Tips to get the Most out of your Turkish Holiday

Often when booking a holiday, it can seem like a fortnight on a golden beach, sipping cocktails and swimming in the sea is all you’ll need to recharge and recuperate from your hectic life back home. But what happens if the kids are crying, or the weather takes an unexpected turn? Here are some tips to make sure your Turkish holiday runs as smoothly as possible.

Turkish Holidays

1.            Book all-inclusive

Cheap holidays to Turkey all-inclusive can really save you money in the long run. Drinks and food are included and this can often work out cheaper, even if you decide to have some meals outside of the hotel.

2.            Check out the weather forecast before you leave

Yes, endless sunshine would be ideal, but sometimes even Turkey has the odd weather hiccup and as many of you will know, when it rains abroad – it pours! Be prepared with plans for a rainy day, such as a trip to the Blue Mosque or the Hagia Sophia museum in Istanbul, but you won’t regret packing an umbrella and raincoats, just in case.

3.            Think back-up plan for bored kids

There are many options besides the beach and pool to keep the kids happy on your Turkey holiday. Visit the Aqua Dream Water Park in Marmaris, or take a safari tour by jeep, where you can see wonderful wildlife, traditional Turkish habitats and sample Turkish cuisine. The beaches offer water sports, so there are options for both the thrill-seekers and those who wish to relax.

4.            Plan excursions

Planning your trips can have many advantages. Firstly, booking in advance can often save money and secondly, it means you aren’t left wondering what to do if you fancy a break from the beach. Visit Ankara, Turkey’s capital city, to see Roman ruins or simply admire the breath-taking buildings while strolling down the traditional Turkish Streets.

5.            Budget each day

It can be very easy to over-spend on holiday as drinks, meals, ice creams, taxis and excursions can soon add up. Set a daily budget so that you are not left out of pocket for the last few days of your stay. Remember that drinks can often dramatically increase overall restaurant bills, so bear that in mind when setting your daily limit.

Follow the tips above and your trip to Turkey is sure to run smoothly. Planning ahead is key for your perfect retreat, so visit Turkey’s tourism websites, check out the forecast and pack accordingly to make sure everything goes to plan.
