    Key Holders

    Does anyone know of a key holder service in Altinkum?Are there any English people in the Camlik are who are willing to be a key holder?There may be absolutely no need to for the sevice.. probably not as we will have 24/7 monitoring on the property.The possible respoce would be to respond to an alarm call to check the property.Please send me a privetr message if you wish. James.
  2. I hope it is OK to post this notice.Looking and phoning through the list of insurers recommended to me by Ben I feel I must provide the following recommendation for the benefit of members who may require this service. I would like to recommend My Gursel Shavool an insurance agent in Izmir.He is very friendly,speak and importantly understands English perfectly.He is very efficient, professional and promnt in the dealings I have had with him.In addition he is internet friendly, and will send specimin policies/price by emailwhich are very competative.He accepts credit card payments from home or abroad if necessary, or bank transfers.I have no hesitation in recommending him as an excellent agent.I am not on commision he was recommended to me by another member.Contact Numbers for Gursel:Office: 00902324822112Mobile:00905334102763- if out of hours the office number rings his mobile.

  7. Hello Meral, Have you by any chance needed to go to the port entry point near Cesme?If you have did you notice if there were any insurance companies on the turkish side of the port entry?We are bringing our car to turkey in April and hopefully will be taking the ferry from Ancona to Cesme(thats if the run in April).We need to buy 3rd party car insurance for our stay in Turkey until September and wonder if I can cross the border and buy the insurance then drive the car through?Sounds like a bit of a job to do, but its very difficult, (not impossible as yet ,although we are trying our best)to get the insurance from the UK to use to cross into Turkey.I can see a number of difficulties and would prefer not do this unless I have to.Maybe someone has already do this?It would be good to hear from them if they have.Ant help would be much appreciated. James
