arrival 3 am Izmir airport: what should we do?!


we are about to book a flight to Izmir. The problem: flights from Berlin to Izmir arrive in the middle of the night. We have three children with us, which limits the options. I was thinking of booking a hotel in Izmir for that night near the airport, but we would probably need a taxi (are their taxis available at night?) Or should we rent a car and just drive on (are the rentals open at 3 am?) I would have preferred to rent in Selcuk, probably cheaper (?..) A bus or a train is probably out, with all the kids and the luggage, when does the earliest train or bus depart for Selcuk?

I would be very, very gratelful for any advice or info!!!

I don't think you will have any problems getting a taxi from Izmir airport at 3am as there are usually many flights arriving at that time from other countries . I think it might be better for you to arrange a private transfer though as you have 3 children and also luggage and it will probably be much cheaper and more comfortable . You could try searching on Google for Izmir airport transfers .

If I were you I would arrange my transfer prior to your arrival with the hotel you plan to stay at in Selcuk..they all do transfers to and from the airport about 50 minutes away...you dont want to be driving yourself at night even though it is not very far away...

whenever there are planes there will be taxis..however night rates will be higher...
