Search & Book

According to the fare rules, tickets are on sale for this price until May 16, 2022 for travel between September 2022 and March 31, 2023. A minimum stay of two days applies, the maximum stay is six months.

Sadly, neither Google Flights (shows no dates) nor the ITA Matrix (shows all dates) are reliable when it comes to finding the cheap tickets. You have to fool around a bit in our flight search or on Turkish Airlines’ website.

Outbound flight dates

  • October 11
  • October 18
  • October 25
  • November 1
  • January 31

Inbound flight dates

  • November 9
  • November 16
  • November 23
  • November 30
  • February 8

In general, combining a Tuesday outbound with a Wednesday inbound seems to be a good way to get the cheapest tickets. Tickets on Turkish Airlines’ website start at €385.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:

  1. The Covid-19 Pandemic
    During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.

    Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
  2. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

    This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  3. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
