Turkey could offer more to expats

Individuals looking to emigrate to Turkey could be enticed by the prospect of property in the country, it has been reported.

According to World First, mortgage applications for Turkish properties increased 65 per cent in the first five months of 2009, a fact that could lead to more people taking out expatriate healthcare insurance.

Elisabeth Dobson of World First commented that buyers find the country "very good value" because its legal tender is not the euro.

"Purchasers in Turkey don’t feel financially pressured to rent out their property. They are happy they can lock it up and leave it," she added.

Expatriates considering a move to the Mediterranean hot spot might also consider taking out international medical insurance.

According to TravelMole, bookings for holidays in Turkey have also risen of late, with Bodrum and Dalaman noting 11 and 21 per cent increases respectively this year.
