Greetings

Toine
Many happy returns Toine.



On the insurance front, I spoke with a young lady in Carole Nash and she quoted me 45 all in for two weeks Green Card cover for Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia, she said she'd email me the quote later today. The rate is 15 per week and 15 admin charge, for the sake of simplicity at least I'll be going for that.

I have every kind of map for the GPS loaded, the gear is packed, apart from my bike being completely dismantled, I'm good to go.

Green card isn't required for Greece, Slovenia, Croatia - they're all in the EU and covered anyway. But good news on the others, Albania, Montenegro, and Bosnia. Would you mind posting the name of the insurer? Is it Aegis, the company that bought out Groupama?

Hi Berin, yeah Carole Nash are now using Aegis, the lady I spoke to said all those countries in that area are now covered with this addition but cover could not be arranged until 30 days before required, so end of April.

I much prefer having this sorted before we go rather than arranging cover at the border.

Green card

In my earlier post I also confirmed that AGEAS (via Carole Nash) will cover all that we want(but also only 3rd party for trail bikes). The price that you quote though needs clarification?--I was quoted roughly the same EXTRA cost for the issue of a green card--but that was on the basis of me already being insured with AGEAS--and thats the point I raised-I'm not with AGEAS and they don't do multi bike--(they are not the cheapest out there anyway and Carole Nash don't often recommend them)-I would therefore have to switch insurers first WITHOUT carrying across a good no claims (multi bike) to a single bike policy just for my Honda, and then get the green card top up .--its an expensive route !

Hence the clarification request. If you managed a Green card just for a short period without being with AGEAS anyway, then thats great news. I agree with Berin--I'm already covered for all EU territories with a fully comp green card as part of my current policy with Carole Nash, and only need a green card as an addition for Albania, Bosnia and Montenegro.

We'll sort it! CB

Hi Chris, you can give them a call if you'd like but I've no doubt the offer of green card cover is open to policy holders only, sorry.

Edit:

As discussed this morning by telephone we are able to provide a green card which will insure you on your bike in Albania and Montenegro. It will give you the same level of cover that you currently have on your policy which is comprehensive however the breakdown cover will only cover you in Europe.

Green card

I have spoken to them at length already--and you confirm my info--I need to be with AGEAS to get a green card from them to cover the territories outside the EU. I just wonder whether there are better companies out there that will do the same--I don't mind swapping companies but it really needs to be a multibike so that I can carry across the maximum no claims .

Hi mates,

for off roading in greece the best maps are those of toponavigator

http://www.toponavigator.com/iMapper/index.html

unfortantely the online version is only in greek but you can use it like google maps, right click on the start point (Αφετηρία) and then on the end point (Προορισμός), καθαρισμός clears the route and then on the left column it suggests 6 different route options from shortest to hicking. Usualy the 4x4 routes are the best for dual sport bikes and the extreme is like single tracks for enduro bikes.

For normal street use, Garmin's latest europe maps have great coverage.

Cheers

Just a little more on the green card...

I just spoke to Carol Nash and asked about cover for the countries listed. They have quoted me 46.80 on my DRZ to cover all of the non-EU countries - sounds reasonable so I'll probably do that also. I suppose I should have asked if the European breakdown cover is also extended to those countries.. doh!
