It is highly advised that visitors rent a car while they are in Antalya as having a car at your disposal makes it much easier and convenient to explore the neighboring countryside. For instance, the ancient Roman city of Perge is just 18 km (11.2 miles) from Antalya and is an easy trip by car. It is also often cheaper for larger parties to rent a vehicle than it is to take the tour buses to neighboring destinations like Perge.
Would-be car renters with flights to Antalya Airport will be happy to hear that it is quick and convenient to pick your rental car up at the airport. Rental car counters are available in both Terminals 1 and 2 of the airport so, no matter where you land, your rental car is just steps away.
Take care when driving in Antalya as many drivers can be a bit more aggressive than visiting drivers might be used to. For instance, drivers will often speed by you to pass you -- even in a roundabout. So make it easier on yourself by being careful and letting the traffic move around you instead of fighting it.

If you wish to see all that Antalya has to offer then certainly the best vehicle type is a sedan, compact or a coupe. Many of the city’s most beautiful lanes and alleys are limited in size and larger vehicles may struggle to navigate them at times. Parking can be another difficulty for large vehicles as streetside parking spaces may be limited in size. In general, larger vehicles are also uncommon amongst locals, so roads aren’t designed for them.
