Larger Taxis

I will be travelling to Istanbul in a few months and will need a taxi for a family of 4 (probably 6 pieces of luggage) from Atatürk Airport to Sultanahmet. Do you think the average sized taxi will work for us? If not, is there a way of reserving a larger taxi?

Thanks in advance!

Waverly S, welcome to Istanbul.

There are no larger taxis. You should be prbooking a private transfer to your hotel. Many forum members have used the firm "efenditravel.com/Istanbul-Airport-Transfers-…" for 25 Euros. However you should also ask your hotel if they provide a free transfer.

good luck,

Well Enigma, there are lots of Fiat Doplos that can take the persons and the luggage. should not have to wait long at airport for such a taxi.

OK, Roald, if they can carry 4 people and six pieces of luggage, then sure why not?

We will be 4 adults and 3 large suitcases. What is the current advice on availability of larger taxis at Ataturk?

I have made an online enquiry with Efendi Travel for a private transfer but have probably left it a bit late as we will be taking off early tomorrow morning.

Thanks

Carhirer, try a larger taxi at the Ataturk Airport.
