Cheap Flights For You : Why Cheap Flights to Turkey Offer Such Great Value For Your Money

Cheap Flights For You

Turkey is one of the Mediterranean's best bargains, with over 24m visitors during 2008 and even more expected in 2009, and while Turkey is flirting constantly with Europe, its current status and exchange rate of the Turkish Lira against the British pound, ensures it is great value for money and cheap flights to Turkey are readily available.

The best time to travel to Turkey is between spring and autumn, with summer temperatures often peaking in the high 30's. Winters can be mild in some areas but positively freezing in others, and this effects the number of flights to Turkey that will be available at this time of year. UK passport holders must hold a passport valid for at least 90 days upon return, and can obtain a tourist visa upon entry for £10 sterling.

The Aegean coastline is served by flights to Turkey that land in either Izmir or Bodrum, and covers resorts from Bodrum, Gumbet and Bitez, to Kusadasi, Cesme and Ephesus. The Aegean coast area has some of the most spectacular archaeological sites in the world; with remains form Ottoman, Roman and Greek influences. It is thought St Paul sparked the beginnings of Christianity in this part of the world, and it is also where the face of the legendary Helen of Troy is said to have launched a thousand ships. The Aegean area is rich in colour with an abundance of pine trees and olive groves lining stretches of vast sandy beaches which in turn roll into the dazzling blue Aegean waters.

The Mediterranean coastline is served by flights to Turkey landing in either Dalaman or Antalya, covering resorts such as Marmaris, Icmeler and Dalyan in the west, to Belek, Side and Alanya to the east. Also known as the Turquoise coast, this area stretches for nearly 1600km, interspersed with fine sandy beaches and scattered with classical cities that have fallen regally to ruin. The majestic Toros Mountains form a stunning backdrop to this part of Turkey, ensuring the scenery is often breathtaking and presenting an inner natural beauty just waiting to be explored.

Flights to Turkey from the UK usually take around 4 to 4½ hours depending on which part you are visiting. Duty Free allowance enables you to buy 200 cigarettes and 50 cigars, 2 x 75cl bottles of wines or spirits and 120ml of perfume in accordance with the Turkish embassy website. Accommodation during your stay in Turkey can be exactly what you want it to be, from self catering apartments that offer the full freedom of being able to explore the local restaurants and cafes, to small family run bed and breakfasts that give an authentic Turkish feel, and the luxury of all inclusive hotels with lavish facilities.

So if you've never ventured to this part of the world before, or perhaps felt you didn't really know enough about the country, then now is the time to take the plunge, get those flights to Turkey booked and see for yourself exactly what this friendly, historic, and naturally beautiful country has to offer.
