Car Hire - June 2010

Hi,

My family and I will be visting Gocek in June 2010 and are looking for recommendations for car hire.

We would like to arrange for a transfer from Dalaman airport and have the car delivered to our villa in Gocek later in the week.

We would also like to arrange the hire of a childrens car seat and a GPS unit.

Also, does anyone have an idea what a Fiat Albea is and if it suitable for 2 adults and 3 children age 9, 7 & 3.

Thanks

I have always used Metro Car rental, based in Dalaman:

and I believe that regular poster Adana also uses them.

They can arrange a transfer for you and then deliver your car to Göcek later.

Failing that, try this firm:

A Fiat Albea is the Turkish-built version of a Fiat Palio. I hate them!

Seriously, I have used several and always find them under-powered when compared to other cars of their size; I'd far prefer to rent a Renault Clio or a Hyundai Accent.

Children's car seats will be compulsory in Turkey effective 1.6.2010, I know that Metro supply them.

As for a GPS, I am not sure if they are worth the bother. I know that my sister rented one last year, I'll ask her about it.

Yes. Another recommendation for Metro Car Rental from me too.

I have used them several times and been very pleased with their cars and their service.

The wonders of modern communication are such that I already have my sister's comments on a GPS and I quote:

"Don't bother with GPS as mapping no good"

Given that her husband is an expert on satellite positioning (he lays submarine cables and positions rigs), I would take her advice.
