Dalyan Boat Ko-op tried to rip me off today

I always pay one way to the beach (I walk to the other end and get the Dolmus back).
Today they said I couldn't pay one way. It is a journey I have made hundreds of times so I thought they were joking. They weren't. I clarified that I would not be returning by boat, but they insisted I had to pay a return fair. He said it was to cover the boat fuel cost. In effect they were trying to make me pay double the fare.

Is this a new rip off policy or was he just trying to scam me.?

Needless to say, I got up and got off the boat and caught the bus to the beach instead.

Too many boats, they should have capped the licences so that a good living could be made but be it greed or whatever they issued too many in my opinion.

Re: Dalyan Boat Ko-op tried to rip me off today

They were letting you buy a one way ticket last week when I was there so this is a new rule.
I wonder if it is connected to Dalyan being very quiet for this time of year, well it was when I was there, they could be trying to increase income to normal levels for this time of year.

Re: Dalyan Boat Ko-op tried to rip me off today

So the boat man actually lost more revenue in real terms .
How can he think they will fill up the boat if the travel is inflexible like that ?
Very short term that policy I would think ,the dolmus will be laughing their heads off taking more fares .

I noticed from a recent travel magazine page was that north and south cyprus were predicting 30% down on booking bits year !turkey was predicting -20% in numbers with Greece and the islands to be up around 15% .....the reason in the main was proximity to Syria !sadly as it sounds

Re: Dalyan Boat Ko-op tried to rip me off today

Maybe Mugla Buyukshehir Belidiye needs to bring in a Belidiye boat in competition to the Ko-op - as it did with the Dalyan-Ortaca dolmus service and prices immediately dropped to a more realistic rate...especially good for the Turks travelling to work.
The Dalyan Boat ko-op prices have always been way higher than their equivalent Koycegiz colleagues doing the same trips but the reverse route!

Re: Dalyan Boat Ko-op tried to rip me off today

Wonder what they'll charge if you leave the beach in the afternoon asking for a one way ticket? Bring you back later?
