Izmir to Bodrum

I have family members flying into Izmir airport at the end of March. They need to get to Bodrum. I have searched for flights but it seems there are no direct flights from Izmir to Bodrum. Have I missed something or can anyone tell me if there is?

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

It's only about 3- 3,1/2 hour drive so I doubt there are flights to Bodrum.
You could try a bus company.

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

As far as I know there are no flights from Izmir to Bodrum as it's only about 250km away. I agree with Charlotte about the bus.

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

One family member is a bad traveller. After a four hour flight she will get travel sick on a 3.5 hour bus journey. I'm thinking maybe an overnight in a hotel in Izmir and then travel down to Bodrum the next day. Thanks for your replies.

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

Best bet is probably a taxi to the main bus depot - but make sure it's the one for Bodrum.

The alternative seems to be a local bus from the airport to the bus company office then a bus to the bus depot then a big bus direct to Bodrum, a bit of a faff but plenty of people want to help.

Depending on times you could get a train direct from the airport to Selcuk then a bus to Bodrum

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

Some local car hire companies do private transfers from Izmir to bodrum. Not sure of costs but maybe worth it instead of paying for a hotel

if they fly to Istanbul they can get flights to bodrum. and if they did want a hotel in Izmir for the night I would recommend hotel orty right next to the airport. we stay there if we arrive late.

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

A taxi to the bus station from Izmir airport will costa fortune and is in the wrong direction. I would take a taxi to Selcuk and pick up a bus from there. if I was saying overnight I would do it in Selcuk rather than Izmir. The airport is on the selcuk/Bodrum side of town. Possibly take in Ephesus in the morning before heading out to Bodrum. Car rental is another option.

Re: Izmir to Bodrum

Ibrhim Abi which bus station are you travelling from to Izmir Airport?

Selcuk is approx. 50 miles from Izmir, now that would be an expensive journey but I agree an overnight in Selcuk is a good idea but do it by train if the times are right

I was referring to Izmir one. I remember the last time I did that trip by taxi it cost me double the amount for the taxi than I paid for the bus from Izmir to Bodrum. In those days any taxi from Izmir airport was allowed to set the meter for the night rate at any time of day. I used to get a taxi to the nearest Migros, get out and then get another taxi at the day rate to my final destination.
