It depends how you are getting there. My husband and I booked a private transfer last year and it took 90 mins however my Mum and Dad has priority drop off on a Thomas Cook bus and got there in just under 3 hours.

It can take 3 hours or even more. Depends on many things. First of all if you are on the tour operators coach you may have to wait quite a while before the coach even leaves the airport (until all passengers are on coach). Then there might be a comfort stop of around 20+ mins or so. Then you may have to drop a few people of in Marmaris at different accomodations before heading to Icmeler. When you reach Icmeler it depends if you are one of the first to be dropped off or one of the last. Add all this to the journey time of around 90 mins and you can see how it might take 3 hours or more.

yes agree with gtt, we dont normally mind it taking upto 3 hours on the coach but this year opting for a private transfer 1 way... not in a rush to get home so will get the coach back to airport. matt

All of these times are based on my own experiences and are based on when I have left the Airport.

Rented car 1 hour 5 mins with no stopping en route,

Taxi transfer 1 hour 10 mins with no stopping en route,

Private Transfer 1 hour 25 mins with no stopping en route,

Shuttle transfer, 1 hour 30 mins,with no stopping en route, or with a stop en route 1 hour 45 mins,

Tour operator large Coach 2 to 3 hours with a stop en route that usually takes 30 mins.

Yes agree with .mattandkaren. We have transfers included this year (booked a package as it worked out cheaper), but we will still book private transfer from Dalaman to Icmeler. (We will tell rep on arrival that we don't require the transfer). On way home will use the transfer coach.

Agreed last yr first time we went we got TC trf & it was a nightmare. Took 3 hours and they were three longest hours of my life. My parents have friends there who do private transfers to 2nd time we went we used them :) 1 hour 15 or so it took much better start to out holiday - def worth spendin that extra for our hols :)

Agree with RWB. It tends to be the the large coach used by the tour operators, with all the drop offs, which takes the most time.
