Virtually every hotel, pension and gift shop in Kaleici can help you to rent a car.
One good little local company is Kale Rent a Car, in Kaleici, a few steps from the Kesik Minaret. It is run by two brothers, Hamit and Halit Demir. Kilicarslan Mahallesi, tel & fax +90 (242) 248 0869.
Small local rental companies may have lower rates. They may have decent cars adequate for sightseeing in the immediate area, but if you wander farther afield you may want the security of a larger company with multiple offices and larger staff. If you have a mishap or breakdown, a larger company will be able to come to your aid more quickly and expertly.
Turkish rental cars tend to be smaller European and Asian models with standard (manual) transmission and radio. They are good for two to four adults, or two adults and one or two children, and not a lot of luggage. Their small engines make hauling four adults and their luggage a slow process. More expensive cars are larger, more comfortable and more powerful.
