Domestic flights in advance or book when in Turkey?

Hello

I wonder if you could advise as to whether it is better to book domestic flights (Dalaman to Istanbul) in advance, at home or is it better to wait when arrived in Istanbul?

Many thanks

Yaya, welcome to Turkey.

It is definitely better to book these domestic flights in advance because you will most likely get better fares. When you wait till the last minute, you will get the top fares.

Yaya, Check the following websites for domestic flight schedules and fares but do not book thru them. It is better to use the airlines own websites: "https://www.aerobilet.com/", and "http://www.bulucak.com/". Pegasus Airlines, Atlas Jet, Onur Air, Turkish Airlines, Anadolu Jet and Sun Express Airlines are the major domestic (and international) airlines operating in Turkey.

good luck,

Ilaria, it is up to you. This is a matter of personal choice, unrelated to the airlines.

Ilaria,

When I go abroad, I always get a travel insurance. It's just a precautionary thing for me. You never know, anything can happen anytime. It's always good to be prepared beforehand.
