Travel Insurance for trips to Turkey 

Turkey (Capital Ankara) is the doorway to Asia. Straddling the Bosporus the west side is in Europe, but the East is in Asia (Minor). Travel insurers regard the whole of Turkey as being in Europe for rating purposes and so rates for backpackers, over 65, over 70, over 75, over 80 will be relatively cheap as will family holiday insurance.

Countries Bordered By Turkey

Greece, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Bulgaria

Advice for travellers

As Turkey is a very popular tourist destination it is important to get advice from the FCO about problems. Their website is : http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/travel-advice-by-country/europe/turkey (in particular travellers should note any problems in the East of the country). Travelling to areas against the advice of the FCO may invalidate the travel insurance.
