POST AND PHONE IN SARIGERME
There is a Post Office in the Sarigerme Village. Business Hours are Monday-Friday 9am-5pm In Turkish POSTANE or Short PTT Post office has got Western Union service to send and receive money from abroad. You can send your Postcards or letters, buy stamps. Buy your stamps from the post office and you can save alot, rather then buying the stamps from the guy who sells you the postcards. In this way you can support the local post office and exprience in being in Turkish Post Office. Sofar as I know there is only one Post Office Officer working in this building, who delivers the post in the village, this is why you may find the building closed on unusual times.He is there in the mornings and in the afternoons. I have used myself numerous times this post office and do find it a very good service provider. If you do live in Sarigerme or around , you should know that you can pay more or less all kinds of bills at the post office.
What if you do need a Bank ? Get a Dolmush to Ortaca !
From the Holiday Village,Palace /SunTropical, and Hilton to the Village by Taxi is 10 TL or £5, in my oppinion you can enjoy the 15-20 minutes walk to the Village .Every 30 minutes there will be a Dolmush passing by or waiting at the maingate of your Hotel with a sign on the windscreen saying ORTACA.With this Dolmush you can get all the way to Ortaca for 4,50 Turkish Lira. Or simply ask the Driver to stop at the Village.Simply Say Stop Please10 Turkish Lira (£5) by Taxi (upto 4 person to/from Village) please be aware that Irresponsible driving is common amongst the taxi drivers, walk the 20 minutes distance to avoid irresponsible driving scenes.1 Turkish Lira (£0,40) (by Dolmus-Shuttle Bus to Village) 4.50 Turkish Lira (£1,70) (by Dolmus-Shuttle Bus to ORTACA TOWN ).
CASH MACHINE, ATM
There are 3 Cash Machines in Sarigerme ,these ATM's belong to Akbank, Garanti Bank, Deniz BankCash Machines in Sarigerme are located at the entrance of the Village,next to the Taxi stand
If they are temporarly out of order, it is not the end of the World, you can go to Towns of Dalaman or Ortaca, be aware that your bank may charge you for each transaction %2,75 .
