Top Tips For Travelling To Turkey
We always suggest you check the FCO’s website in case of any unforeseen events that may occur before travelling.
Also, please remember that the EHIC is not accepted in Turkey, and so we would advise that you check the FCO’s Health Page which explains what to do in the event of a medical emergency. Our Emergency Medical Assistance Team is open 24/7, always contact them as soon as possible as they can help liaise with hospitals on your behalf.
Please ensure you have the correct visa for travelling to Turkey. The FCO’s website gives you the best places to purchase this before travel. We would advise doing this as it will save you time and money. If you do forget, you should be able to purchase this at the airport upon landing, but it is usually more money and you will have to queue twice, once to purchase the visa, and again for security to check your passport and visa. *
Things to do when visiting Turkey
Turkey generally has good weather the majority of the year, with April, May, September and October being the most pleasant. The summer months are extremely hot, and temperatures can reach between 35-40 degrees. A destination which is rich in amazing weather, culture and architecture, we recommend taking time out to go and see:
- The Blue Mosque – Istanbul
- The Apollo Temple – Altinkum
- Ephesus – Izmir Province
- Pamukkale – Denizli Province (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
Turkey is also known for its amazing cuisine, it’s not all about kebabs, although they are very tasty! With immense flavours that will infuse your pallet, why not try some traditional options such as:
- Su Böreği – Made from dough, and stuffed with cheese and spinach.
- Meze – Different dishes that you can have a little of each. Great to share!
- Pide – Known as the ‘Turkish Pizza’ and comes with a variety of toppings.
- Baklava – A traditional Turkish dessert, and not one to be missed – you can thank us later.
- Apple Tea – Virtually everywhere you go in Turkey you will be offered this, even shops! Luckily it is super yummy and you can have it hot or cold.

Key Contact Details and Important Information
In recent years Turkey has been victim to several violent incidents, which led to the FCO advising against travel to large parts of the country. However, the majority of the ban has now been lifted (for most parts excluding the area bordering Syria), meaning that tourists can safely travel to Turkey once again*. It is advised to check the latest FCO travel advice to find out whether it’s safe to travel to your destination. Remember, you will not be covered under your travel insurance policy if you travel against the FCO’s guidance.
