I'll be visiting Istanbul for the first time in a few weeks. My hotel does not offer airport transfer (actually they do, but apparently they only have limosine service, which is too expensive).
What would be the best way to get a taxi from Ataturk airport to my hotel in Besiktas, Istanbul?
Should I book the Ataturk Airport Taxi from their website in advance? Or should I just find the taxi stand at the airport and just get one of these "normal" taxis from there? Is there anything that I should look out for or be wary off?
Many years ago I had a bad experience with a taxi tout at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in France (due to my own naivete and lack of research). Don't want to go through that again.
And what would be the typical taxi fares from Ataturk airport to the Besiktas area? Thanks.
