/ European Car Insurance
Anyone who has spent time in the alps with a car, do you know about insurance requirements?
I have spoken to many British insurers and they only cover europes for max 60-90days in the year. I will be spending 6months at a time, if not longer out there.
Does anyone know about insurance companies who would cover this?
Any suggestions will be great.
Try looking into Farmer's Union car insurance. Some folks who live in Geneva managed to get cover while they were out for long periods (1-2 years) without returning to the UK... May have changed by now.
Have a word with these guys: https://www.stuartcollins.com/quote.php
OK if you're spending time 50/50 in UK/France but if you're doing a permanent move then you will have to re-register your car and get French insurance.
It's quite easy to re-register, but can cost about £1000 by the time you get the headlights changed, get control technique, carte gris and and European CofC and number plates. Bonus is that after it's done, there's no road tax, MOT every 2 years and insurance is cheaper.
Phil that looks like a possibility, I will get in touch with them and see what type of cover they offer and what the policies cover.
I will be out there all winter and probably back and forth a handfull of times over the summe but mainly based in france.
I will be employed by english companies if this makes any difference??
