Holidays to Turkey on Budget

Hi everyone!

Thanks you for all your nice comments on my last post, they always make me smile and I will reply them very soon and visit your blogs but I will need more time online and have better internet than at the moment...


  As I said on my last post, I am not online a lot while I am in Turkey, despite that in the apartments,  restaurants, cafes...  are always free Wi-Fi,  internet is not the best in these places, it is fine for whatsapp but at the time of downloading pictures is nearly impossible and I can't wait to show you some :)
Many people tell me they would like to come to Turkey one day so I thought to post about traveling to Turkey easily and without being expensive, you will love it!



Now that the Turkish Lira isn't strong it is the cheapest time to visit Turkey.  The exchange rates are in our favour, you get 4.1TL per £1

Some examples of prices: 

In restaurants, the main courses are from £4, a soft drink is £1.20, and a glass of wine or large beer £2.


1. Book your flights early and compare different options: direct flights or one stop. If you choose indirect flight because it is much cheaper, you can consider also to stay one or two days in the city where you do the flight connection. It could be a really nice city to visit and it will be much better experience than waiting a few hours in the airport.

To see all the flight possibilities my favourite web is

If you are flexible on dates select "whole month" rather than specific dates and the costs for the outbound and return flights will be displayed for each day.  The website displays results from multiple airlines and I have often got a better price going with one and returning with another which is easy to check on the website 

2.You can come to Turkey as a couple and it's cheap but you get the best prices as four people.  It would be more fun and saves more money.

Lakeside Gardens apartments are from £200-£250 per week, so just £50 per week per person based on 4 sharing

It has two bedrooms, is fully air conditioned and equipped and a sizeable 70 sq Metres.

The website to rent the apartment is:

3.There are small buses known as a dolmus which regularly stop at the site and travel to neighbouring villages for a small sum and to Bodrum for just £2.

4.For those that like to drive, car hire is cheap and saves you £40 on a return airport transfer by taxi.

renting a car for a week from Bodrum airport costs around £95, so you will be looking to pay £25 per person!

The website I use to hire a car in Bodrum airport is:

Having a car is not essential, but allows you to stop to see all the sites whenever you want and the views are amazing in the Bodrum Peninsula.

You can visit Bodrum and many fishing villages. Hiring a car will is much better value than paying for excursions and taxis.


5.Lakeside Gardens apartments are just 15 minutes from Bodrum airport and from here you can flight to Istanbul from only £20, the flight takes just 40 minutes. Will you miss the chance to see this fantastic city for this price? The night stay in a nice budget hotel in Istanbul is around £45.

The websites I use to book hotels are:

6. Cheap and lovely Excursions:
From Bodrum a ferry to Kos takes just 20 minutes and costs only £18 return or to Rhodes for under £50!

 I will soon show you all the lovely places I am seeing in Turkey

Have a nice week everyone!
