Paul

I was wondering how much petrol was - though I am sure when my parents do this drive in July the petrol costs will have rocketed!

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Hi,the route is very easy,the best way i found was to use the RAC website and plot the route from Dover to Izmir and it will give you a detailed route plus a map so you can see exactly which way its sending you,as in my description of the drive make sure you have your green card if you venture through any non eu country or they will charge you.

Apart from that i would highly recommend driving it as the roads are very good and its very easy to do as long as you arent the type who gets lost in multi storey car parks.

Hi Paul

Great post, I take my hat off, well done. My son would love to drive from Ireland sometime so I must show him your trip details. His main concern was Bulgaria but you had no problems there. He thought it might be better to do the Italy to Izmir route. I would get lost in the car park. Congrats again.

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Well done you! My husband is talking about taking our car out next year with the intention to leave it there for us and family to use when we visit. Any ideas of car things we would need to do in order to keep it in turkey? Car insurance, road tax, MOT all come to mind, as well as servicing and repairs, but don't know if Turkey has same requirements. Would probably still be cheaper than hiring, but don't know if worth the hassle.

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Dingbats I am sure someone will come along who knows more than I but I understood that you can only take your car into and out of Turkey a maximum of twice with a maximum stay of six months each time. I understand that this is monitored by your car details being entered into your passport at the point of entry into Turkey..

Your plans sound similar to ours as this was something we considered doing next year with a view to leaving a car at our Turkey address. I would be so pleased if someone could tell me that my understanding is wrong.

I have also looked at the cost of purchasing a second hand car in Turkey and they appear to be at least a third to half more expensive than in the Uk. I think to own a car in Turkey you must also take a Turkish driving test? again I amsure someone will provide the answer.

Big respect to Dalid 69- a great road trip

Basil's Mum you have it right, except you don't have to take a Turkish driving test to own a car in Turkey.

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Looks like plan to leave car in Turkey is a non starter then! But still might be an option for loading it up and taking stuff out when we furnish our new apt. Will think about that one - will depend how petrol prices are next year too!
