Balıkesir Koca Seyit Airport is a compact yet well-equipped airport, located in the western region of Turkey. It is approximately 90km from the city centre, making car rental an excellent option for your onward journey.

Car Rental at Balıkesir Airport

Several international and domestic car rental companies operate from Balıkesir Airport. Avis, Budget, Europcar, and Sixt all have desks located in the arrivals hall. Cars should be booked in advance, especially in the peak summer months, to ensure availability.

Driving in Turkey

Keep in mind, unlike the UK, Turks drive on the right-hand side of the road. Speed signs are in kilometres per hour, not miles. It's also worth noting that Turkish law requires all occupants of a vehicle to wear their seatbelts.

On the Road: Useful Information

Refuelling

There are several petrol stations to choose from near Balıkesir Airport. Make sure to check whether your rental vehicle requires petrol (_benzin_) or diesel (_dizel_) before refuelling. It is also worth knowing that many Turkish petrol stations are full service.

Currency

The currency in Turkey is the Turkish Lira (TL). Credit cards are widely accepted but having some local currency is advised, especially for smaller establishments or for use at toll roads. Some car rentals may also require payment in local currency.

Exploring Balıkesir and beyond

Picking a suitable car class can greatly enhance your travel experience. Consider compact cars for city driving or if you are planning to explore the scenic countryside, an SUV may provide a more comfortable ride.

Route Suggestions

From the airport, it is an easy drive along the D230 road to the city centre. For a road trip along the Aegean coast, head west towards Ayvalık, a charming seaside town known for its Aegean architecture and olive oil.

Weather and Climate

Balıkesir experiences a Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot and dry with temperatures often exceeding 30°C while winters are mild and rainy. The temperature in the car can become extremely hot, so ensure to park in the shade and use the air conditioning when necessary.
