Turkey Holidays All Inclusive

Do you want to go on holiday and not worry about all those little added extras that can creep up on you? Do you want a break from your wallet or purse? Then ALL INCLUSIVE is the way forward.

Booking an All Inclusive hotel takes away the stress and strain of forever dipping into your pocket when you want a snack, the kids need an ice-cream or mum need a refreshing glass of something cool. You don’t even have to worry about where to eat on a daily basis, everything is laid out for you.
Each hotel has different grades of All Inclusive to offer from Standardto Platinum. Standard being some snacks and drinks throughout the day to Platinum which is a 24 hour service. Each hotel is different so we advice you check what All Inclusive means for each hotel before booking. Maybe Standard All Inclusive is enough for you giving you the freedom to explore, or maybe you want to feel secure in the knowledge that Platinum has you covered for every eventuality.

You can set off from the UK knowing that the majority of your holiday is paid for. Taking just a little extra for those special purchases, maybe a Turkish rug or novelty fez. All Inclusive makes budgeting for your holiday a doddle.
Once you have chosen and paid for your All Inclusive hotel you can relax and zip up that pocket, put on your wrist band and take advantage of everything the hotel has to offer. You your friend or family are free to go about your day at no extra cost saving your money for a boat trip or jeep safari.
Some hotels also have entertainment included in their All Inclusive package, so if you are celebrating a special occasion you need not leave the hotel taking advantage of a relatively free evening of entertainment. Staying in the hotel means that you get to meet lots of new people from all corners of the world. Though I guarantee you will probably meet somebody from your home town.
All Inclusive resorts are also generally exclusive so no fighting for sun beds, constantly watching where the kids are or queuing at the bar leaving body and soul to relax and take a vacation too. An added bonus is also no awkward tip giving situations as all gratuities are included in the price.
Whatever your type of All Inclusive you desire why not check out our All Inclusive hotels matched with a great value flight and transfer. Call our dedicated sales agents or book online.

Turkey Holidays 2015

Turkey General Info:
Turkey is a country with an area of 779,452sq km (300,948sq miles), six times that of Greece, yet with half the number of people per square kilometre. The population is estimated at around 75 million. The Anatolian peninsula has strongly defined geographical limits: the Karadeniz (Black Sea) to the north; the Aegean in the west and the Mediterranean in the south; and the high mountain ranges that culminate in Buyukagri Dagi (Mount Ararat) at5,165m (16,946ft), to the east. The 5 per cent that lies west of the (Canakkale Bogazi (Dardanelles) is flatter, geographically a part of Europe, and contains the cities of Istanbul and Edirne. Its limit is defined by an artificial border whose exact position has varied considerably according to the politics of the day.
 

The main land mass consists of the bleak steppe lands of the central Anatolian Plateau, set at 1,000m (3,300ft), ringed by the verdant Pontic  mountains to the north and the Toros (Taurus) to the south. These ranges run east to west and join up with the vast, inhospitable mountainous region in the east that borders Iran and Iraq. Volcanoes and earthquakes: There are several large volcanoes in Turkey besides Mount Ararat, the highest, but none is thought to be still active. Fault lines do still have movement, and earthquakes in the north and west of Turkey have been common throughout history and continue to strike every ten years or so, the last being in 2007. Both the bogazici (Bosporus) and the Dardanelles owe their existence to of the shifting fault lines, and the whole of the black Sea was created as a result of subsidence along a series of fissures

Cheap Holidays to Turkey - Discover Turkey


Turkey Holidays: Istanbul City Travel Guide

Turkey abounds with attractions. But if you really want to immerse yourself into the culture, the first stop should be Istanbul. It is the cultural center of Turkey and has a blossoming population that is close to the 20 million mark. It provides a bridge between Europe and Asia, and is the financial hub of the Republic.

Arriving
The most painless way to arrive is via plane. The city is served by the Istanbul Ataturk Airport. An express bus service offers transport to the city center which is 20km away. The metro offers a cheaper option if you are a budget traveler. You need a tourist Visa. As you cannot purchase one when you land, you need to use the e-Visa system which has been active since 2013.
Getting Around
Buying an Istanbulkart is the most convenient way of getting around if you will be in the city for a while. It is a plastic card that can be used as a ticket on buses, the metro, ferries and trains.
Car hire is implausible if you are new to the city. With very few maps available, taxis are more reasonable if you want to stay away from public transportation.
Accommodation
Istanbul has its fair share of accommodation options. There are many hotels, serving tourists with different budgets. Anything from the Four Seasons to the Hotel Amira is ideal. You need to book your stay in advance for prior arrangements to be made. Harbiye and Sultanahmet are the best districts to reside in.
Dining
There are many eating spots around the city. Whether you want a quick snack, or a full course meal, your options will be abundant. The small lokantas will give you the most authentic dining experience, as they are popular with the locals.
Places of Interest
Istanbul has a rich array of ancient ruins that tell the story of its founding. The Sultanahmet square will spoil you with renowned attractions such as Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern.
What to do
Every visitor is encouraged to go to at least one hamam. They are abundant in Sultanahmet and offer plush scrubbing and massage services. There are organized walk tours for those who want to soak up the offerings in an ordered fashion. A Bosphorous Cruise is also greatly recommended. There are shopping districts too, for those who want to treat themselves.

Istanbul can be a bit overwhelming for a first visitor, but the city offers unforgettable memories. It is a nice place to visit before you head on to the beaches.
