How to buy traveling bus tickets:
There are a lot of bus companies in Turkey and its not necessary to make reservations in advance, in popular tourist areas you can get the ticket on the same day you want to travel by just going to the bus terminal and buy a ticket to the coming bus. On the other hand and in case of special events or holidays you will have to book a ticket in advance because the buses might be fully booked.
There are many ways that you can follow to make a bus reservation; first, you can always telephone the bus company you want and reserve a ticket by giving them your name and the information they might ask for but you will have to do this a day before in order to make sure that there are available seats then you have to pick up the ticket from the bus terminal before the arrival of the bus. Second, you can tell the hotel to manage this for you if you are not able to do this on your own. The hotel will call the bus company on your behalf and make the booking for you.
