hi, i planing my trip, so i woud like know how much money i have to leave extra for supplement. we want to go from istanbul to ankara by night train (ther is overnight and sleeper. i don't know the difference.). if someone went by these trains how much pay for supplements? after that we plan to go to izmir (and then to pamukkale). there are also two trains: izmir mavi tren and karesi express (nighte trains). the same question.
WITH IR (which is a waste for only travel in TR) or Balkan Flexi: ALL places in longdistance must be reserved-you get a coupon with your name on it Seats are free-but you can only reserve 1 sector at 1 time-from the station you are in at that time, also applies to this HiSpeed Beds-depends on couchette=kushet or sleep=yatakli, about 10 or 25/30€ extra Very soon there will be a new real Hi Speed link from ANKARA to KONYA The line now ending at Eskisehir will be extended to ISTanbul, when the MARMARAY tunnel to link Asya and Evropa will be opened in a year of 2-3
