The car was very clean , driver very polite. The direction to find the bus was very confusing, not so easy to get to the bus rather than that good service overall.

Great service - helpful, quick and comfortable. The return was on their schedules service which worked really well

Whether you've just arrived at Istanbul or it's time for you to bid adieu to this gorgeous city, a trip to/from the Istanbul Airport is a given. If you're looking for a convenient, hassle-free, and cost-efficient transfer between the airport and the City Center, you've come to the right place. This safe and reliable one-way transfer takes you to or from the airport on comfortable vehicles on a shared basis. Whether you're traveling from the airport to the city or from the city to the airport, you'll have no worries traveling! Even if there are changes in timing for your arrival/departure, your driver will wait for you. All shuttle services take place on 54-seater busses- board it, sit back, and enjoy your ride through the bustling city of Istanbul!

What Is A Shared Transfer Service?

With shared transfers, you'll be traveling in a bus with other guests who have similar arrival timings. All guests will be dropped off at the City Center. It is a lot cheaper than a private transfer, but be warned, it involves a (slightly) higher waiting time- anywhere between 5-45 minutes.
