We tip in Lira, usually 20/30TL depending on the journey but pay in sterling.

Depends on how hair raising the transfer is..if it's a white knuckle ride I deduct the cost of laundry from the tip ..so they get nothing >:D

When Erdogan stopped shops from selling alcohol after 10pm and places within a certain distance of the Mosque, he also banned petrol stations from selling alcohol. That was the case certainly in the first couple of years, as we missed what used to be BH’s first Efes at the service station with the pool. We just dont stop now, so not sure whether things have slipped back or whether the ban still holds HAs anyone purchased alcohol after 10pm..? Again we just dont try, so dont know if this is still upheld too.

Stopping for that Efes was a must-do when it took three days to go from Dalaman to Kalkan.  Quite apart from other urgent issues…

Then again, in the days of Tapestry, we arrived in daylight, now many of the flights arrive well after dusk, often landing at or after the 10pm cut-off time anyway!

Now the drivers stop for a nicotine fix - which is just bloody annoying, 'cos they don't always ask first!

One year they avoided the tunnel completely, using the old road over the top, so they could pocket the tunnel fee (transfer covered by the hotel, in case you were wondering).  Carlos Sainz Lives!  At least on that transfer!!

You can buy alcohol in Kalkan after 10pm, from most of the small shops that sell alcohol. As a bonus we found that we often got better prices than the supermarkets.
