Headline from the Telegraph travel supplement over the weekend.Basically saying if you have a claim in Turkey you can expect lengthy delays and significantly less compensation than in the UK. The moral of the warning is do not rely on sales blurb saying professionally run fully insured etc (as on jeep safari literature) they may not be and you are at risk.Your medical insurance will pay for your evacuation to UK and hospital bills in Turkey. But you may not get much compensation from the turks who run the trip and if you are badly injured that may be a disaster for you and your family.So do not go paragliding, jeep safari etc without checking you are covered by your travel insurance first.At least that way you get home even if you get no compensation for any injuries you suffer (time off work, unable to work again ..think about it )
I went paragliding in Olu Diniz a few years ago and was scared silly.When I got home I checked,out of interest,if I was insured by my travel insurance and I was not ! Gulp!
