I'm planning to arrive to Ankara by airplane soon, and then I will have to get to Kayseri by bus as soon as possible.

Should I buy bus ticket on the station, or online in advance (which option is better/cheaper)? My airplane lands at 5am.

Should I buy bus ticket on the station, or online in advance (which option is better/cheaper)?

I don't think the price will change. I would choose to buy ticket on the station, you can easily find tickets during those morning hours. You can use Kamil Koç or Süha Turizm as a firm. The downside of buying the ticket online is that you may be late for the bus due to traffic. But if you buy a ticket for 2-3 hours after you get off the plane, I think it will be okay.

For Esenboğa Airport to AŞTİ (Ankara intercity terminal) you have 2 options; public transport or taxi.

With public transport, you can use Belko Air (preferably 442-A, if not 442-K but this takes more time) or Havaş. They probably take 60-80 minutes to reach AŞTİ and you will pay 12 Turkish Lira.

With taxi, it probably takes 30-40 minutes (depends on traffic) and you will pay around 150 Turkish Lira.

Here is the root that Google Maps show from Esenboğa Airport to AŞTİ Terminal: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Bal%C4%B1khisar+Mh.,+Ankara+Esenbo%C4%9Fa+Havaliman%C4%B1+(ESB),+%C3%96zal+Bulvar%C4%B1,+Akyurt%2FAnkara/A%C5%9Fti+Terminali,+Emek,+%C3%87ankaya%2FAnkara/@40.0146368,32.7434776,11z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x40820fdad0c982a9:0xf13ed2bab75c76d6!2m2!1d32.9916726!2d40.1244399!1m5!1m1!1s0x14d34f3684a62bc3:0x3b6e737435e4e8d7!2m2!1d32.8144643!2d39.9181567!3e0

  • Even if you're late, most bus companies allow free cancellation up to an hour before so you should be able to cancel and rebook in time. Commented Apr 13, 2022 at 21:43
