About
Airport transfer in Istanbul is a fast-growing sector yet still catching up on the international competition. Fat Taxi was born out of our ambition to welcome travellers upon their arrival to Istanbul and make their journey from/to Istanbul airport and Sabiha Gökçen airport safe, comfortable and with a premium feel. We are a group of friends who felt that airport taxi services should be honest, of premium customer service yet affordable. With years of experience in hospitality, customer service and marketing, and being frequent travellers ourselves, we wanted to create a trusted brand that sets the standards in the industry and make people feel looked after while travelling in a somehow chaotic Turkey.

I decided to get me and my family isolated in my home village after foreseeing that the widespread of the Coronavirus will grow.Luckily, I was able to find a flight from New York to Istanbul but it was almost impossible to find bus tickets from Istanbul to my hometown. Bus tickets and private transportation companies prices were extremely high, taking advantage of the crises. After a little research, I came up to the Fat Taxi where we managed to take a luxury van, comfortable enough for as much as 7 passengers, (we were 4). Because I was with my family, I had to make sure the van was sterilized and disinfected. The crew were well aware of the situation which they explained through the actions they took.
It was great that we had Wi-Fi and some snacks along with some soft drinks because it was a long ride.
As for the price, It was cheaer than taking a bus from the coach station for 4 people which was amazing.
After all, my main satisfaction with the company was that they did not take advantage for this difficult situation and raise their prices like all other companies and continued to serve in this crises with taking necessary precautions. Well done!

Straight after I completed my reservation online the team was extremely attentive and communicative. I was travelling with a young son and any uncertainty can cause anxiety for both of us. My original return flight was cancelled due to weather conditions and thought you'd expect having a nightmare with re-arranging airport transfer, fat taxi was super flexible and understanding of my situation. I would only be able to confirm my replacement return journey a couple of hours before and get fat taxi team reacted in time and were able to arrange my travels at a very short turnaround time. Of course no extra charges were applied which I was super happy about. Truly honest and reliable - which is a true rarity when it comes to airport transfers. Definitely will book them again.

Fat Taxi is an exceptionally reliable, affordable and we'll networked firm that is capable of providing transport support across the country. I particularly liked three aspects - the speed at which the requests are met, the quality of drivers and the safety of travel with families. I travelled with two kids. The founders of the company are directly involved and all guest relations requests are handled by them which was surprising. They went out of my way to help me find a chemist on New year's day when my son fell ill. I am extremely touched by this Turkish hospitality and thank Mr Sinan and his fine team for making our holiday memorable. They are always welcome in our homes!

We ordered a van to take 5 of us from Boyuglu to IST airport at 5am in the morning. Fat Taxi stayed in communication with us and picked us up right on time. They even had internet in the van (that was extremely fast!). The price was very reasonable and we are very happy with the company

My original taxi driver cancelled at the last minute (3 hour before pick-up time).

Being in a foreign country, I got a little panicky and searched online for other providers. I whatsapped the customer service and they replied promptly. The driver also arrived on time (in fact 10 mins before the pick-up time).

Superbly efficient. I don't mind using them again for the ease of mind and comfort.

Fantastic customer service and experience. Super impressed with their hygiene standard - they asked whether I’d like my luggage handled and took extra care about the experience inside the cab making sure they asked for my preference for air conditioning versus open windows for air ventilation etc. Highly recommended for their quality standards and overall professionalism. Top notch service!

The communication is very pleasant and the quality of the service amazed me and also how flexible they are with offering their service. the price is also reasonable.
Overall i'll definitely give 5 stars and use their service again when visiting istanbul

I had a fantastic experience with them on my travels. they have a great easy to use website which i was able to make my bookings on before I traveled. They were in touch with me over the phone when i arrived, the drivers were professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the city. Even a last min change in my plans was accommodated without any hassle. Highly recommended and i am sure i will be a returning customer.

Rented private van with Fat Taxi to Istanbul Airport. The service was amazing! The communication with Sinan was perfect and the driver arrived on time at our Airbnb. The van was super clean and the WiFi was great! I would definitely recommend Fat Taxi to everyone in need of a reliable transportation from and to the airport.

I had a long connection in Istanbul airport, so decided to go to the city with my little daughter, and then back to the airport on the evening. It was the best decision to choose Fat taxi - great service, reasonable price, very good and polite drivers, and great support work of manager via WhatsApp. I am very satisfied!!!
