    Turkey – the absolute leader of foreign destinations on package tours . Use the services of a tour operator here is much more profitable than to organize an independent travel.

    Why is it so? First, a charter flight costs a lot less than a regular flight. Secondly, tour operators are not afraid that they will not sell tours (Turkey is always in demand!), Therefore do not hesitate to buy whole packs of rooms in hotels. Third, so historically it was formed that all the major tour operators are “Turkish roots. Therefore Turkey will always be the country number 1 for our tourists value for money.

    If you want to spend less money in Turkey, choose the tour “all inclusive”. It will be more expensive by 3000-10000 rubles than with breakfast, but it will still be more convenient and profitable than going to the restaurant or cafe every day. Proven over the years.

Even in low season it is difficult to find tours to these hotels cheaper than 55,000 rubles per person, and in summer the prices go up by 50-100%. One of our favorite hotels Rixos Sungate 5* costs for a week minimum 69.450 rubles/person, Rixos Premium Belek 5* from 84.420 rubles/person, Alva Donna Exclusive 5* from 49.450 rubles/person, Papillon Ayscha 5* from 54.120 rubles/person.

    How much money to bring to Turkey for food

    Turkish cuisine with lots of meat and vegetables, hearty and tasty. The quality of food here is high, a lot of locally produced products. Cafes and restaurants are widespread in Turkey, where locals go, but for some reason only men. The cheapest cafes, where they do not sell alcohol (içkisiz), here you can order a hearty three-course lunch for 18-35 TL. Prices are much higher at the resorts. Of the cheap food, kebabs, burgers and pizza are common.

    Unfortunately, at all-inclusive hotels you won’t get even 10% of Turkish food. The whole cuisine is adapted for tourists. So for the real Turkish food you have to go to local restaurants. Prices in cafes and restaurants in Turkey are lower than in Moscow. For example tea 2 TL, Turkish coffee 5 TL, water 1-3 TL, Coca Cola 3-7 TL. An English breakfast will cost 15-20 TL, lunch 40-60 TL, salad 10-25 TL, a hot meal 18-30 TL.

    Beloved Alanya

    A standard “Turkish” breakfast (kahvaltı) is bread and butter, cottage cheese, olives, boiled egg and a few slices of tomato and cucumber. Turks are very fond of breakfast and often invite friends or relatives for a Big Breakfast on Sundays. They often go to cafes where you can order a “Turkish” breakfast for 10 liras.

    Kebabs are not always available to take away. Here you can order them in a cafe with tables and chairs. Turkish kebabs are wrapped in durum, a local tortilla-like flatbread. The kebab costs 10 TL. In Turkey, they sell sandwiches – a slice of baguette with various fillings (most often with lamb offal or fish). In coastal towns you can try deep-fried mussels (midye tawa) and midye dolmas (mussels stuffed with rice, pine nuts and chilli). Street carts sell pilav nohutla (chickpea pilaf) and roasted chestnuts. Pide – flat, pizza-like bread stuffed with various toppings. It comes in kasharli or peynirli (with cheese), jumurtali (with egg), kamili (with minced meat), and sujuklu (with sausage). A pide costs from 7 TL. You can also eat our usual manty in Turkey, served with yogurt, spices and pepper oil.

    There are different types of public places. Restaurants serve meat dishes (izgara yemek) à la carte. Shashlik houses (Kebapcıs) traditionally specialize in kebabs, the menu is small – salad, yogurt and a few desserts. There are cafes with a big menu – soups, all kinds of kebabs, kefte (meatballs), lahmajun (flat pizza with spicy minced meat) and pide. There are canteens (lokanta) that sell pre-cooked food that is kept warm. Here you can also find sulu emek, a hearty meat or vegetable stew. There are restaurants that serve only soups, çorbacı. A lunch at a fish restaurant will cost from 100 TL without drinks. How much money should I take to eat in Turkey if you’re not all-inclusive? Approximately 20-50 euros per day.

    Markets

    In the markets in Turkey you can buy products very cheap . For example ripe cherries 2.5-7 TL, tomatoes 1.5-3 TL, cucumbers 1.5-3 TL, 4 pieces of corn 5 TL, watermelon 1 TL, melon 1.5 TL, a bunch of greens 1.5 TL, potatoes 1 TL. How much money should I take in Turkey to buy food at the market and cook by myself? 10 to 30 euros a day.

    How much money to take in Turkey for alcohol

    If you are not all-inclusive and you buy alcohol in a store in Turkey, local beer costs 14 TL, pomegranate and blackberry wine 36-50 TL, whiskey 1 liter 100-350 TL. A popular alcohol among locals is raki (anise vodka), a 0.7 liter bottle costs 70 TL. Also to the Turkish flavor can be attributed boza. Not everyone will like this drink made from fermented grains, but the locals drink with pleasure, especially in winter. It costs up to 10 TL.

    Hamam

    Every hotel and street in Turkey has a hamam . As they say in the ads, you should definitely go to the hamam at the beginning of your vacation for an even tan. In general, many tourists make sure to include the hamam in their “cultural program”.

    The average cost in Turkey is $ 20-30, but it depends on the insolence of the Turks and the services included. For example to go to a good Turkish hamam in Marmaris for $ 20, in Alanya also for $ 20. Get a complex of health treatments in Alanya can be for $ 30. To spend 2 hours in the hamam in Side is possible for $ 21, with a massage for $ 25. There is no point in going more than once, if only for a massage. An hour massage costs from $20 to $150.

    Reviews

    We spent $500 for 2 people for 2 weeks, the hotel was all inclusive. We took excursions to Cappadocia ($ 70 each), a climb up the Tahtali Mountain (also 70 dollars), a hamam (20 dollars), and we spent the rest on wine, oil, souvenirs and clothes. We brought home a whole suitcase.

    We took a car in Turkey, two adults and a 4 year old child. In 3 days we drove around the neighboring resorts and all the attractions. We don’t like to drive far. It took us $100 for the car, another $40 for gas. This is still more profitable than taking tours from a tour operator.

    I do not take more than 150-200 euros to Turkey, if everything is included. In principle, if you do not go anywhere, you can not spend anything at all. You should walk in the nearest town during the day, it’s free, and you can eat and drink only in the hotel. Entertainment in the hotels is also there, animation, evening shows, it’s enough for a lazy holiday.

    Now you know how much money to take in Turkey in 2022, if “all inclusive” or “off”. :) Of course, if you are going to buy leather and fur, you should take a few thousand euros. You can buy a leather jacket from 350 euros, rabbit fur coat from 400 euros, mink from 700 euros. If you just want to look at the sights and buy souvenirs, you can spend your holidays in Turkey quite reasonably.

    By the way, it took me 200 euros for the week. But of those 120 euros I spent on massages and hamam :) .

    Economical vacation

    Let’s see how much money we need for the most economical vacation in Turkey. But let’s remember that despite all its “Spartan”, we should still like it!

    12,000 ₽ – that’s how much the cheapest trip to Turkey for 7 nights per person costs. Find on Travelate last minute tours for 25-30 thousand for two people is easy even in the high season, and if you’re lucky it’s even cheaper. For this money you will be relaxing in a hotel like this: Yaman Life 3 * or similar. The cost of the tour may even include breakfast, but most likely it will be without food. For example, we once flew to Turkey for a week of vacation in the middle of summer for only 33,000 ₽ for two. We stayed in a pretty nice, albeit simple, Orange Garden apartment hotel in the center of Kemer at the time.

    The cheapest plane ticket to Turkey cost ₽8,000. For such money you can fly from Moscow to Antalya or Istanbul and back, but without baggage. It’s cheapest to fly in the off-season. Low prices are also common during the summer, but try to catch them!

    4,000 ₽ is enough money for a week’s stay in a modest hotel or guesthouse in the resorts. For example, Star Palace 3* in Antalya.

    6,000 ₽ – that’s how much money you will spend on food for a week of vacation in Turkey. This money is enough to eat tasty and nourishing soups, salads and kebabs in the cafe for the locals, buy fruit, sweets and dairy products for breakfast and dinner. Do you think this money is not enough? It is enough, do not doubt! We found this out for ourselves on a holiday in Kemer.

    2,000 ₽ is the budget for independent sightseeing. For this money you will visit a couple of ancient ruins around the resort or other inexpensive museums and complexes. Expenses for public transportation are also included.

    1,000 ₽ is for emergency household expenses. For example, buying a tube of panthenol for flaming skin.

    1,000 ₽ for magnets.

    So how much money do you need for an extremely frugal vacation in Turkey in 2022? Prepare a minimum of ₽22,000 per person. Holidays in Turkey even cheaper is possible only in two cases: either very lucky with last minute tours, or have to rest in the style of Bear Grylls on the verge of survival. Learn more about cheap vacations in Turkey.

    Our personal experience. A couple of years ago we flew to Turkey on a last minute tour. For a week of rest we spent a total of 50,000 rubles for two. For this money we had a great vacation, without any tangible impairments in terms of comfort. As a part of the tour package we received direct charter flights, accommodation in a standard apart-hotel, group airport transfers. Additional expenses included meals, scooter rentals, gas, entrance fees, transportation, and small purchases.

    Our hotel Orange Garden in Kemer. This is what inexpensive Turkish hotels look like. And this is what an inexpensive Turkish breakfast looks like outside of all-inclusive hotels. It’s delicious beyond belief! And not every restaurant boasts such a glorious view.

    Comfortable vacation

    After numerous trips to Turkey, I imagine and estimate a comfortable vacation in this country as follows:

    40,000 ₽ – the cost of a week’s trip to a good “five” on “all inclusive” per person. On Travelate you can easily buy a tour at this price during the holiday season, but in the summer, such a vacation will cost one and a half to two times more expensive. Learn how to buy tours cheaper.

    I can recommend cool hotels, where we liked:

      in Antalya, Lara district. It has its own sandy beach, water park, spa, two tennis courts and a huge area with pools and entertainment for children. in Alanya. It is a stylish, cool, intelligent hotel near the center. For adults only. There is spoiled seafood and live music in the lounge. in Side. A large and stylish hotel designed for Russian speaking people. Suitable for both young people and vacationers with children. Read our review on this hotel.

    15,000 ₽ – that’s how much airfare to Turkey if you buy not on sale. Direct flight, baggage included. It’s cheaper to fly with Pobeda, slightly more expensive with S7 or Aeroflot.

    20,000 ₽ is the cost of a week’s rest in a good “five” on “all inclusive” in Turkey in the holiday season or in late spring per person. Accommodation and meals at a decent hotel costs from $ 70-80 per night for two people, but in the summer prices are doubled. For this money you get a pleasant and comfortable holiday. Tested personally in different resorts.

    10,000 ₽ is a week stay in a boutique hotel in the old city of Antalya with an excellent rating and reviews of tourists. For example, La Casa Carina or Saye Konak. An option for those who are not interested in huge Turkish resorts and their all-inclusive hotels. A room in a nice boutique hotel costs from $40 per night for two, but will be more expensive in summer.

    20,000 ₽ is the budget for food. Why would you want an all-inclusive hotel when, with only about ₽3,000 per day per person, you can enjoy delicious Turkish food? With such a budget, you’ll dine in decent cafes, dine in seafood and wine restaurants, indulge in ice cream and baklava daily, and eat plenty of fresh fruit. Check out the prices of food in Turkey.

    21,000 ₽ is how much you will spend on excursions. For 250€ on Tripster you can afford to do a lot of interesting things! You can visit Cappadocia, take a hot air balloon ride, visit the Green Canyon and the luxurious beaches of Suluada Island, walk through the old city of Antalya with a good guide. Read about the best tours in Turkey.

    4,000 ₽ – car rental for 4 days plus gas per person. Be sure to rent a car! It will be comfortable to drive to the nice beaches, ancient ruins and shopping. A good car with an automatic will cost you just 21€ a day – the price we paid. Read more about car rentals in Turkey.

    10,000 ₽ – that’s enough money to buy souvenirs for yourself and your loved ones, as well as small household expenses and transportation.

    And now let’s count how much money we need:

    • 75,000 ₽ if you fly with a travel package.
    • 70,000 ₽ if flying on your own to an AI hotel.
    • 80,000 ₽ if flying on your own without AI.

    That is 70-80 thousand per person is the budget for a comfortable holiday in Turkey in 2022. I advise to rest in the Indian summer. So you’ll get more comfort for less money and will not suffer from the summer heat. Find out what a good holiday is in September and October.

    Like a king

    Turkey will please even the most spoilt by beautiful rest of tourists.

    200,000 ₽ for a 7 night stay at Maxx Royal Belek Golf Resort 5* per adult. You will stay in a suite overlooking the sea, and with any questions (say, would you like strawberries and cream at 3 am) will be helped by a personal assistant. The food will be “all inclusive” and the alcohol will be of the highest quality. Jamon, cheeses from France, salmon from Norway, red caviar – all this is served to the hotel guests in unlimited quantities. The territory is vast, with its own golf courses and plenty of entertainment for children. And for those who are not enough, the hotel has villas in the “Maldivian style”. Their guests, by the way, enjoy free helicopter shuttle to and from the airport. Judging by Bookings, accommodation on such a six-seat villa costs 300 thousand a day.

    Transport, entertainment, snacks, souvenirs, shopping and other expenses for this type of holiday will not count – there all terribly individual. You can set aside about 30-40 thousand ₽ per person for excursions – for this money on Tripster you will be organized individual tours to Pamukkale and Hierapolis, to the ancient ruins, Lake Salda, as well as a walk through the old city of Antalya and wine tasting.

    Total for a royal holiday in Turkey, you need to go at least half a million rubles.

    Our budget

    By tradition, I will tell you how much money we spent on vacation in Turkey. The amount turned out to be quite a lot, because the trip was long. It was in April-June 2021.

    We were so housebound during the pandemic that we went on our first post-coastal trip in earnest and for a long time. We spent 52 days in Turkey! We went there with the purpose to see the other part of Turkey, the part that was hidden from the eyes of most tourists with huge walls of hotels all inclusive. We were eager to see the true beauty of the country, so we planned a great auto tour with a route of 3000 kilometers. But we were looking for more than just adventure – after a gloomy and endlessly long winter in Perm and tiresome self-isolation, we really wanted to just relax from home cares and get a hefty portion of vitamins, lost in six months of life without sunshine.

    As a result, first we spent 15 days enjoying life on “all inclusive” in five-star hotels. Had a good rest, God willing! Then we traveled around the country for a month by rented car, and for dessert we stayed in apartments for a week. During this time we visited all major Turkish resorts, had a good time wandering the dusty roads of Cappadocia, went on a bunch of interesting excursions Tripster, visited more than twenty ancient ruins and many other interesting places. That’s such an unusual vacation we had! And no wonder that on such a rich program had to spend a lot of money. In addition, all this experience allowed us to write for you a good hundred useful articles about Turkey.

    Let’s see how much our trip cost. All expenses are given for two and calculated at the rate at the time of the trip.

    Hotels AI 85 000 ₽
    Other hotels, apartments, houses 80 000 ₽
    Airfare 56 000 ₽
    Cafe 33 000 ₽
    Groceries, fruit, drinks 14 000 ₽
    Transfers 5 000 ₽
    Excursions 35 000 ₽
    Attractions . 18 000 ₽
    Car rental 55 000 ₽
    Fuel 11 000 ₽
    Parking lots and toll roads 500 ₽
    Spa: massage, hammam 9 000 ₽
    Buses 1 000 ₽
    PCR tests 14 000 ₽
    Insurance 1 300 ₽
    Medications 1 000 ₽
    Hotel theft 2 700 ₽
    Total 421 500 ₽
    Total in euros 4 850 €

    I will comment on some figures that may surprise and puzzle you a bit.

    We spent so much on airfare for two reasons. First, we live in Perm, which is not cheap for travelers. Second, we had to pay a lot more to fly there on the last flight due to the closing of flights to Turkey, and we even got back via Georgia. Read my advice on finding cheap airline tickets.

    We chose hotels pretty strictly during the whole vacation, which also increased the budget. But thanks to the off-season discounts and the pandemic, they were inexpensive, about two to three times cheaper than their usual summer prices. Check out 10 ways to book a hotel cheaper.

    How did we spend so little on food (47,000)? We must have fattened up in half a month on all-inclusive! Just kidding, only two pounds each. :) But seriously, during the lockdown the catering was just for take-away, so the food was purely technical (to boost your energy) and was not a purpose in itself. Plus, in the heat of the day one was not very hungry, and the constant travel did not always make it possible to eat properly and on schedule.

    Renting a car could have been half cheaper if we had taken an easier car. But since we were going to travel for a whole month, I took a fast, fresh and automatic car. However, it was still much cheaper than in the summer.

    We spent so little on insurance, because we have a free All Airlines card from Tinkoff Bank. But it is only valid for the first 45 days abroad, and we had extra insurance for the remaining days. Thanks to this card, as always, we saved a tidy sum.

    But we spent a lot of money on PCR tests: we took one test before the flight, then another one to fly to Georgia, and two more tests when we returned home. Thanks to our Rospotrebnadzor for taking such care!

    And these pictures will help you understand why we made such a difficult trip to Turkey.

    I’ll answer some frequently asked questions about prices in Turkey in 2022.

    How much does insurance cost to Turkey? From ₽400 per week per person with covid treatment coverage. You should definitely only go on holiday with TZR insurance.

    How much do excursions in Turkey cost? It’s most profitable to buy them on the service Tripster. Why you should not take excursions at tour operators and in the streets, I have already told.

    How much does a transfer cost in Turkey? Its cost depends on the distance, and whether it is a group or individual. We often use an individual transfer, as it is inexpensive and damn convenient. For example, we booked a car from Antalya city center to the airport for only 11€, and a transfer from Side to Antalya was only 20$. It is easy to book a car online. We use these sites: Intui.travel, Gettransfer.com or Kiwitaxi.ru.
