Prices for tours

Where to look for cheap tours to Turkey – 2022? We bought a trip on the Travelata website. Another similar site is They compare tour prices from all tour operators, finding the cheapest options.

To save money, check out their tour promo codes page. There are discounts of up to 2,000-3,000 rubles to Turkey.

These are the minimum prices in rubles for tours with a flight from Moscow for two people:

Prices for tours to Turkey 7 nights 11 nights 14 nights
February 22000 26100 32800
March 25600 34300 35000
April 25100 29600 36000
May 26300 34500 37600
August 38400 45800 49200
September 39100 44600 46800
October 36600 45000 47200
November 41200 53500 47900

According to my personal observations, tours for summer – 2022 are about the same as last year. But the prices for tours in the fall have increased significantly: before it was possible to relax in Turkey for 25-30 thousand rubles for two, and now the minimum prices start from 40 thousand rubles.

Alanya is considered the cheapest of Turkish resorts; the cost of tours to other destinations is usually a little higher.

You can view the cost of tours to all resorts in Turkey through price comparison services:

Tourists give good feedback about individual tours (the cost for 1-6 people):

    – 69 euros – 44 euros – 44 euros

In other Turkish resorts the prices for similar excursions are about the same.

ℹ️ Where to buy tours? We compared the price of excursions at hotel guides and when buying online (on Tripster and Sputnik8). The prices do not differ much, but they are a little lower on the internet.


How much does it cost to visit the sights in Alanya on your own:

In some places you can bargain. For example, we got into a conversation with the organizer of paragliding flights at Cleopatra beach and he cut our price from 50 to 30 euros.

Transport in Alanya is represented by buses and cabs. You can also rent a car or a bicycle.


All official cabs are yellow and must have a meter. The price for a ride is made up of two factors:

  • The cost of boarding – 3-4 liras
  • The price per 1 km – 3-3,5 lira

Some cab drivers ask for a fixed fare. It’s usually higher than if you go by the meter, so it’s better not to agree.

If you plan a trip in advance (for example, from the airport or from one city to another), it is more convenient to order a transfer. We used the service Kiwitaxi, and we were satisfied.


The cheapest transport is the bus. The fare in Alanya and its suburbs (Mahmutlar, Kestel, etc.) costs 4 lira. The ticket is paid to the driver when boarding the bus.

There are large municipal buses and small dolmushi buses. The price doesn’t depend on the type of bus.

Rent a car

If you have a driver’s license and want to explore the city and surroundings on your own it’s better to rent a car.

The cost of renting a car depends on the class of the car and starts at $ 20 per day.

For your information: the prices for rental cars from different car rental companies can be compared on the Rentalcars website. If possible, it is better to book a car in advance, because in the high season the necessary models may not be available.

Rent a bike

A good way to explore Alanya on your own is to rent a bike. There is a promenade along the sea throughout Alanya that is great to ride on.

Bicycle rentals are occasionally found along the promenade, but we found the bikes in those rentals to be bad. We rented bikes from Martin Turkay Rentals in downtown Alanya (address and point on the map).

The prices in this rental:

Cafes and Restaurants

There are many cafes and restaurants in Alanya. In establishments near the sea and popular attractions, the cost of food is usually slightly higher.

How much it costs to eat in a cafe in Turkey in 2022:

  • An average meal in a cafe – 30 lira
  • Dinner for two at a restaurant – 120 Liras
  • McDonalds combo set – 27,5 lira
  • draught beer (0,5 l) – 25 lira
  • 14,5 lira for a cup of coffee (cappuccino)
  • bottle of Coke/Pepsi (0,33 l) – 5 lira

In general, lunch or dinner in a restaurant in Turkey will cost noticeably cheaper than in Russia.

For example, we ate at the popular Kale Panorama Café with a good view of the city during our tour of Alanya Fortress. Lunch for two cost 140 liras:

  • pasta carbonara – 34 lira
  • Ottoman kebab – 66 lira
  • soft drinks – two 15 lira each.
  • We left another 10 lira as a tip.

Prices for specific dishes in restaurants in Turkey – 2022:

Our experience. We vacationed in Turkey on an all-inclusive package, but we still often went to the stores and supermarkets. We bought fruit, ice cream, snacks, drinks – all the things we didn’t have in the hotel.

We mostly went to big Migros, but during our walks we also looked at small mini-markets – Sok, A101 and Bim.

On the average, we spent about 29 lira a day shopping in the supermarkets and markets. For 9 days of rest it took 260 liras in total.

Clothing in Turkey is cheap and of good quality. There are LC Waikiki stores in many tourist towns with a good selection and low prices. In addition to them, we bought things in the stores of the Turkish brand Koton.

Here are some examples of the prices of clothing in Turkey:

  • Women T-shirt – 25 lira
  • Men’s T-shirt – 25-30 liras
  • Men’s leather belt – 50 liras
  • 45 lira for a beach towel

Souvenirs in Turkey are sold everywhere: in markets, supermarkets, in small shops along the road.

If you are going to buy at the market, bargain. The original price can usually be reduced by several times.

Our expenses in Turkey

We vacationed in Turkey for 10 days on the trip “all inclusive”. During that time we spent 27000 rubles for two:

  • Supermarkets and markets – 2960 rubles
  • sights – 1130 rubles
  • Cafes and restaurants – 4,200 rubles
  • souvenirs – 2200 rubles
  • clothes – 3800 rubles
  • excursions – 8,650 rubles
  • transportation – 400 rubles

In addition, the cost was only for the trip – 68000 rubles for two people. The total vacation in Turkey for 10 days cost us 95000 rubles.

We spent 1-2 days on our own to see most of the sights of Alanya. We took only one excursion – to Pamukkale and to Salda lake, for 58 euros on Tripster (although it was hard, it was better to go to Pamukkale from Kemer).

Side or Kemer: Where to spend your holidays in 2022?

Despite the all-inclusive meals on the trip, we ate at cafes 4-5 times, including once at the Antalya airport on the way back. We spent the most money in the restaurant “Panorama” with a view of Alanya – dinner for two cost about 1600 rubles.

On a side note: I told about all days of our vacation in Turkey with all prices and expenses on Yandex Zen channel. Read it if you are interested in specific numbers. You can start with the first article about Turkey.

How much money to take in Turkey?

The amount needed will depend on how you are used to spend your time. Most of the money will be needed for excursions, entertainment and souvenirs.

If you are going to Turkey on an “all-inclusive” trip for 7 or 10 days, I would advise to take 50-100 thousand rubles for two people. You will probably spend less, but it is always better to have some money in reserve.

If food at the hotel is not included in the price for the tour, lay even more money for cafes and restaurants.

How much does it cost to go to Turkey on your own?

If you plan to travel to Turkey on your own (rather than on a tour), you need to include the cost of airfare, lodging and insurance.

Air tickets

A round trip flight from Moscow to Antalya costs 13-15 thousand rubles in the summer months (June-August) and 10-12 thousand rubles in the fall months (September-November).

Flights to Antalya from the regions are usually 20-40% more expensive – up to 20-25 thousand rubles for a round trip.

You can find out the cost of flights to Turkey and buy tickets from your city on Aviasales.


Prices for hotel accommodation in Turkey start from 1000 rubles per day for 3 stars and from 2500 rubles per day for 5 stars. As a rule, the closer the hotel is to the sea, the more expensive it is. You can compare hotel prices via Hotellook.

You can rent an apartment directly from the owners through Airbnb. Prices for good options with a kitchen and a bedroom start at 1000 rubles per day.

The insurance

The prices for tourist insurance with coverage up to $30,000 start at 60 rubles per day. You can compare the prices of different insurance companies through the Cherehapa service.

For example, if you are going to Turkey on your own for 10 days from Moscow, in addition to the expenses on the spot (café, entertainment, etc.) you should put another 20000-45000 rubles for tickets, accommodation and insurance (per person).

How to save money in Turkey

How to save money on a vacation in Turkey:

  1. Go to Turkey not in summer, but in the velvet season (May or September-October). At this time, too, the weather is good, but prices for hotels and tours are markedly lower. The sea may not be too warm, but there is no exhausting heat.
  2. Buy tours and stays at an early booking to pay less money. Read our guide on how to buy cheap tours.
  3. Haggle at markets and private stores (the same applies to entertainment on the beach). The original price can often be reduced significantly (up to 2-3 times).
  4. Buy tours not at the hotel, and the local agencies or on the Internet – the prices are lower, and the quality is not worse.
  5. Order a travel sim card to save money on the Internet abroad. We used Drimsim card, the internet worked well.

Important tip: almost everywhere in Turkey you can pay in liras, dollars or euros. It is always better to pay in liras, because the sellers round up the exchange rate to the worse.

Example: The exchange rate of 1 euro = 7.7 lira. At the market for 1 kilo of peaches you will be offered to pay either 7 lira or 1 euro (7.7 lira). So, if you pay in foreign currency you may overpay 5-10% each time.
