Passport & visa
To travel to Turkey, you will need a valid passport or a European identity card that must be valid for the period of intended stay.

Apart from a valid passport or European identity card, you also need a visa to travel to Turkey. As of 10 April 2014, you need to apply for the visa before you travel. Visas are no longer issued at airports in Turkey. Payment is by credit card only. We recommend that you arrange your visa at least 24 hours prior to departure in order to ensure that the payment is made on time.

Milas-Bodrum is a new airport situated 36 km to the east of Bodrum. It is used for scheduled flights and charter flights. A taxi to Bodrum is quite expensive, so visitors are recommended to share taxis where possible. Shuttle bus services for domestic flights take visitors to the bus station; the journey takes 30 minutes.

Public transport

A dolmus is the simplest and cheapest way to get around in Bodrum. These are mini buses – or big taxis – that leave when they are full and stop on request. Buses leave for other parts of Turkey from the Otogar bus station. It is wise to reserve seats and a number of businesses operate on the same routes. Assume that a ticket will cost about 4 euro for 100 km. The bus drive from Bodrum to Istanbul costs about 40 euro.


Taxis are yellow and have a ‘taxi’ sign on the roof. They have a meter with two different rates. Between midnight and 6 o’clock in the morning, a trip can cost up to 50% more than during daytime.


Turkish post offices are recognisable by the PTT symbol. The main post office is called Merkez Postanesi in Turkish and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Chemist’s shop

These are called Eczanesi in Turkish. Each chemist’s shop’s window indicates the name and telephone number of the chemist’s shop currently offering a night-time service.
