Car Insurance in Turkey



Hi I was wondering if anyone could provide UPDATED information on car insurance for a UK car in Turkey? Any info on forums seems to be from a couple of years ago and worried things might have changed.

I understand I can get car insurance from the border 3rd party however DO NOT want 3rd party only for obvious reasons so will they provide comprehensive? If so, how much for three months?

I have contacted many Turkish insurance companies and so far all that have replied have said they cannot insure a UK registered car.

Please someone help

If you have a UK car and you have driven to the border then surely you must have UK insurance? the only other insurance you need is a green card to cover turkey which you can get from the UK but make sure it covers turkey and not just Europe, if not you can get a green card at the border but it is and can only be third party thats all a green card is.

Re: Car Insurance in Turkey

hello any car not registered in turkey is only eligible for third party so no fully comp from any turkish insurers which either can be included in your insurance or you have to buy separately from your insurance company when i contacted aviva last year they quoted me over 120 for six weeks in turkey where as 58 euros will buy you 3 months tp at the border

KKOB always just got his at the border as you would be surprised just how many insurers say "Yes you are covered for Turkey and the whole of Europe" then are gobsmacked when you tell them that Turkey is not counted as being in Europe.

Much much easier and very much cheaper to do it on entry to Turkey.

I pay 148 for my annual comprehensive car insurance with Saga. Twice per year I drive to Turkey and I get a 3 month Green Card (free) each time which covers me for Turkey on exactly the same basis as I am covered in the UK ie comprehensive
