Should you disagree with some of the provisions herein, you can either leave the Website (although we’ll be sad to see you go!), or contact us at [email protected].

Modifications

Getting Around Turkey is a work in progress, meaning that a lot will change in the near future. We reserve the right to update the Website and these Terms of Service from time to time, at our discretion. We will make sure to announce any major change in a prominent way, but since “major” is a very subjective concept, we recommend that you periodically review the latest version.

Your continued use of the Website following the publishing of updated Terms of Service means that you accept and agree to the changes.
