Cost-effective Istanbul Airport transfers
Ease, comfort and affordability are some of the words you want to hear when searching for an Istanbul Airport transfer to your hotel in the city centre. Complicated transport, heavy luggage and long queues are not. That’s why you should opt for taking a taxi from Istanbul Airport and enjoy a direct ride to your hotel, or better yet, choose a reliable and comfortable service by pre-booking a private transfer from the airport.
As soon as you get off the plane, you will see your friendly Welcome driver waiting for you just outside of the arrivals gate, holding up a sign with your name on it. Even if your flight gets in early or is delayed, your driver will be right on time, as all of our Istanbul Airport taxi drivers receive live updates of your plane’s arrival time.
After introductions, your English-speaking driver will help you with your luggage to your pre-selected vehicle, so you can begin the transfer from Istanbul Airport in style. During the journey, your knowledgeable driver will answer any questions you may have about the city and let you know about some hidden gems that you won’t want to miss. All that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and take in the Turkish scenery.

Directions for your Istanbul Airport taxi
Istanbul Airport is the newest super airport in Istanbul. It took over all flight paths from Ataturk Airport and now functions as the major flight hub for travellers entering the Middle East and Asia. It is located around 44km from the centre of Istanbul. To get there, your Istanbul Airport taxi driver will take the main highway D020, staying in the right-hand lane until they take the ramp to F.S.M. Köprüsü/Kadıköy/Ankara. Your driver will then merge back onto Highway E80. They will then take the exit toward Kağıthane/Sütlüce, cross the river and Imrahor Cd, and continue onto Beşiktaş-Kağıthane Tüneli. This will lead you into the Taksim area, where your driver will use the local roads to take you to your hotel.
It can be challenging to cut through the noise online and find a good place to stay in the city, so we checked the best hotels smack-bang in the middle of Istanbul to help you plan the perfect trip close to everything you may want to explore. If you’re looking for a luxury stay, travellers are raving about White House Hotel Istanbul, and Istasyon Hotel ranks high as a budget-friendly option.

The cost of an Istanbul Airport taxi
There are no set fares when taking a regular taxi in Istanbul. Instead, your journey will be calculated using a taximeter based on the distance travelled. A local taxi from Istanbul Airport to the city centre will cost you around €30 (TRY 640) during the day and €35 (TRY 747) at night. Alternatively, the journey from the airport to other popular areas such as Taksim, will cost you around €41 (TRY 877). However, you could end up paying more due to the intense traffic in Istanbul and potential extra charges for things such as waiting time and luggage. The only way to have the peace of mind of a flat-rate fee is to book a private Istanbul Airport transfer in advance.
