    I intend to come to Turkey next month. I'll arrive at Ataturk international airport and I wanna travel to Izmir. Which route would be the cheapest & somehow convenient ?

    Hello Hesham,

    You have 3 options to go to Izmir from Istanbul.

    The first one which is the cheapest and more convenient is taking a Bus from Otogar (BUS TERMINAL) which ll cost u around 45-60 Turkish Lira , and takes 8-10 hours. U had better to take a bus at night so u ll be in izmir by morning.

    Second option is the airplane. There are some airlines flying between Istanbul-Izmir , Turkish Airlines-Pegasus-Onur Air-Sun Express. It costs approxiametely 80-100 Turkish Lira.

    The last option which i recommend is renting a car from an international rental cars in istanbul and leave it in their izmir office after driving to there.It will cost u more since petrol price in Turkey is the most expensive in the world, but it will worth to see a lot of sightseeing places on the way.

    Good luck ,

    Thank You very much Selim

    I heard also about a multi-transportation route. that's to go from Istanbul to Bursa via a ferry & then take a bus from Bursa to Izmir.

    Do you think it's good for a foreigner or I might get fraud ?

    Just take the bus. If you use ferry and then take bus it will gonna cost you more and it will also take more of your time.
