The last time we travelled to the airport it cost 75e and the taxi driver spent the whole time in the middle lane of the three lane roads! Then could not stop at a red light so had to accellerate through. Never again!
Can anyone recommend a safe and cheap way to do the journey.
We go out again in mid September and hope to reach the marina and return again safely!
Please help...

There is a very safe and reliable bus service that integrates with Turkish air arrivals and departures. If you dont fly turkish then you wait; dont buy food or drink at the airport though or you will negate your savings!!!!

Many of the yotties I know are now using United Blue for their transfers to and from Dalaman. About 13 I believe.

a friend used this recently to get from dalaman to orhaniye late at night. she said she was met promptly, the driver was polite and professional. all in all it was a good experience. i've just done a test booking, for 2 in a car its 22 gbp dalaman to marmaris marina.

We used Proper Car last time, clean vehicle, polite driver (and driving not bad by Turkish standards) For next months trip, have booked all 4 transfers plus hire car from them. Seem cheaper than Koral.

Hi Ya,

I use United Blue and its 12.50 sterling each way per person to the Tansas (Tesco) in the main town and about 16 to Yat Marine or catch a pink mini bus from outside the bank opposite the Tansas and go to Yat marine for 1 pound

If one or two are travelling the Havas bus is in my opinion a good option. I used it from Marmaris to Dalaman this summer and was happy with the price and service. I think the main problem would be finding out a what times the buses leave the airport when you are heading for Marmaris.

The inter city bus station is on the outskirts of Marmaris, about a mile from the marina.

New in this forum, we use Dm transfers for private transfers from dalaman to marmaris yacht marina every season.I have no hesitation in recommending them, here is the link;

Thanks for the many different companies to choose from.
One question, do you usually book a car for your party or take the cheaper minibus option that can mean a wait? The minibus seems to hang around the airport till full. Not so much fun at 0300hrs arriving on the Pegasus flight!

Well,before we used this company,we tried cheap shuttle transfer,it was the first and last for us.We were at our hotel in around 4 hours. :(

On shuttle transfer,they combine different planes,also they make so much stops in Marmaris at different hotels as well..It is a real pain..

With private taxi or minibus you will be in your hotel in 90min..

Thanks 'Marmarislover', that's what we thought may be the case with the shuttle transfers!
Will book a car for the two of us.
Anyone on the Pegasus flight arriving Dalaman 8th May at 3.30am want to share a car?

It is not that simple, the times are not fixed. In theory they meet all Turkish airline domestic flights. There are about 5/7 buses per day. The fare is 25 TL. They leave from outside the international terminal immediately beyond the taxi stand. We got lucky last time and caught the Havas. I usually check the arrivals at Dalaman from Istanbul online the day before we travel, to see if there is any hope of a bus.

Otherwise the taxi to Dalaman is now about 37 TL (on a meter) despite being only a few minutes. From there the local buses run every half hour until about 9pm, and cost about 15 TL.

The only shuttle transfer we have tried was flyThomasCook. The service was awful, and we waited 2 hours for the bus. Others were there far longer.

We've now used A2B Transfers three times for Dalaman, both from and to Marmaris Yat Marin. Cost was about 10 per person and we've never waited for more than about ten minutes; perhaps we were just lucky? We're heading back next month and will certainly be booking - straightforward, online - with them again.
