Sorry to bore you with my journey again. I am driving over early November until April 2010 and staying in Lapta. Is it best to get Car Insurance as passing into Turkey for the few days in Turkey and then the same on arrival in Girne. Can you take out Comprehensive insurance for 90 days on arrival or is it only 3rd Party etc. (To be renewed after 90 days for a longer stay)

Stewart's thought is good as we assume your car is registered and insured in the UK

Just ask your ins. company for a green card which will cover you for your journey, up to 30 days for any one trip. This will suffice in turkey and also over the border in the south. On arrival in TRNC they will sting you for 50 for a months cover note,unless you have taken out cover prior on your motor. As your trip isnt till nov, you have got plenty of time to get cover in trnc. If you know someone here then give them the details and they can do it for you, its a lot cheaper that way. I am speaking from experience as I did the trip 3 weeks ago, your a brave man! its a bloody nightmare!.

I think thats the way to do it corbo, "slow and relaxed". On why a nightmare? its not that bad I suppose, but as I told you before, the fun starts at leaving turkey and arriving here. I have never seen such chaos as the farce in tascucu with customs and the police, and there is no way of explaining what happens as I'm still not sure what did!. The best piece of advise is to find someone going on the ferry to help you who can speak turkish, then they can explain what to do. Same goes for the arrival in TRNC. As for the ferry, My car went on another ferry, not the same one as me, but nobody told me that, they just grunted and pointed. The ferry I went on was ( to put it nicely) a big bag of shite, and you dont have a choice. To go the 67 miles from turkey took all of 8 hours, I could have swam faster ( and at one point considered it!) just glad to get off. But anyway, hope it all goes ok.

Cheers..jinyx..thanks for that. Yes I've heard the admin stuff at Tasucu can be difficult. I'll be mentally prepared for it and will find someone going on the ferry who speaks Turkish. I've dealt with East African admin when younger which is bound to be far worse.
