  1. Do you know if travel agencies get earlier access to booking the sleepers?
    I’ve noticed that sometimes right after booking opens all beds are available. But sometimes they are partly or already fully booked the minute after the booking opens.
    If so, do you know which agency to choose? Thanks 🙂


    1. Yes they have. Mainly for Dogu And Vangolu. Many organizes. Just google like ‘kars turu’. Note that they don’t sell only ticket but the whole package.
