Booking on-line from UK = no chance using the TCDD website.

I did my train/sleeper booking (Istanbul-Ankara) by e-mail/fax using Backpackers Travel Agency in Istanbul (Sultanahmet).

Flying is cheaper though.

Why not fly UK to Istanbul. Have a few nights in the great city, and then fly down to Dalaman?

chickpeacurry, If you want to go to Istanbul from Icmeler, just get yourself a transfer to Dalaman Airport and fly to Istanbul. Otherwise, you can do a long overnight bus trip from Marmaris to Istanbul. "turkeytravelplanner.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php…". You can use "www.bulucak.com" for domestic flight schedules and fares.

good luck,
