Dalaman Airport International And Domestic Arrivals Hall

Clean, effective and good, but not where it saysOnce located, easy to pick up and drive off/return. Friendly and engaging team with an informal approach to car hire. The cars are good but quite scratched, they are only concerned with bumps apparently.They are not in the terminal where indicated so some additional directions would have helped avoid a stressful arrival. I would still use them again, but people should be aware that they must leave the terminal and head to the central meeting point just near the car park. There you are met by someone using a sign with your name and then walked over to the car park area. They should also advise that you will need to pay the car parking fee of 10-15 TRY, so get some cash out in arrivals (we used one just outside the airport arrivals).
They were very unfriendly and didn't help with a particilur situatuion that the company right next to it. CARPLUS immidiately fixed for me.

The car was clean, and it was a fair car for the price.The paperwork was all completed at a station inside the airport, that went fairly smooth. After the paperwork is completed, they had you a slip, and you proceed outside about 300 meters to take delivery of the vehicle. This is where the frustration began. When we got to where we pick up the car, there was no Budget representative present. The pickup is at a van that says Avis/Budget. An employee from Avis said the Budget guy would be back in 5 minutes. After 15 minutes I noticed the car and key that were listed on our contract were sitting directly in front of us, there was just no employee there to hand us the key. Not a single customer had been by in that time, neither to Budget or Avis. Customers began to show up. The Avis guy helped 3 customers; all of which showed up at least 15 minutes after us. There were now 2 additional customers waiting for Budget. The Avis representative then said he would help us. After helping another customer coming in for a drop off, he did then help us. It took him about 5 minutes to inspect the car and have me sign the form. The Budget representative had never showed up. The car was great, the price was fair, however, I do expect that there is an employee that can deliver the car. And, if the Avis representative can assist Budget customers, he should have done that in the 15 minutes that we sat next to each other while he was doing nothing.
Booking car hire at Dalaman Airport is a good idea if you want the freedom and convenience of reaching specific destinations in a timely manner. There is no public transport serving Dalaman Airport and the airport shuttle bus operates a reduced service to the two main tourist destinations in the region, Marmaris and Fethiye. Furthermore, getting around by taxi may end up being more expensive than a day's car hire, so, all in all, it's worth driving yourself.
Local car hire companies at Dalaman Airport might offer cheaper rates and more 'no-frills' packages to drivers, but they also have smaller representation in the surrounding cities. So, if you're planning on exploring the ins and outs of the region, you may choose to go with a more established provider as they can assist you on the roadside if anything should happen.
Go for a larger car model if you can afford it. An average rental car size at Dalaman Airport is typically smaller than the European average. So, if you're travelling with friends or family, a medium car may be too small for more than two adults, particularly in the summertime. Instead, if you book a larger car model, you'll be able to travel more comfortably, and you'll have room for more luggage, too.
It's really simple to return your car hire at Dalaman Airport. As you approach the airport from the direction of Dalaman on road D555, look out for road signs indicating the airport exit. There shouldn't be any distractions as there aren't many towns in the near proximity but do make sure you take the right turn. Then, simply drop off your vehicle in the car park and hand over the keys at your provider's desk.

FAQs about hiring a car at Dalaman Airport
The car rental companies at Dalaman Airport are all located in the Arrivals Hall in the International Terminal. If you've come to Dalaman Airport via a domestic flight, you'll need to find your way to the international section. Ideally, you will have booked your car hire in advance to secure the best possible deal, but you can also book on arrival. Many providers will have the vehicle available for you in the car park, which is a few minutes' walk from the terminal.
You need to have a driver's licence, a form of photo ID and a valid credit card. Most car hire providers will only lease to you if you're 21 years old or older. Some companies will only lease to you if you are 27 to 28 years of age, if it is a luxury car you are interested in. They may also ask that a year or two have passed since getting your driver's licence.
You can only rent a car if you have a credit card in your name. This is so the car hire company can take a security deposit from you until you safely return the vehicle. You'll need the credit card when you first make your booking, and then again at the desk to confirm your identity along with the driver's licence. Do read your rental agreement carefully to understand what amount will be charged to your credit card and when the supplier will do this.
If the contract requires you to refill the tank before drop-off, be aware that there isn't a huge selection of petrol stations in the vicinity of Dalaman Airport. However, your closest one is only a 5min drive away – it's called Opet Petrol Station and it is located on Dalaman Airport Road.
