    Travel Insurance

    I'm thinking of using holidaysafe.co.uk

    They do an annual multi trip "Activity travel insurance" with worldwide cover for motorcycle use. It's £36 for premier cover and £31 for standard. Each trip can be up to 31 days duration which is enough for our Morocco trip.

    It would cost around £26 for single trip cover for the Morocco trip so for me it's an no brainer to go for the annual cover, as normal holidays will also be covered.

    Obviously this does not include breakdown cover but you should have that with your bike insurance.

    Different excess depending on the type of claim but around £60 on average sometimes none. Give them a call and they will email you the reference number and the full policy details. You can then decide at your leisure

    Insure & Go Rip off merchants, they are now quoting £1.50 per day as the motorcycle add on premium, that's on TOP of your initial insurance cover

    So let me get this staraight Baz, paul has spoken to someone who has confirmed a normal policy would cover anyone who takes out their normal policy for smashing themseles into the back of a sheep truck on a back road in Marroc which would include all medical expenses and repatriation to the UK?

    If the answer is yes, did he get a name and address of the confimer to use in any disputed claim?

    Has anyone else tried this one. im trying to get an annual activity quote but it will not give me the option to select a location or motorcycling as an activity.

    Best thing to do is give them a call. They were very helpful when I spoke to them.

    Ref Insurance

    I dont think any policy will cover you for running into the back of a sheep truck

    Ref the policy i took , it covers you for motorcycling and for personal injury, not personal liability, it covers medical and repatriation if necessary and all medical expenses and repatriation ,this is handled by axa medical assistance on 448452235568,covered also is emergency medical,surgical,hospital and ambulance,nursing fees incurred outside of the uk.This is all stated in the policy booklet May 2009 edition which is the latest, i also checked via tel con.
    But hey it's up to you guys buy what policy and cover you want, need ,afford, and watch out for them sheep

    It's Morocco Siadwell, not Wales, it's likely to be a camel truck, and smashing yourself into the back of one is probably not a bright idea, unless you have the all inclusive policy from Alpacamel, offering the insurance you require under clause 101.4a which covers falling asleep whilst riding on rough terrain in Morocco

    Uncle Bully outlived his usefullness, Impi has homeland ties, and is more appropriate. I asked Paul to change it for me.

    is anyone else in this position and have to get insurance when we get there or am i the only one

    Chill Winston... Get insurance at the port, same as me, My trader policy is through ERS as well.. Thought we'd talked about that

    90% of UK is the same, so everyone's probably going to be in the same boat mate.
