Dalaman Airport (DLM) is the main international airport for the ones who are travelling to Dalaman region of Turkey including the popular holiday resorts of Marmaris, Fethiye and its surroundings.

How to Get from the Dalaman Airport to Your Hotel?

We can say that there are many options for you to get from Dalaman International Airport to your hotel in central Marmaris including Siteler and Armutalan, Icmeler, Turunc or any other holiday resort on the Dalaman region. Below we tried to explain them to help you make your decision regarding on your needs and budget.

Some Tips

  • Distance – For your info, Dalaman Airport is situated about 6 km. from Dalaman town centre and 96 km. from Marmaris city centre and it takes about 1,5 hours to get to Marmaris city centre from Dalaman Airport.

  • Turkish Liras – You can obtain currency exchange before traveling to Dalaman or on arrival. We recommend you to obtain Turkish Liras (TRY ot TL) in Turkey as the exchange rates are usually better in Turkey and you can find exchange offices in Dalaman airport and through whole Dalaman resorts. You may get TL from the many ATM machines located inside the Dalaman Airport's arrival, departure terminals and parking area. When you get Turkish liras we also recommend you to also have small banknots like 5 TL, 10 TL, 20 TL or 50 TL. You need to use cash for your transfer as many of the transfer options will not accept credit cards. And Turkish liras will benefit you more than foreign curencies as you may be confused with the calculation and many times foreign currencies will cost you much.

  • Your Hotel's Address – We recommend you to have your accommodation address and telephone number with you. There is big number of hotels in the Dalaman region so that you or taxi drivers may get confused. You may need to check your hotel address or call your hotel. For example there are two Hisaronu town in the Dalaman region, one belongs to Fethiye and the other to Marmaris.

  • Taxi

    Taking a taxi to get to your hotel is another option. Taxi ranks are located outside the terminal so you should walk some. You should know that Dalaman Airport is very far away from the majority of the holiday resorts in the Dalaman region (Marmaris is 96 km. away). Taxi drive from the Dalaman airport to Marmaris city centre would cost you aroud 190 TL. and it may cost you more depending where your hotel is, possible traffic and the taxi driver's possible drive to your hotel from different long routes.

    If you are a group or a family with kids or having lots of luggages with you, than we recommend you take the other options below. But if you decide to take a taxi anyways, than we recommend you to take them from the official taxi ranks located outside the terminal and stay away from the hustlers inside the airport terminal. You may also find the annual taxi fare list at the official taxi ranks. We recommend you to ask and pay in Turkish Liras, the taxi fares sometimes have big differences with the foreign currencies.

    There is also Dalaman Airport Taxi (Tel: +90 252 792 52 40) that you may use. Taxi fare for Marmaris is 190 TL / 60,00EUR / 50,00 GBP / 65,00 USD. We recommend you to ask and pay in Turkish Liras as you'll see that there is a big price difference in between TL and other currencies.

    Havas & Muttas Airport Shuttles

    There are two shuttle ring services named Havas (Tel: +90 444 0 487) and Muttas (Tel: +90 252 212 48 50) that are operating between Dalaman International Airport to Fethiye and Marmaris (2-ways). The fare for Fethiye is 17,50 TL and Marmaris is 20 TL per person, one way, luggage included. It takes about 60 minutes for Fethiye and 90 minutes to Marmaris depending on the traffic.

    Shuttle Route for Marmaris is; Marmaris Intercity Bus Terminal, Gokova, Koycegiz, Ortaca, Dalaman and Dalaman Airport.
    Shuttle Route for Fethiye is; Fethiye Intercity Bus Terminal, Gunlukbasi, Gocek, Dalaman and Dalaman Airport.

    You can find the routes and timetables on the official Havas website.

    Private Shuttle and Transfers

    If you are a group or a family with kids or having lots of luggages with you, than we highly recommend you to take private transfers for your hotel as they offer a fixed rate, comfortable and safe transfer to your hotel in Marmaris or in the Dalaman region. The Havas or Muttas airport shuttles will bring you to at the Intercity Bus Terminal of Marmaris or Fethiye and you'll need to take a taxi from there again which will harder for you with your kids and luggage. But private transfers drives you just to the entrance of your hotel.

    When you take private transfers, the driver also meets you inside the airpot terminal with your name written on a plate. And he accompanies you for the transfer and also he helps you with your luggages like where to take them and even carry them to the shuttle. And as there is a fixed price, you will not have to worry or deal with price calculations.

    As for private shuttle transfers from the Dalaman airport, we highly recommend KiwiTaxi as we recently booked with them had a gerat trip to our hotel. They have variety of different and good models of cars ranging from Micro for 3 passengers to Minibuses for 19 passengers and also offer child seats. They met us inside the airport, helped with our luggages, brought us in front of the hotel and there also helped us with our luggage.

    Summary of all

    Well as you see, there are several options to reach your hotel from Dalaman Airport and each has their own advantages. As a summary we can say and advice that;

  • If you are travelling alone or a couple, and don't have so much luggages, than you may take the Havas & Muttas Airport Shuttles and reach Marmaris Intercity Bus Terminal, and from there you may take a taxi to reach your hotel for 20 TL per person for shuttle plus taxi ride for your hotel which may make between 20-100 TL. depending where your hotel is. And if you hotel is very far away rom central Marmaris, than it will be expensive.

  • If you are travelling as a group of 4 people or more, or if you are a family with kids, than we recommend you to check the prices of airport taxis and reach your your hotel with them.
