Re: insurance in turkey

the simple answer is no as the paperwork has the name of drivers allowed to drive

Re: insurance in turkey

As far as I know, it's the car that is insured, not the drivers.

Mr Familiar - can I please be nosy and ask the reasons for you taking insurance out in Turkey rather than in the UK ? Is it because you are resident in Turkey.

Re: insurance in turkey

As you are tailking about a UK car then it would be insured with UK insurance and a green card to cover Europe and turkey, there would be no reason to insure it in turkey, and don't forget it can only stay in turkey for 6 months...

Re: insurance in turkey

it depends on the registration plate
a turkish owned and registered car the car is insured, a yabanci car (USUALLY MB plate) only immediate family with same name and named driver, no turk allowed to drive, a foreign registered vehicle, green card and insurance at border 6 months maximum stay allowed.

"green card and insurance at border"
THAT,S THE KIND OF MIXED MESSAGES THAT I AM REEIVING.
DO I HAVE TO INSURE AT THE BORDER OR MY GREEN CARD FROM UK WILL BE ENOUGH.
THE CAR IS IN MY WIFE,S NAME BUT BOTH OUR NAMES ARE IN THE INSURANCE POLICY.
IT IS A UK REGISTERED CAR AND WE ARE NOT RESIDENT IN TURKEY .JUST VISITING.
