With such amazing history, architecture and culture, not forgetting the amazing Turkish cuisine on offer throughout the region, and sandy white beaches with clear blue sea, Turkey really does have a lot to offer as a holiday destination. Here at Holidaysafe, we offer an award-winning range of travel insurance policies for your trip to Turkey, designed to protect you against unforeseen events.
When purchasing a policy from us you will always enjoy the following benefits:
Remember to select ‘Europe’ to be covered for travel 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. *

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.
