    Dear Isabelle, We thank you for the feedback, we certainly also suffer from the long waiting at the border in the summer busy months. We try to warn all customers, however this information is not always reaching our guests.

    Thank you, Jesper! Yes, unfortunately the border queues in July and August are always like this - many cars from Germany/Austria going to Turkey back and forth... Not much we can do unfortunately :-)))
