"Getting to Turkey By road" Turkey Transportation Tip by Erkmen

Turkey Transportation: 257 reviews and 239 photos


There are roads from the CIS, Greece, Bulgaria and Iran. Drivers may either choose the northern route of Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, and then Bulgaria, or the southern route through Belgium, Austria and Italy with a car-ferry connection to Turkey.

There are regular Coach (Bus) services between Turkey and Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland as well as Jordan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Syria.

Drivers bringing cars into Turkey must show their registration documents and driving license at the place of entry. If arriving from Europe, visitors must have a Green Card (available from insurance companies). Driving is on the right side and drivers must give way to the right at all times. The speed limit on motorways is 120kph (70mph), 90kph (55mph) on main roads and 50kph (30mph) in towns.
