Bodrum to Izmir by bus

A friend is travelling to Izmir airport on the 28th December, his flight is at 10.20, we wondered if it would be best to stay in Izmir overnight....has anyone done the journey from Bodrum by bus, if so can you suggest which bus company to use and any hotels in Izmir to stay...thanks

Re: Bodrum to Izmir by bus

hi i did this trip a couple of times last winter, i found it easyer staying in izmir, the hotel that i stayed at was the Alican and it was very handy, they even came to the airport and picked me up in a nice fancy car lol and it was really cheap. It is right around the corner from the main bus office and they have a small bus from there to the bigger bus station . the website for the hotel is www.alicanotel.com hope this helps. just to let ur friend know also that when we got to the hotel one of the boys at the hotel showed us where to book the bus and we did it that night for the next day as there is a few go every day

Hi pebble
The thread is Bodrum to Izmir not vice versa.

Pebble.
From the question i think they are already in Bodrum and are asking whether to stay in Bodrum overnight or set off early in the morning for Izmir

Re: Bodrum to Izmir by bus

Let's see now: the flight is at 10:20, they should get there 2 hours before flight if its an intl flight, otherwise 1 hour, so I am assuming its intl flight, at that time of the morning there is going to be heavy rush hour traffic, but hey, if they are coming from bodrum, you can by pass the city and just take the gaziemir exit/../......oh wait...they're on the bus, it will take at least 2 hours from the bus station to the airport, because of the above mentioned traffic jam. so that would be what? they need to arrive at the bus station by 6 am, so in order to get to the bus station by 6 am they need to take a bus from bodrum around 2 am. I think that the last bus from bodrum is at 1 am, which would be an ideal time to board the bus, that way they wouldnt be stressing about any delays.
KARADEVECI have a good service from bodrum to izmir, that is who I always use. And, i think that their last bus out of bodrum to izmir is at 1:00, but please check, you can call the garage and they will put you thru to the karadeveci office, or give you the number.
you can sleep thru 4 hour ride. the roads are not lit, and you really dont want to see how they are driving through the bafa lake mountains. its somewhat scary in daytime, in nighttime it must be a nightmare, but never mind......

so the choice is going at midnight and traveling all night, or going the day before and overnighting in izmir....
