Dalaman Airport to Kalkan: Transfers and Taxi
Transfers from Dalaman Airport to Kalkan
Located in one of the most beautiful bays in the country, the tiny and cosy resort of Kalkan is the perfect family vacation destination. Small houses and no crowds of tourists create a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere, and calm and transparent waters — excellent swimming conditions.
Private transfers are the best choice in case you’re going to the resort from Dalaman. The advantages of this travel option include:
A faster journey. Traveling by transfer, you avoid cab lines and waiting for buses (by the way, the shuttle depends on domestic flights’ arrivals, and if a flight is canceled, a bus trip may be canceled, as well, and you may spend plenty of time waiting for the next one). The transfer driver meets you strictly at the appointed time and you don’t have to wait a minute.
A higher comfort level. You don’t need to travel in a hot car or a cramped and crowded bus. All Kiwitaxi vehicles are comfortable and air-conditioned and not older than 7 years. You don’t share the vehicle with strangers and reach the destination relaxed.
No need for currency exchange. Unlike local transport, you can pay for a transfer in your desired currency — just choose a prepayment on the website and select one of several currencies.
This transport option can also save you plenty of stress and energy when traveling with a child. Just remember to book the necessary child seat when making your order.
The Kiwitaxi transfer from Dalaman Airport to Kalkan costs 60 euros. The trip takes 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Taxi from Dalaman Airport to Kalkan
Dalaman Airport taxis are available to book 24/7. You can see yellow-colored cars standing right in front of the terminals. A special staff member helps tourists book a cab at the rank. There, you can also find some stands with cab fares to popular resorts. If you don’t want to take a cab at the rank, you can make a booking by phone or through the official taxi company website.
The price for a taxi trip from the airport to Kalkan is 350 lira or 60 euros.
Airport cabs are usually 4-seater ones, so if you are a group and need a larger vehicle, it is better to choose a pre-arranged Kiwitaxi transfer. In this case, you can easily reserve a minibus with the desired seating and baggage capacity. Also, when taking a taxi on the spot, it is advisable to have the exact address of your hotel. Traveling with Kiwitaxi, you won’t need to print it out, as the driver will know it advance.
