Dalaman Airport Taxi and Transfer

Dalaman is a picturesque district located in the Mugla Province on the southwestern coast of Turkey. Known as ‘Turkeys’ Turquoise Coast’, it has a wide range of beaches surrounded by mountains that make a perfect backdrop for beautiful photographs, attracting tourists all year long. To accommodate this large inflow, the Dalaman international airport unveiled its new terminal taking in up to thirty-five passenger airlines at one time, a parking lot that can hold up to 550 vehicles and sixty check-in counters that can serve four thousand passengers in less than an hour. This newly upgraded airport provides passengers with access to the diverse Dalaman airport taxi services covering shuttles, minibuses, public and private transfer.

State of the taxi system in Dalaman

Dalaman Airport taxi

For a trip that lets you take in the beauty of the city, it is best to choose from the various Dalaman airport taxi services made available right outside the airport. The regular taxis here operate on standardized meters and are easy to hire throughout the city. A one-kilometre taxi ride costs approximately Euros 0.39, and this cost can easily go up to around Euros 3.17 per kilometre with charges for waiting and stopovers.

Even though yellow taxis are one of the cheap Dalaman airport transfers, the traffic situation in Dalaman can be precarious which means the taxi fares may vary significantly depending on the time of day and destination. This can make getting around the city quite a stressful and frustrating task, especially for visitors traveling from the airport to their desired destination. The regular taxis also come with a huge set of drawbacks such as lack of professional services, language barriers, dishonest drivers, or the unavailability of online and cashless payment options.

With these issues plaguing the travellers’ experience in transfer airport Dalaman, the city needed to have its very own reliable and affordable private transportation service. This is where Fat Taxi comes in – a transportation service with a focus on making Dalaman airport transfer services comfortable and affordable for a wide array of passengers.

What makes Fat Taxi unique?

Fat Taxi was launched by a group of friends to deliver a premium service at affordable prices. Having been frequent travellers ourselves, we deeply understood the frustrations of travellers caused by some traveling encounters that leave us hopeless ruining our chance of a great trip. This propelled us to bring together our collective years of experience in hospitality, customer service, and marketing to launch a trusted private transportation service like none other in Turkey.

At the time, there were plenty of airport transfers Dalaman could offer, but it left many travellers feeling deceived and frustrated which eventually led to creating negative stereotypes about Turkey and Dalaman as a traveller-friendly destination. Our goal wasn’t to compete with the cheap cost and deteriorate the quality of travel but to provide an opportunity for a safe, comfortable yet affordable traveling experience.

We wanted to ensure we contribute to the reputation of Dalaman and Turkey as being a traveller-friendly destination, and with Fat Taxi, we aspired to be the game-changers who prioritized doing the right thing above all else and thereby went on to set new standards of private transportation and quality care in Dalaman.
