Dalaman airport is about 90 mins away by private taxi transfer - currently around £55 each way for a couple. Low-price operators such as easyJet, Thomas Cook and Monarch now fly to Dalaman from many UK airports, and BA will be operating a cut-price service from 2015.
Car hire is not really needed for guests at the Nur Apartments, the Customs House Apartments or Falcon Villas, as you can walk into Kalkan and access all the facilities in 5 mins or less. We can arrange private taxi transfers to and from the airport for your party - see our Booking site for more details
Guests at our other apartments and villas may wish to hire a car if they want to get into Kalkan centre on a regular basis. If you do want to hire a car while you're here, we can arrange one for you in advance, ready to be picked up at Dalaman airport. Or, if you want to wait until you are at the resort and just hire one by the day, there are several hire car companies that will let you do this.
If you don't want to hire a car but want to go exploring further afield once you are here, the dolmus (local bus service) is always a good bet - the dolmus service extends right across the region from the bus station in Kalkan. Taxis are also plentiful and can be easily booked in advance or hailed on demand.
