Glad you're still on here BL, I thought you'd gone quiet of late. Glad to see you back and there's nothing wrong with a change of scenery.
It will be good to hear your thoughts and experiences of pastures new compared to Kalkan. Sorry that your holiday wasn't as enjoyable this year though. We were out at the same time as you in June but I never saw a little Blue Lizard cross my path that I was aware of.  ;)

For the cost do not worry you can take a minivan rental and the price is lower with a company like 8rental.com who has very low transport rental packages.

Sounds interesting blue. Would it be cheeky to ask where it is that you’ve found new. Promise not to turn up and frown at what your wearing. I’ve never seen that in kalkan but I have read comments about it. We like to get away as much as possible but still enjoy kalkan for our relaxing holiday. Hope that continues. Regards

You will certainly compare things but sure you will.have just a good a time at your new holiday destination if not better. You have done 'your bit for Kalkan' BL over the years.  Enjoy pastures new

We have got money back from HSBC for our Thomas Cook flights (2 peeps, luggage and seats £676 booked In June) The night they announced they had gone bust I booked BA flights as I was at work on nights announced at 3 ..booked by 3.30 (aprox £850 for same ,similar daytime flight times etc so car booking was good still)
    After 30+ years we were getting a bit stale of Kalkan and were waivering and certain things whilst on our hols this year kind of made up our minds for us so we have decided on elsewhere..upshot is Equal/ Better standard of villa rental for £250 PW less,£100 saved on shorter transfer..we even got this years meet and greet parking £50 cheaper so have dragged back a fair whack on that plus the fact that prices are aprox 25% cheaper in restaurants etc (this year it was anyway)..Nooooo I hear you say, but tis true ..honest!
I can even wear a vest top without being peered at from over the top of glasses or whisperings from the elite ! >:D
Will I miss Kalkan? who knows
I will still be spying at whats going on on here :P

Deniz bank charge for receiving sterling but not lira so I always use TransferWise straight to my lira account with no charges. Very quick service.

I have been using TransferWise for the last couple of years. It has a fixed charge of just 65p for a transfer and gives a better exchange rate than you will get from the Turkish banks.

Another way is to bring cash with you, unlike here the Turkish banks are happy to deal with cash before I found Transferwise I would bring out £1,500 each time we visited which paid for the villas running and management costs.

Good look blue. We like the easyJet flight times. Tc and Jet2 have not been so good for us. Be interesting to see if they make them cheaper than their own other company easyJet. I smell a Cartel. Our 4 flights were at £1526 now at £2076. Mad
