So practicalities may influence you decision.
Lots and lots of British tourists go to just about everywhere in Turkey so flights should be relatively cheap
to any on the main destinations including Bodrum.
Alas, finding these flights can be a nightmare and sites like skyscanner don't always come up with the best deal, or they come up with a silly routing like Manchester, Oslo, Preveza to save €10! 3.5 hours direct v 23 hours through Oslo to save €10? I don't think so!!
Making long journeys by road can be awful in Turkey and probably best avoided.
Try Thomascook Airlines, Thomson Airlines, Jet2 and Monarch in addition to EasyJet and Ryan.
Insurance... mentioned earlier in thread.... Try GJW. I paid a one off suplement for the journey and the only stipulations made were crossing Biscay during July-August.
Why would they want to restrict you to named ports
, it just introduces extra and needless pressure.
