    I noticed that you talked about the European Accident Statement.

    cartraveldocs.eu is hosting the official European Accident statement and it can be downloaded for free, in several languages and used officially in case of an accident.

    After having an accident in the last 12 months I can’t stress how important it is to make sure you get a contact number for all parties involved. It can make it much quicker for the insurance companies to evaluate who is at fault if they can speak to both parties involved. I was insures through confused.com and as it wasn’t my fault the third party insurers called and me we sorted it out without involving my insurance.

    Turkey is covered by Caravan Guard’s motorhome insurance policy providing you have taken out European cover and extended the policy to include a Green Card for Turkey; meaning if you were in an accident or had your motorhome damaged or stolen whilst in Turkey then, provided it was a valid claim, you would be covered as normal. However AXA Assistance, who provide our motorhome breakdown cover in the EU, have a limited amount of coverage in Turkey. This means that in certain parts of Turkey they might not be able to get to you. However, they have confirmed that they will cover your costs should you have to use a local service instead of AXA Assistance – simply keep all receipts and submit a claim afterwards. In either case, you should first call AXA Assistance and they will advise you of the best course of action.

    If you breakdown in Turkey the number you should call is 00 44 1737 815 123

    Can you tell me whether you insure and recover if a breakdown happens in, whilst travelling in Turkey for instance?
