    Awesome service for IST
    I love this service. They are the best and only taxi service I have used. Always there at airport (IST) to pick me up; return to airport is equally good. Always early with great drivers. This is my go-to service always! Highly recommend this service!

    Best transfer service to IST airport
    I called this company after 9pm to get a car for the next morning. Sinan, the manager, answered the phone, spoke perfect English and was able to get a nice Mercedes minivan to us right on time the next morning at 10am. The car was clean, the driver helpful and polite. And I was able to pay by credit card on a secure link straight away! I would totally use them again and recommend them 100%! Great service and for a VERY reasonable price!

    My go-to transfer company in Istanbul
    I don't normally write reviews unless it's a very good or very bad experience. For Fat Taxi I feel obliged. I usually use Fat Taxi to get to my house from either of the Istanbul airports. Greeting is always with a huge smile and welcome. Great guys, amazing vans, outstanding experience overall. Prices are perfect as well. I haven't been using any other service since 3 years and it's the only company I recommend to my friends arriving at Istanbul. Keep it up guys!

    Amazing experience
    Every tourist feels uneasy when they come to another country. However, since their staff speaks English, they never made us feel uneasy. and we did not hesitate until the moment we went to the hotel. Because hotels that pay attention to guest satisfaction pay attention to the high quality of their services from the airport to the hotel. and this company really made us feel very comfortable. we can be sure i will use this transfer company again

    Reliable
    The hotel booked the transport. The day before my arrival the representative contacted my via Whatsapp and gave me all the details where and how to meet the driver. Finding the spot on the airport was easy but finding the driver was a bit chaotic but that's the airport system, I am afraid, as I gathered. I had the same driver both ways, Burat who is very polite and a very safe driver which is a big plus in Istanbul and the highways around. I had a bottle of water and free wifi, and a safe drive. It was very considerate to give me the same driver for the departure as well. I was pleased with the service and I can recommend it.

We had to move our booking twice because our flight kept getting cancelled due to weather conditions. FatTaxi was kind enough to reschedule both times and provided excellent customer service. This was not the case in the past with other service providers we have used.

This is a Highly, Highly, Highly recommended airport transfer service in Istanbul. This was my first experience with FatTaxi and believe me I am more than happy. Sinan, the guy who looked for my booking supported us during whole experience and I must say what a great customer experience he provided. He was in touch throughout the experience and even when we were going to the airport.

The driver was such a gentleman, he helped us with our luggage on the Airport to shift it on trolly as we were with kids.

I must say everyone must take this airport transfer. For families it is the best service. Free drinks during the transfer, Luxury Van and free wifi.

I would rate his service 10/10.

Thanks Sinan and FatTaxi for the great experience.

This is my first one-star review on Tripadvisor... and it's well deserved almost everything went wrong. So much so, that I feel obligated to warn my fellow travelers. In fact, the best and only positive part of the experience was that I received a full refund without much fuss.
We booked a roundtrip transfer from IST to the Taksim area.
I should have been suspicious when I still hadn't received any detailed instructions regarding where to meet the driver on the day before departure... but a gentleman by the name of Sinan responded when I contacted Fat Taxi via the chat feature on their website and indicated that I should go to door 13 and look for the "SBL" sign to meet the driver upon arrival at IST. And so the adventure begins. Here's a list of what went wrong:
1) We easily found the door and sign... but nobody was there. A man who was standing by another sign simply motioned us to to come around and wait nearby. About 5-10 minutes later, a man came by and asked if my name was XYZ. I said no. He seemed incredulous and asked again (no, I'm still not XYZ). He then asked for my name... and seemed to have no record of my (prepaid!) booking. He told me to wait and walked away. Another five minutes later, he returned and simply told me to wait. He eventually guided us and another group of travelers to the departure level where we boarded a van.
2) Nobody was wearing a mask. Given the hiccups we experienced upon arrival, the van driver handed me his cell phone to speak to Sinan who seems to be in charge. Sinan was apologetic and subsequently instructed the driver to put on a mask. I understand that local regulations may not require masks. But when you're in the business of shuttling people from all over the world in a small confined space around all day, it seems like wearing a mask is just the right and courteous thing to do.
3) Our destination was the Hilton Istanbul Bosphorus. Our driver intended to drop us off at the Hilton Bomonti (yes, they're both Hilton hotels in Istanbul, but no, they're not the same). Thankfully, I realized the mistake before we got off, and the driver contacted Sinan again to get confirmation about our correct destination. I then received more messages from Sinan who apologized profusely, said we were "unlucky" and promised things would be much better and seamless for our return transfer to the airport the next day.
4) So, our transfer from the hotel to IST was scheduled for 11:15 the next day. We were downstairs ten minutes early, and I messaged Sinan to advise him accordingly. He did not respond. 11:15 came and went. No van, no response from Sinan. I called Sinan on WhatsApp at around 11:20, and he said he'd check. He texted some 5-7 minutes later, saying that he couldn't reach the driver. He asked us to wait while he tried to locate another driver and arrange for the transfer. At this point--and keeping in mind that I had a flight to catch--I had lost faith in both Sinan and Fat Taxi and decided to cut my losses. I grabbed an ordinary taxi. About 25-30 minutes after our scheduled pickup time, Sinan texted again, saying that the van was now at the hotel.
So, here's the deal: When you run a transfer company, you literally do three things--you pick people up, drive them safely, and drop them off at to the desired location. Fat Taxi pretty much failed across the board. Hence why, I urge everyone to think carefully whether they want to book with Fat Taxi (in fact, I recommend that you just take a regular taxi. They're dirt cheap and will get you where you need to go without much fuss).
The only good thing I can say about my experience is that Sinan was apologetic, and he refunded me right away. Then again, that's not what you're looking for when you book an airport transfer, right?

Aydin was our driver and he was very patient when transporting a family of 7 to Esenyurt and then back to Taksim considering traffic and distance. Highly recommend!
