Make use of the drop down branch menu to find out more about our car rental in Istanbul. You can see about opening hours and car categories at each branch and if you click on the second tab you can open a Google Maps overview to become more familiar with where we are situated. For those wanting more flexibility with their travels take advantage of our 24 hour pick-ups and returns provided at our Istanbul Ataturk Airport and Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport branches. Decide which locations suits you best and then head to our bookings page to make your reservation online and do a quick price comparison of the rental cars on offer. Please be aware that as specific cars are subject to availability we can only guarantee you to receive a rental vehicle in the car category you selected.


Our Service

All our branches offer a premium fleet of up-to-date rental cars from leading brand manufacturers. With our attractive rates you can get behind the wheel of a BMW or Mercedes-Benz sedan for less than you might expect. At our Istanbul Ataturk Airport location you also have the ability to rent a minivan like a BMW X3, which can sit up to five and offer ample leg and luggage room. We also provide the chance to optimize your rental experience with deals on a range of useful add-ons. Include extras like child seats, GPS, additional driver coverage, and insurance options. Other optional features include Theft Protection and Tire- and Windscreen Coverage.

Traffic Information

Driving in Istanbul can be challenging for newcomers to the city. Besides the often congested traffic, locals tend to not hold fast to road rules and regulations. It is a good idea to book at GPS to avoid the many one way streets you will otherwise encounter. Parking can be limited as well, so make sure your hotel has designated parking spaces or look into ones that have valet services. While out and about you can look for covered or open air parking lots, especially in business and commercial districts like Taksim.

The main roadways are the O-1, O-2, O-3, and O-4. The O-1 is an inner ring which crosses the 15 July Martyrs Bridge, popularly called First Bosphorus Bridge, which connects Ortaköy on the European side to Beylerbeyi on the Asian side. The outer ring, O-2 crosses the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, or Second Bosphorus Bridge, and spans the Bosphorus Strait. A Third Bosphours Bridge, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, connects the two continents from near to the Black Sea and Beykoz on the Asian side. Getting between both halves of the city is also possible with the Eurasia Tunnel connecting Kazlıçeşme and Göztepe. Be aware that most bridges are tolled routes and only accept electronic payments. The European E80 runs through Istanbul as well.

Sixt Tips

When you rent a car in Istanbul you can set off to freely explore at your own pace. Tour around this vast city, visiting the attractions found on both its European and Asian sides. Soak up the rich culture and history while you enjoy the plethora of shopping and dining destinations. You can visit fantastic museums like the contemporary art at the Istanbul Modern or spend time in lavish historic palaces. There are also an abundance of churches and mosques to marvel at like the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. You can also take day trips from Istanbul with your car rental to escape the hustle and bustle of this very vibrant city. Grab some fresh air and a bit of quiet at the Black Sea or in the nearby forests.
