Which is the best time for Turkey vacation?
This actually depends on the purpose of the vacation and the places you want to visit in Turkey. But, Turkey experiences intense tourism mobility mostly between April – December months. It doesn’t mean that only these 8 months are the beautiful periods for Turkey vacation. For instance, regions like Istanbul and Cappadocia offer their visitors a different kind of beauty in each month. Keep in your mind that in low season, prices are lower as well when compared to the peak seasons.
What is the time difference?
Turkey is on GMT + 2 (daylight saving = GMT +3 and operates between late March to late September). This means generally that Turkey is 1 hour ahead of European and 2 hours ahead of the UK standard times. Still it is a good idea to check the local time when you arrive in Turkey and adjust your watch accordingly.

How difficult to drive a car in Turkey?
In the metropolises, especially in Istanbul, driving a car is very troubled. So, we don’t advise you to drive a car certainly. Generally, roads between cities are more comfortable when compared to urban roads. Unfortunately, when we consider the high rate and density of road traffic accidents, Turkey is not highly recommended country for renting or driving car.
