Istanbul Driving Stress Level: 7/10

Driving around Istanbul can be slow and most routes generally take considerably longer than maps of the city might suggest. Rush hours can be especially busy, with a number of bottlenecks causing traffic delays. Locals driving around Istanbul and Turkey tend to be fairly aggressive and ignore many traffic rules. Taxi drivers appear to rule the roads around Istanbul and regularly hoot their horns, touting for business.


Parking in and around central Istanbul is generally insufficient and there is a lack of covered parking garages. Many mid-range hotels close to the city centre either offer car parks or are sited close to parking areas. Street parking is also available in various locations, with parking meters nearby.
