Kusadasi (Turkey)

Kusadasi is a small beach town on Turkey's west coast, overlooking the Mediterranean. The city has recently started to become a popular beach holiday destination, especially among the tourists from the Nordic countries and Western Europe. In addition to beautiful sandy beaches, the area hosts one of the oldest mosques. One gate of the old city walls is still left. At all beaches in the area are also hotels and nearby open air bars offer everything possible from food to souvenirs and traditional Turkish carpets.

Car Rental

Things which affect the renting of the car:

  • Driver’s license: In the European Union / Schengen a driver's license from an EU country is sufficient, although for North Americans it is recommended to carry a separate international driving license, in addition to the American driving license.
  • Direction of traffic: In Europe the traffic is mainly right-handed. The exception is Great Britain, which is left-handed traffic.
  • Insurance: In Western Europe, all rental cars include some kind of insurance, so additional insurance policies are often unnecessary (unless you are going to Russia or Eastern Europe).
  • Driving abroad: You can drive a rental car almost everywhere within all countries of the European Union / Schengen territory without additional fees. Eastern European countries and Russia are the exceptions and you should always ask the car rental company in advance about the rules.
