

As Turkey improves its roads, more and more tolls are popping up. Your car must have an electronic sticker which registers your use of the toll road. Enquire about whether your rental company provides one, as you cannot pay toll roads by cash or card.

Road signs are in Turkish, so knowing a few common terms can be helpful for navigation.

Çıkış – exit
Girilmez – no entry
Tekyön – one way
