Buying Istanbulkart from Ataturk metro stationHi! I realize this is not a new topic ,however I would like a few points in relation to buying a Istanbulkart,clarified.
1.The machines are at the entrance to metro?
2. I have to purchase the Card from Istanbulkart machine for TL10, using a TL10 note.... or can I use other notes and get change from machine?
3.I then have to load credit,TL5,10,20 notes etc...at a different machine?ie not the same machine I bought my card from?
4.If this is the case,is the machine for loading credit clearly advertising this?
5.1 card can be used by 2 people as long as there is sufficient credit loaded for each person to swipe the card?
6.Once swiped to go through the turnstiles,is it also swiped again, when exiting through turnstiles at journey destination?
Thanks for your answers to my questions

1.Yes,from very visible machines.
2.The card is actually 6TL but by using a 10 you then have 4 TL credit automatically.If you use a 20 then you'll have 14TL credit.
3.Fill at the same machine.
5.Provided there is sufficient credit one card can be used for up to 5 people.
6.You only swipe it through as you enter the turnstiles,not on exit.
Aside from at the airports you will find points at many places all over the city where you can refill your card during your stay.
