As an owner of a property in Kalkan, this site seemed an excellent way of keeping in touch, especially as for much of the year I am not able to be out there.

UK - Turkey time difference reverts to 2 hours from Sunday PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 March 2018

Daylight Saving Time changesIn 2016 the Turkish government announced that it was pulling out of the biannual Daylight Saving Time (DST) protocol whereby countries advance their clocks by an hour in spring and fall back by an hour at the end of summer.

Last year on Sunday 29th October Turkey did not turn the clocks back by an hour.  Instead they are now maintaining DST all year long. 

This means that since Sunday 29th October 2017 Turkey has been 3 hours ahead of UK time.  However from Sunday 25th March 2018 there will be a difference of just 2 hours until the end of summer.

This is because on Sunday morning in the UK the clocks will spring forward by one hour whilst in Turkey nothing changes.  If you are in the UK you lose an hour in bed, whilst your friends in Turkey get a full night's kip! 

This perpetual variable time difference is something we are going to have to get used to.  We will have to think carefully about flight times - especially on the DST change dates in the UK, and particularly if you have a connecting flight in Istanbul. 

We also need to readjust to different TV viewing times and remember that it's only a two hour difference when video calling our family and friends back in the UK.  If you use the calendar in your computer or mobile device and you are travelling between the UK and Turkey you may like to check to see how your device deals with the time of any events or appointments you have created.
