Traffic Insurance

Does anyone know where my husband can buy the basic Traffic Insurance for 3 months?

He bought 3 months insurance when he entered Turkey at the border but that has now expired and now he needs another 3 months - any help please?

BTW UK car

Re: Traffic Insurance

Where is the car now? What was the name of the company that issued the insurance at the border?

Re: Traffic Insurance

I sent an email with photo of last years 3 months policy to the address on the policy and got an extra 3 months insurance this year for 375 lira. Had to use either a credit card from a Turkish bank or a bank transfer from anywhere which was my only option. Got the policy emailed the next day.

Re: Traffic Insurance

We used to go into the local office of an agent who sold policies from the same insurer (for us it was Swiss sigorta).

Hi Maggiemay55 - Im afraid I had the same challenge, did loads & loads of research and eventually solved it.....

In short, we found that for foreigners bringing a foreign vehicle into Turkey, there are in fact very few insurance policies from outside Turkey which are accepted in Turkey - Saga UK do one, but I found that expensive so like you I bought the 3 month one at the border, which is of course the most anyone can buy unless they already have residency here.

Toward the end of my 90 days I visited numerous insurance agencies - all of which said they couldn't do it and that I had to go back to the border I came in at (which was Erdne - about 2 days drive away) to extend - bugger that I thought and kept trying....

Eventually I learnt from one Agent that there are only 2 policies available if you are a foreigner driving a foreign registered car - both of which are Turkish Gov't policies and are sold by them under a special licence at the borders.

I then got the helpful Agent to contact my local border Agent and buy on my behalf through him.

It was a considerably higher cost than a standard Turkish one at more than 4,500TL for my motorhome (but is comprehensive and includes the essential element also).

Job done and bank balance hammered!

PM me if you need the agents contact details

Re: Traffic Insurance

Actually leo it sounds quite reasonable for kasko on a motorhome, did this include the third party (zorunlu) too?

Yes it does IA. i was comparing it to motorhome insurance in the UK which is normally quite a bit below standard car insurance.

For my car (recently sold) that was comparatively cheaper at 1,700 + 875 tl

Re: Traffic Insurance

I saw a post a long time ago on TLF Where a guy bought his insurance on the border and he was about 1000 miles into Turkey when he found out to renew he had to go all the way back too where he came in .
I don't know the outcome.

It is the same when driving from S Cyprus into TRNC, they will only accept Euros, it used to be 25 euros for one month cover.
