I figured out that you live near Birmingham, UK? If you buy tickets early, then at the moment Birmingham-Istanbul tickets are with Turkis airlines and Lufthansa under £200. Turkish airlines has non-stop flight.

Sonia, By using "skyscanner.com.tr/transport/…", you can see that in October Turkish Airlines has 164 GBP fare, R/T, Birmingham - Istanbul, non stop. That is a good deal.

Check prices with British Airways, Easyjet and KLM too, and of course, be flexible in you choice of dates and airports for the best prices. Best get booked as soon as possible, flight prices tend to increase the later they are booked.

That's a good price, jinny! Cheapest THY flights to Istanbul in Oct would be £426 for two, plus a round trip of over 400 miles to that airport!

Otherwise it's got to be a connecting flight pushing prices even higher.
