"Istanbul Taxi" Istanbul Transportation Tip by travelife

Istanbul Transportation: 525 reviews and 693 photos

Taxi-fare is subject to bergaining. And can be halved the price they ask for at the international bus-stop. Agree on the price beforehand and ask if he knows this place. In my case the chaffeur really didn know well (though I gave him address and he was confident) and he asked few kids inside Sultan ahmet to find out sultan hostel. At the end he asked for more money. I said sorry.
