Will be back in Turkey in June and this time we want to hire a car and get out and about a bit more.
I have been reading reviews on here and the Turkish Living Forum to find out recommendations and prices etc.
Mehmet @ Pandora Car Hire/Dalaman Car Hire has been recommended a few times on another forum and I have had a look at his site.
I know that I will have to make the ultimate decision but I would appreciate any views on the following;
1) I am used to driving a Ford Focus and to make life easier I was going to opt for that. However, this seems much more expensive than the other choices and I am not sure that I can justify the difference in cost. E.G, For 17 days the Focus works out at £544 (all in) compared to £272 for a Fiat Albea or a Renault Clio. However, I have no idea what a Fiat Albea is and how straight forward it is/comfortable to drive. We will be going up and down the coast - particularly in our second week when we will leaving our base in Dalyan to a base in Patara.
2)Anyone on here used Pandora Car Hire or have any other first class recommendations? The reason that I may appear overly cautious with this is that we had a very bad experience a number of years ago with a car hire company in Marmaris which has put me off ever since.
What are the roads like to drive between Dalyan and Patara/Kalkin/Kas? Until our bad experience I was quite comfortable driving around - I have driven from Marmaris to Datca for example - and I really want to get my confidence back and be able to have more freedom to roam.
Any thoughts appreciated.
