Insurance can be
a big part
of car rental costs in
Turkey, and can cost you even more
if you don't have it:
If you hit another car, you're
liable for the damage. More...
If your rental car is broken
into, or stolen,
or damaged by a hit-and-run driver,
or you bash into a rock,
you'll need collision insurance. More...
Tires, glass (ie, windshield and other
windows, and headlights) may not be
covered by collision insurance. More...
For medical bills. You may already
be covered, but check anyway. More...

do not include theft of the rented
vehicle in their Collision coverage.
You must pay extra (around US$7 per
day) if you want this coverage.
Don't let all this talk of disaster
alarm you. Most people who
drive in Turkey have no problems, and
never need the insurance they've paid
