Green Card cost please?

I'm intending to drive from the UK to Gulluk in mid April of next year and not being a sailor I will be doing the strictly overland route from France, Germany etc.
Apart from the fact that it seems that I can only have breakdown cover in the European side of Turkey, it also looks like I will be paying for a green card at the Turkish border as my insurer doesn't cover it.
To assist with my budgeting I would be grateful if anyone could give me an idea of the cost.I will be in Turkey for about two weeks.
Any other information is always gratefully received.

change your insurer - there are many companies in the UK who will give you green card cover ( free) . I am with Saga and I can get as many green cards as I wish for any stay up to 182 days.

Re: Green Card cost please?

I will be staying with my insurer because the savings I make insuring my cars courtesy of the discounts my daughter gets me (works for the company) massively outweigh a one off free green card.
So back to the original question please?

Yes - your call. However I wouldn't be as sure as you seem to be. My fully comp policy for a 2014 Vauxhall Zafira comes in at £135-for pure interest sake I will be curious to hear what you pay for your green card at the border.

Re: Green Card cost please?

I insure a Merc SLK with full NCB, Protected and with Legal cover and Full UK breakdown for £200 for wifey and me.
I insure a Citroen C1 for me, wifey, two daughters under 23 years with two years NCB, legal cover and full breakdown for £200 as well.
I can't match those figures anywhere else.
Saga wouldn't even get near I'm afraid.
The green card is a one-off and I will be keen to know how much for a couple of weeks.

Re: Green Card cost please?

I don't know the answer to your question but a point to consider is that green card only gives you third party cover.

You won't be getting any of your high falutin legal cover and breakdown cover.

Re: Green Card cost please?

Evening Mushroom,
Out of interest, had a trawl around and found information on Welcome to MIB (Motor Insurance Bureau)
but, as has been stated by others before, it seems that you insurer should supply one on request at no cost.
Joyce

Don't know how it happened but the website re-named itself in the post. Just Google 'Welcome to MIB' and it will show the site address.

Re: Green Card cost please?

Here is the Turkish AA website
INTERNATIONAL TRAFFIC INSURANCE (GREEN CARD)



The green card certificate is a green document isssued with an international format providing coverage as the international extention of motor third party liability insurance policy in countries participating in the green card system within the limits and legistation of the country of the accident in the frame of Strasbourg Agreement which was also signed by the Turkish Government.
Click for applicable countries!
Green Card fees and expiry dates for passenger vehicles are stated in the chart below. For other type of vehicles please click

Türkiye Turing ve Otomobil Kurumu

On the MIB website
[Green Card

The Green Card is an international certificate of insurance providing visiting motorists the minimum compulsory insurance cover required by the law of the country visited. A green card is not compulsory for all countries in the Green Card System.

Responsibility for issuing Green Cards is given to national organisations (in the UK that is MIB). Many national organisations, including the MIB, allow insurers to print and issue their own cards in the interests of efficiency.

No charge is made for a Green Card. However, if cover is increased at the same time the Green Card is issued, an insurer is entitled to make a charge for the extension of cover. Intermediaries are also entitled to charge for obtaining Green Cards for their clients.

Just to clarify- I am assuming your post refers to the green card cover bought on entry to Turkey. The green card cover bought for Turkey in the UK will be equivalent to your existing car policy cover in the UK.
