Budget-friendly shuttles from Istanbul Airport, Havaist Bus, and Havaist Shuttles run every half-hour and arrive in Beyazit Square (Grand Bazaar Tram Station). Havaist Airport Shuttles run every 40 minutes from and to Istanbul's new airport, taking you to Taksim Square. On your way back to the airport, you can see them on Beyazit Grand Bazaar Square.
You can pay cash; however, you will need to convert at the airport to pay in Turkish Liras. We recommend that you get Istanbulkart because you will need it to use public transit in Istanbul during your vacation. You can find detailed instructions on buying, top-up, and refund your Istanbulkart account on our Istanbulkart page. In addition to Istanbulkart, you can download the Havaist Shuttles App and utilize it to make public transportation payments. It could be better, but it gets the job done.
