Taxis are the main travel option and are readily available outside the International Terminal. You will find rate boards on prominent display at the airport terminals to ensure fixed and fair prices for taxi journeys to various destinations.
In peak summer season you can expect bus companies to operate a few shuttle buses to and from cities such as Bodrum. As services can be irregular at the best of times, you may have to rely on taxis to reach your destination. Havas bus services connect Bodrum airport with Istanbul to coincide with Turkish Airline flights so be sure to take advantage of this if you are heading for the Turkish capital. To connect with the other bus services in the region, you may need to take a taxi to Milas or Bodrum and hop on a connecting bus service from there. Many destinations however are easily reached by taxi, so don't despair if you can't find a bus.
Bodrum airport is situated in a convenient position that is simple to get to if you are travelling by road. The International Terminal is only a mile away from highway D330 and is well signposted from the main road. Hiring a car is easy. You can choose from many popular companies including Hertz, Avis and Europcar. You can reach Milas in around 20 minutes by car and you can expect the drive to Bodrum to take around 45 minutes.
You will find several small car parks conveniently situated adjacent to the terminals. If you are driving you can't miss the car parks as two are situated in front of the International Terminal and the other car park is right next to the Domestic Terminal. Offering both short term and long term parking and with spaces for all vehicles including motorbikes, cars and coaches - whatever you are driving, you can be sure that there will be a parking space suited to your needs. Although the car parks are small, they are safe and secure, giving you maximum peace of mind and leaving you free to enjoy your holiday.
It's very cheap to stay for under an hour in one of the several small car parks. However, a word of warning to anyone planning on dropping off or picking up a passenger from the airport terminals - Turkish police are currently making an effort to crack down on illegal airport transfers operating from the airport to various nearby towns. So if you are picking up or dropping off a traveller you would be wise to pay for a ticket at the short term car park instead of pulling up by the side of the road and attracting unwanted attention. The small fee charged by the airport car parks for a short stay (usually half an hour) is definitely worth paying when you consider the potential fines you could incur by not using designated areas!
You can expect to find all the modern facilities that you would expect from a small yet developing airport. You will find many useful features to make your passage through the airport as easy and efficient as possible. Facilities include cash machines, a currency exchange, excellent parking, duty free shopping, car rental companies and an information desk. In fact, the only problem is that the food is pretty expensive. So be warned and plan accordingly if you are on a budget.
