Experience a vibrant mix of East and West, historical marvels, and the Grand Bazaar!
For a country that straddles Europe and the Middle East, Turkey brims with tourist appeal. Whether you’re drawn to the mosques and historic sites in Istanbul, wish to pay your respects at Gallipoli, take a hot-air balloon ride over Cappadocia, or hiking through the Valley of Love is more your speed, World Nomads can assist with travel insurance plans while you are abroad.
Along with all your valuables, you should consider packing World Nomads Travel Insurance as soon as your trip is confirmed, if it’s an afterthought, that’s OK too, you can buy your policy while on the road.
Our team recognises that the coverage each traveller needs depends on their individual circumstances. That’s why we offer two different policies – Standard and Explorer – each with different coverage depending on what you’ll be doing on your travels through Turkey.
For example, if you’re planning on renting a vehicle and driving around Turkey, the Explorer option may suit you, as it includes a rental car excess and may cover the cost of a replacement key should one be required. This cover also includes benefits associated with hijacking, higher baggage reimbursement limits, and some coronavirus-related coverage.
If you’re heading to Bodrum for a relaxed seaside holiday, Standard cover may be sufficient. World Nomads offers coverage (up to the policy limits) for:
And many more cover options and extras…
Make sure that you’ve selected the right travel insurance plan for your specific needs as our travel insurance plans are different and cover will vary, depending on what's happened, the plan you choose, and any optional extras or upgrades you buy. With World Nomads you can get a quote, make a claim, or extend your policy instantly online, even while traveling.
Turkey is peppered with incredible experiences, but any time within this nation comes with a few risks. Pickpockets are a concern (muggings too), especially in Istanbul; terrorists have targeted the country before and may do again; and if you’re looking to hire a car, be aware that Turkish drivers are renowned for often ignoring the road rules.
None of us has a crystal ball that can tell us whether our bags will go missing enroute, or if an injury or illness is on the horizon, or that due to weather conditions your pre-booked hot-air balloon ride or your ferry ride from Turkey to Greece will be cancelled. Depending on the policy you choose, our policies may cover you (up to the policy limits) for the following:
Travel insurance is not designed to cover everything. Some things we don’t cover include:
This is only a summary of coverage and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the policy. You should read your PDS in full so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Never travel without travel insurance. This was the first time I ever purchased travel insurance and I am so glad I did. A few days into my trip to Spain I twisted my foot heading down to the metro. Thanks to World Nomads I was able to get medical attention in Spain, and since, as luck would have it, I had a fracture that required surgery, they got me a flight home the next day. Filing a claim was surprisingly easy and when the claim was finally processed, I was reimbursed for all of my expenses including things like the extra week in the hotel I didn't get to take advantage of.
