Experience a vibrant mix of East and West, historical marvels, and the Grand Bazaar!
If you’re visiting Turkey be ready to take in the best of both worlds where East meets West. Straddling the border between Asia and Europe, Turkey offers everything from museums and archaeological sites to pristine beaches along the Turquoise coast and the always busy Grand Bazaar in Istanbul’s Old City with over 4000 shops.
With World Nomads, you can consider buying travel insurance when you book your trip from home or while you're already traveling around Turkey.
World Nomads offers cover for many activities ranging from hiking Turkey’s Lycian Way, hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, or surfing, whitewater rafting, and scuba diving in Antalya. Our plans can offer cover for:
Make sure that you’ve selected the right travel insurance plan for your specific needs. World Nomads has two levels of cover - the Standard Plan and Explorer Plan - that offer different benefits, limits and sub-limits so it’s best to compare them to see which one suits your travel needs. You can get a quote, make a claim, or extend your policy instantly online, even while traveling.
When visiting Turkey there are many spots to visit, whether you’re visiting in the summer or winter months. If you want to avoid big crowds, your best bet is to avoid the major tourist hotspots especially in the Summer months as they can get very crowded with locals and foreigners. The capital Istanbul is incredible but can be also quite daunting as it has 15 million people alone. If Istanbul is a must-see on your travel itinerary, then it’s advisable that you plan ahead, leave enough time and have a handy map when exploring the big city.
There are several attractions that will suit the more adventurous traveller looking for a unique outdoor experience. For example, you may want to visit the ruins of Mount Nemrut at dawn to witness a breathtaking sunrise. For those wanting to go skiing there are a number of ski resorts in Istanbul and Ankara (Turkey’s winter season is November through March).
With World Nomads Travel Insurance there are many outdoor activities, sports, and experiences that are automatically covered and available under both plans. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can upgrade the level of activity cover, which offers cover for a broader range of activities and sports. Whether hiking through ancient ruins, kayaking the Aegean coastline, or rock climbing at Ala Daglar National Park, always make sure you check the plan details before you buy to make sure you’ve got the right level of activity cover.
You should plan ahead for any sports and adventure activities you'll be doing and compare our two insurance plans before purchasing. Remember, you can’t upgrade your activities coverage to the Explorer plan after you buy, so it’s important to get this right on the first go.
World Nomads travelers have access to 24/7 Emergency Assistance. If something goes wrong and you need help, contact our team. They can help get you find local medical facilities if needed, provide local consular details and information and in the worst-case scenario, help get you home if you’re seriously injured or ill and need to be repatriated. When you call (free from anywhere in the world), make sure you have your policy number and a contact number for where you are so we can help.
When traveling to Turkey, travel insurance may help if you become unwell or have an accident, especially in these uncertain times of traveling and dealing with Coronavirus (COVID-19). You don’t want to be left out of pocket if you have to visit a local doctor, go to hospital, need an urgent trip to the dentist, or even worse, have to be repatriated back to your country of residence.
With Coronavirus causing travel disruptions globally, it’s also important that you follow any government and World Health Organisation guidelines while in Turkey. It’s always a good idea to wear a face mask when visiting any of Turkey’s popular hotspots.
The level of cover you’ll have for any Coronavirus-related events under our Standard and Explorer plans will depend on your country of residence and the plan you’ve chosen. Check out our Travel Insurance cover for Coronavirus article which goes into more detail on all the benefits, including benefit limits, terms and conditions, and exclusions.
Travel insurance isn’t designed to cover everything – so make sure you know what you’re covered for. Some of the events we don’t cover include:

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.
Whether you need medical assistance or emergency evacuation, our teams are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year before and during your trip.
