October 7, 2020

  No Covid test required  
  No mandatory quarantine  

My boyfriend lives in the USA and I live in England. He flew direct to from LA to Istanbul and then from Istanbul down to Fethiye. I flew direct from London to Fethiye. When we booked, it wasn’t a country that either of us would have to quarantine for afterwards in our home countries.

However, Turkey was added to the UK quarantine list, so I had to isolate for two weeks when I returned. But worth it! Very cheap to stay in Turkey along with great food that was also very cheap. Great option for couples wanting to reunite but on a budget.
