Secure Your Trip to Turkey with the Right Travel Cover

Turkey has come up as the most popular holiday destination for beach lovers, foodies, and travel enthusiasts. It is an amalgamation of European and Asian cultures. With stunning scenery, a beautiful coastline, authentic Turkish cuisine, and a rich historical legacy, it attracts many tourists per year across the world. The ancient churches and blue mosques add more charm to this country. UNESCO has listed around 13 sites in Turkey as World Heritage. The last thing you want to deal with while travelling abroad is unexpected expenses. It could be anything, from losing your wallet to serious medical emergencies. This is where international travel insurance comes in handy; if your international travel insurance policy covers it, you will be reimbursed for any additional costs incurred during your trip abroad. These can be useful in the event of a trip cancellation or delay, cashless hospitalisation abroad, or more specific situations such as pre-existing diseases.

Care Travel Insurance brings you a plan that gives you the best protection during several medical or non-medical risks. We offer immediate cashless hospitalisation to reimbursement for loss of checked-in baggage, trip delay/cancellation, assistance in case of loss of passport, etc., under the policy coverage. You can get the policy at an affordable premium to make your trip secured.

It is one of the members of the European Union (EU) that has made travel insurance for Turkey visas mandatory. So, before applying for a visa, buy comprehensive travel insurance plans with unique benefits. Moreover, it serves as a backup plan for several other emergencies and helps ensure hassle-free travel.

Things to Keep in Mind Before Buying Turkey Travel Insurance

  • Trip Duration: The insurance premium is calculated based on the number of days you plan to spend in Turkey. The shorter the trip, the lower the premium.
  • Medical History: If you have a pre-existing life-threatening ailment, you need to ensure that the policy you pick accommodates it.
  • High-Risk Zones: If you are travelling to the destinations that are in the high-risk zones have insurance plans with a higher premium requirement.
  • Review the Exclusions: While on a trip, you might not want to get unnecessary surprises while claiming your policy. Hence, it is advised to check the policy exclusions thoroughly to avoid unwanted claim rejection.
