Staff were good and allowed me to take the vehicle 30 minutes prior to the time it was technically booked.The signage for car rental drop-off at Sabiha Gokcen International Airport in Istanbul is utterly atrocious. I appreciate this is not likely the fault of Avis, but I literally drove around the complex for 20 minutes trying to find it.

Bad serviceThe car was in good conditionSuch bad service at reception, they told me that I needed to pay for insurance again after buying insurance on Kayak. Then the car wasn’t filled with fuel as stated on the website. I then also had to pay extra when I brought the car back to SAW airport for the parking
3.6 Mediocre27 Feb. 2018
They charge me 2 times for insurance and the payless custumer service didn't help me att all. I will never rent a car from this page and payless.
2.0 Mediocre18 Jan. 2018
Make sure what car you get before signingNothingClassification of the cars is terrible. How come car A and car B can be considered as the same class cars as car A’s price is double of car B??? And they tell you that they will give you car A, But in the last minute try to give you car B. I cancelled booking. And I really am doubtful about renting again from Payless!! Those who want to rent must make sure what car they will get you
2.0 Mediocre10 Jan. 2018
Terrible in all meansDidn't get the car I asked for or similar as I booked, also I requested full to full I got empty and was panicked cause I couldn't find a gas station near by in the middle of the night. Not very helpful staff! Payless never again!

The flight delayed 1 hour as a result I was late on the appointment for renting the car so the person didn’t provide me with the car I wanted. So I was forced to rent a car that more expensive because it was a luxury can and he told me that there is no car with 7 seat or a bus. This was very disappointing.
1.9 Horrible1 Aug. 2021
My rental got canceled without informing me after spending 20 mins of international calls they agency told me that i have to make another booking and will refund you back. After returning from my trip and communicating with the agency refund process is harder than my education degree ! Bad experience!

On the pick up, we notice some details on the car. Small ones. I ask the guy to write them down on the reception paper, but he didn’t want to and told me not to worry about it. I toke some pictures just in case. On the drop off, the guy checked the car completely and started to ask me about every detail the car had. I told him there weren’t on me and that I told the other guy to write them. He didn’t believe me. I show him the pictures and then he did. If I didn’t take the pictures I would have pay for all those details that were already in the car.

Misleading trust, selling not recognized Allianz Global AssistanceThe car company Budget was Ok.Your site has failed my trust. You sold me a Allianz Global Assistance insurance. Policy: Rental Car Protection. Policy No.: EUSP2109505133. Budget did not recognize this insurance and said it was null and void as far as they are concerned. They made me sign a disclaimer that I have not purchased any insurance and that all accidents will be paid by me. Your company is promoting misleading insurance products, you are deceiving customers

I have been dealing with Enterprise for about ten years. Every year I rent a car from your company twice, but this will be the last time I deal with you. The service is from your customers who are very tired. They do not speak English, knowing that it is a global company. So that he does not answer, and if I answer, he does not speak English, sometimes two days, and does not answer. I have been waiting for the lease for a week and they did not send me the lease contract by e-mail. Nothing good.
2.0 Mediocre18 Dec. 2020
N/aThe whole thing was a ripoff. Enterprise did not follow through with the quoted price. They charged extra fees for a "deposit" and claimed it would be refunded after returning the vehicle, which it wasn't. They intentionally make it very confusing so you don't know what you're paying for and then they pretend like they don't speak english.

Car hire excess insurance in Istanbul

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Istanbul car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Istanbul.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Istanbul car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Istanbul

  • Renting a car in Istanbul will provide you with the opportunity to travel at your own pace and take in the Turkish wonders that most appeal to you. Head west and take in the stunning Aegean coastline, go south to the Mediterranean shore dubbed the Turquoise Coast, or check out the curving wonder that is the Taurus Mountains. There is plenty to see and do in Istanbul, with a long list of sightseeing, dining, and shopping attractions in the city. Having access to a car will mean that you can make the most of the city and enjoy your dream holiday.
  • Istanbul Atatürk Airport has connecting flights all across the world and gives travelers the opportunity to rent from major car hire companies. It is best to research your preferred company using KAYAK now to make picking up your car on arrival even smoother. After collecting your baggage, continue towards exit Gate A and you will find the counter of your chosen company.
  • Ensure that you have a decent GPS navigation device, as some streets names in Istanbul are not labeled clearly or at all. Also look to invest in a physical road map and use landmarks to familiarize yourself. If you are planning on traveling a decent distance outside of the city limits of Istanbul, ensure your hire company has the option of providing a KGS card for access to the tollways. These tollways will make your travel route considerably quicker.
  • 15 million people live in Istanbul, and this can turn the roads into a circus in rush hour. The peak morning commute occurs between 7:30 am and 9:30 am, while in the evening it is best to avoid driving between 5 pm and 8:30 pm if possible. Specifically, the E-5 and TEM motorways will get congested as city workers make their daily commute, so if you can reroute your drive to avoid these you will save lots of time.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Istanbul for $46 or less
  • Book your car hire in Istanbul at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Istanbul are around 94% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hires in Istanbul are around 66% cheaper than other car types, on average
