    Anyone got bike insurance to cover Morocco please ,

    Carol Nash is messing me about , got me cover then said they havent :Doh:

    I spent over an hour on the phone last week sorting out cover ,
    i have a policy that allows 2 bikes ,and they gave me a quote to add the scooter onto it ,
    i told them it had to have cover for Morocco ,

    i bought the scooter today , got home and phoned carol nash to give them the reg number as arranged and they now tell me they do not cover Lexmoto ...
    But they will add green card £30 for first 7 days plus £25 for every 7 days after that,
    We were there 11 weeks last time , so that works out at £280 on top of the normal insurance .




    BUT... on the Lexmoto web site they tell you to go to carol nash for cover ,

    We bought ours as soon as we entered Morocco on bikes, just through border at Tangiers, can't remember how much but a lot of the insurance companies won't provide cover.
    Hope this helps :thumb:

    Someone must have done it ,

    I don't know of anyone ever that's had motorbike cover in Morocco from a UK insurer for anything over 30 days. I do know of a few that have taken out local insurance, but have known many more that don't bother with any at all :Eeek:.

    Have never been asked for insurance in Tangier. I have been asked for it in roadside checks, but am sure they could not read it. I did once buy motorhome insurance at the border and it was not expensive. Am not really sure if it would have been any good if I had needed it.

    Hi Suggys

    We are hoping to take a scooter to Morocco this year too.

    It may worth your while looking through this Morocco thread, Insurance is mentioned several different times.


    http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/morocco/

    The border insurance will always be the minimum requirement for that country, not to the standard of our insurances.

    Good luck, let me know how you get on.
    Must admit Carol Nash told me that we were insured in Morocco, however we are also downsizing our scooter from 300cc to 125cc.

    They used to be the experts in motorcycle cover, not so sure now.

    Pat

    Thanks p4n for the info ,

    Looks like it would have to be local Moroccan insurance ,
    The info you sent does have a few motorcycle hire shops listed , so they may be a good starting point to get insurance info :thumb:

    Rampdale offer extra cover for Morocco costing £50 on top of the premium but only for 30 days in any 12 month period , :Sad:

    Carol Nash would do it for £280 i mean insure me :Blush:

    Liverpool Victoria would not even quote ,

    Keep the insurance suggestions coming in , this info will help others taking their bikes to morocco ,:Cool:

    What many do not realise is that many Moroccans do not have insurance. Thats why they are always being stopped and having to pay a baksheesh. I have even travelled in taxis that have had to pay a baksheesh for having no insurance. I have 2 friends who were involved in a very serious accident on there scooter when on there way to Agadir were run over by a truck who did not see them. The truck had no insurance and unless they wanted a 50 year old truck in payment for there injuries they were well and truly stuffed. The incident cost them a fortune in hospitalisation as well as the loss of there scooter, which adding insult to injory they had to pay to be repatriated, otherwise they would have to pay import duty on it. Even though we have UK insurance, am not very sure how good it would be in Morocco against an uninsured driver who has not got a pot to pee in.
