How do I organise rental car drop off at Cirali hotel?

We're visiting Turkey in July/August and I want to pick up a rental car at Izmir airport and drop it off in Cirali 9 days later. We will then be going on to Antalya airport, but I want to take advantage of a taxi transfer from our accommodation, rather than drive to the airport myself. I usually book car hire through the large, well-known companies, but these all seem to be very restrictive about their drop-off points. Can anyone help with a solution?

I think you'd be better off driving to Antalya airport for the car drop off. It's a pretty easy drive, main road all the way (dual carriageway D400 all the way through Antalya).

Thank you for your reply. I will probably do as you suggest and drive to Antalya.

most companies will have a costly drop off fee and especially if you are handing over the car at a small location such as cirali I would also just drop of the car at the antalya airport and its much easier.

you should try these companies and also look a the bigger ones such as avis, hertz, budget, national, and Europcar as they would have offices in both Izmir and Antalya

This car agency offers the cheapest prices online

Thank you. Is the drive to across the city straightforward and not too stressful? We'll be travelling in the middle of the day.

It might be a bit busy, but you stay on the D400 all the way from Cirali to the airport. Probably signposted "Havalimani" (Airport) in Antalya. I recommend having a good look at a map (which you'll have anyway, I guess).

P.S. The GeoCenter Turkey map is the one to have - amazon.co.uk/Turkey-GeoCenter-Euro-Map-Maps/…

follow this link for google maps

http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=%C3%87%C4%B1ral%C4%B1,+Kemer&daddr=Antalya+Airport,+Muratpa%C5%9Fa,+Havaalan%C4%B1-Lara+Yolu,+Antalya&hl=tr&ie=UTF8&sll=36.88414,30.70563&sspn=0.311404,0.676346&geocode=FZawKwIdMhvRASEJAoT2y1OKfw%3BFQpTMwIdtjrWASkhOlRYd4PDFDHCbaNyFbdNJA&oq=Antalya+airport+hav&gl=tr&mra=ls&t=m&z=10

once you reach Antalya take the by pass road of Gazi Blvd. and follow the airplane signs..they arfe blue with a picture of a plane.. Havaalanı-Lara Yolu, Antalya

you can also go through the city but you will run into more traffic..copy and past the link above..its really easy and well signed.

then you are in cirali as your hotel or pansiyon owner to map you out the road.
