Covering bikes reg'd there, too?
Time to bump this thread again.
To date, motosapiens have insured all the bikes I have put through motofeirme.
Zero problems and insurance has been prompt and professional.
The insurance does cover country or origin, in this case, Ireland.
If purchasing and insuring a bike has put you off euro travel in the past, it seems like we have finally cracked the hurdles facing riders from abroad.
Even if your bike depreciates a thousand over 3 months, it's still only 330 euro/month, 10 euro/day plus 3 euro/day for insurance.
Are people still shipping bikes??
Little bump here.
Just ordered my insurance from Motocamp, great service at almost half
the cost. Thanks again.
Hope someone can be of help. Both my bikes are standing in Germany and my wife and I are South Africans and non EU residents as well as our bikes. We are going back next week to go ride France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Germany for 3 months.
Do I need to get Green card insurance and if so where and which is best to try and obtain that?
I mailed motocampbg and will see what comes back.

If motocampbg doesn't work out for you (it probably will), try
Thanks Courtfisher, Doug and Ivo from Motocamp is busy sorting it out from me.
They are considerably cheaper than the others posted, and feedback is quick..
Quick and easy. Just got my Green card from Ivo. Now it is off to 3 months of bliss and biking and beers!
Replying to this thread so that I remember when I need it...
KTM registered here in New Zealand. Can I use this for insurance when I ride in Europe next year?
(Thank you - I am still early in my planning stages)
Thanks Ivo, great service.
I am planning to ride my bike (Suzuki Volty) From Lebanon to Austria and maybe back or continue my trip for a little longer.
My Route will be taking me through Turkey hence I have to leave from the shores of Tripoli-Lebanon due to the situation in Syria. I am actually an Austrian citizen who lives here now since 5 years working in advertising.
I did my license here thou but I am registered at the Austrian embassy here in Beirut.
I guess in my case I would have to provide you with the following papers.
Proof of Ownership (Arabic-English)
Bike Registration (Arabic- English)
Local Insurance Papers (Arabic-English)
Drivers Licence (Local-International)
I am planning to leave on July 10th from Lebanon to Turkey via Ferry.
I was told that Turkey needs a different Permission same as Serbia I guess hence they are not EU countries.
If I'd apply for the european green card insurance I'd go for the 3 month hence it's more fun to ride even more
Please let me know if my assumptions are correct and if there are any additional papers I would have to provide.
its not a problem, just email Ivo or Polly in Bulgaria
Im in the US right now, but they will be able to help you.
Yes, you will need to buy insurance for Turkey at the border. Its not real expensive.
From the horse's mouth that is HMG (hence the UK reference)
Driving in the European Union (EU)
All UK vehicle insurance provides the minimum third party cover to drive in other EU countries.
Check with your insurer if your policy has extra cover for things like theft or damage to your car abroad.
Driving in other countries
Outside the EU, a green card proves that your insurance covers the minimum cover in the country youre driving in. Ask your insurance company if they can issue you with one.
Hoping this still works.. have a couple emails in. Anybodies contact returned lately?
yes, still works, we had a big travelers meeting this past week in BG, & things were really busy. I am in the US right now, but I told my friends to check the emails
Thanks Doug... Got the email this morning.
Looks like they're doing Three months at a time right now for 140 euro. Still a much better deal than Knopf for sure. (for even a month)
What a find this thread is! Been paying top for my german-issued green card, will be emailing BG tomorrow 4sure.
Thanks to all
HI Doug, It looks like we'll be riding from Paris down through Spain and Portugal for a couple of weeks in Morocco. Trip duration expected to be 30-40 days. Have you any insurance or recommendations for this trip? Irish plates on the bike (thanks Martin!), US driver's license, International driving license. Thanks.
we can get you the green card for europe, but for morocco, just buy it at the border.
when you stop to eat in morocco, find out the cost before you eat.
or you may end up in a heated arguement with a guy that has alot of friends
and have to make a speedy escape on your bike
(dont ask me how I know this)
