This COVID Insurance does seem to be good news.

I am unclear as to whether any new or existing UK purchased Travel policies provide any cover for anything else whilst the UK government travel advice remains "only essential travel".............

TRANSLATION FROM DR MARTINS GROUP

20/6/2020.

Culture and Tourism Minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy invited the ambassadors of the 60 [as yet un named] countries sending the most tourists to Turkey, to Antalya & shared with them the measures taken by Turkey for safe tourism.
The Minister said Turkey would start offering a health insurance package covering Covid-19 as of July 1. He added it would be possible for tourists to buy specific insurance policies at airports while buying tickets from contracted airline companies before passport control or else online and via tour operators.

According to the info provided by the Minister fees for the insurance policies will be as follows:

– the policy covering health expenditure up to 3 thousand euros will cost 15 EUR .

– the policy covering health expenditure up to 5 thousand euros will cost 19 EUR .

– the policy covering health expenditure up to 7 thousand euros will be bought at 23 EUR .
.
The Minister also stated that Covid-19 test centres at tourist airports, Istanbul and Antalya to be in the first places, would be operational within 2-3 days and added that there would be isolated apartments or blocks for positive cases in every hotel.

He said, “Our guests will be able to stay in these rooms. If the treatment phase takes longer than the booking period, which is certainly a possibility, in this case our hotels will offer extra days free of charge. That goes for transit passengers as well”.

Or repatriation costs should it be required.

My father in law died on a cruise five years ago. 90 minutes in the sick bay = best part of £4K. Taken off at Cyprus for autopsy then repatriated to Manchester and then to York. Not much change out of £20k and it’s even more expensive if you are alive!

Last year it was 1300 tl per day if you were in ICU on a ventilator. In a private hospital.
