Re: toll charges

There are Post Office (PTT) kiosks at the tolls now where you can buy a HGS card. From memory they charge about 5TL for the card then the rest you put on it is credit.

Re: toll charges

I think that is the old way of doing it. I had to take my car docs to a main PTT and they issued a windscreen sticker. It cost about 35TL which included cost of paperwork and credit to use on the motorway. As you approach the toll booths, an automatic windscreen sticker reader, checks the sticker for credit. When you exit the motorway, the same thing happens and your credit is reduced automatically.

Re: toll charges

Depends where you are heading for, I am guessing down the coast road where the only toll charges, to my knowledge, are around Izmir. These sections of road are easily avoidable if you set your satnav to 'no toll roads'.

We did this a few years back and there is a blog here if you are interested

You need to start at the bottom to get it in the right order.
