19 Jan New Istanbul airport transfer and taxi
Travelling can be a delight or a hassle depending on your overall experience. Having a good start on your first few hours in a new city can have a positive impact on your overall trip experience, and the first thing almost everyone does when arriving at an airport is to find a ride to their destination of residence. This is why we believe it’s essential to find the most reliable, safe and capable alternative for your residence or hotel transfer when you arrive at Istanbul Airport.
As most travellers know, there are many possible hardships such as language barrier, possibility of fraud or even just the problem of finding an available regular taxi during peak hours. These issues can turn an otherwise pleasant travel experience into a nightmare, and that is precisely why we are here for you.
Why Fat Taxi is among the best Airport Transportation options: A true travelling companion
Our aim is to offer the most comfortable airport transfer in Istanbul, both mentally and physically.
With our fluent English-Speaking local team, your transportation is handled with care and ease of communication. You don’t need to open Google Maps to show the driver where you want to go or use translation websites to ask questions about the city. This also helps you save up on your roaming gigabytes while enjoying the ease of mind throughout your travel.
We are here for you before, during and after your Istanbul Airport transfer to help you with any questions you may have or any assistance you need, in order to ensure that you have a great Istanbul experience overall.
With competitive and reasonable prices along with an impeccable service, Fat Taxi is one of the best options among its alternatives. Our policy of charging per vehicle allows you to save up on trips with your friends, family or coworkers. Additional options of full-day/half-day, group and executive hires as well as our city tours, provide more than just a ride and rather a delightful experience to start your travel in the right manner.
But why not just get a yellow taxi?
While a yellow taxi is always a sound option in many parts of the world, choosing an Istanbul Airport taxi when you arrive may not be the ideal solution. Same applies when you are checking out of your hotel and you hail a yellow taxi for your hotel-airport transfer in Istanbul.
It’s very hard to find a cheap taxi in Istanbul. One of the biggest disadvantages the common yellow taxi has is the ever-running meter.
Especially during rush hour (which is almost every hour in Istanbul), whether you are stuck in traffic or taking a longer detour to avoid being stuck in congestions, the meter will keep running. In both cases, even a fairly cheap ride can cost much more than what you originally had in mind. Fat Taxi’s fixed prices allow you to adjust and plan your budget beforehand. This leaves no room for an element of surprise from traffic or occasional con-artists that may attempt to take a long route just to see their meter in action.
