Thanks.
Thanks for the update. Glad it is set up and working. Great to have an alternative to ADAC.

That said, has anyone got live experience with what happens in the case of an incident where the insurance comes into play, like crashing your bike into a donkey cart in a small town where no one speaks your language? Is the procedure to call (800 number?) the incident in to your insurer, of course after showing all your paper to the police?

Just curious, I realize that the local townspeople will probably stone you to death if you kill their donkey. This Summer, in Macedonia I ran into the rear bumper of a car with my aluminum pannier and the driver was amazed I even stopped to deal with it. I had minor damage to my case (dent I fixed manually), he couldn't find any damage in the beat up crap mobile he was driving. Might have been different with a $100,000 Mercedes in Switzerland :)
