Who doesn’t dream of a holiday in Turkey with sun, sea and culture? But often the budget keeps us from this dream. But don’t worry, with a few simple tips and tricks you can still make your dream holiday come true.
First of all, plan your trip at a time when there are not so many tourists. Avoid the high season and travel in spring or autumn instead. Prices for accommodation and activities are lower during this time and you can enjoy the country without the crowds. So are our prices also variable and cheaper during low seasons.
Another tip is to use a short-term rental. By renting holiday homes or flats, you can save money that you would otherwise have to spend on expensive hotels. It also allows you to live more like a local and experience everyday Turkish life first hand.
Another tip is to visit local restaurants and market stalls instead of expensive tourist restaurants. Here you can enjoy Turkish cuisine at a fraction of the price and taste real local dishes. I will go further into local restaurants of Alanya in my next blog.
A final tip is to use public transport instead of taxis. Here you can save money while exploring the country in a unique way. A one way ticket with the bus cost you only 11,50₺ (approx. 55 cents).
“Travel is the only thing you can buy that will make you richer.”
With these tips, you can make your dream holiday in Turkey a reality without spending a fortune. Take the chance to explore the country and its culture and create unforgettable memories that you will take with you for a lifetime.
