Particularly in rural areas, care should be taken when hiring a car, as poor road conditions and potholes can often occur there. The use of the horn is already a daily routine for local drivers. If you hear the horn of your car in front of a curve, you should be warned and no longer overtake in the curve with your hired car. According to the Turkish friendliness, you don't have to fill up your car in Turkey alone, the petrol station attendant takes care of this.

Hire a car Turkey: The traffic rules

The traffic rules in Turkey are similar to those in Germany. However, there are some special features: pay attention to the cross traffic at a green traffic light and use the horn. The Turks like to honk their horns, which is why the driver only wants to draw attention to himself, for example when overtaking. Bus and lorry drivers are cautious to enjoy, because they are under enormous time pressure. Danger points such as potholes are often barely marked and can thus possibly be overlooked. The vehicles are often not illuminated at all or insufficiently at night.
