    In major cities, such as Istanbul, I probably wouldn't drive. The road systems can be complicated and there is such a huge amount of traffic that the better option would be the metro.

    For the rest of Turkey - be very aware. The driving standards are challenging to say the least, and they rely a lot on Inshallah (if Allah wills it). The main roads between cities can be of a good standard and may be a toll road, but the back roads can be poorly maintained, no lights, no road markings etc.

    If you are not in a hurry and are happy to be cautious, then driving will allow you a better sense of freedom, although the bus companies have the routes really well sown up and they are cheap, frequent and fairly pleasant to use.

    My advice is hire a car, but think twice about driving late at night on main roads which is when the big busses and lorries are out and about.

    Also, just check when you are driving about petrol stations etc and make sure you fill up frequently.
