Any good hotels you can recommend in Brasov? Or more to the point, any I should avoid altogether?

Crossed Croatia/Bosnia at Metkovic 2 days ago, same price 10 euro for 7 days. Tried crossing slightly further north but was no insurance broker there so they sent us back down to Metkovic.

Compulsory Insurance Unit | IAK Found this info about Kosovo. Looks like they sell it at all borders and it will be around 13 euro per bike.

Making a thread here at ADV trying to get all the details together on Balkans into one place.

Greetings,

I could use your help. I have an Africa Twin (RD07) & am thinking of heading down to Serbia & Montenegro next week for a bit of a tour. Thr bike & I live in Romania, but its a UK bike. What papers do I need? My MoT is a bit old but I can solve that! But my licence & insurance are uk originated, with greed card etc. do i need special insurance for the bike since i'm going outside the EU? My insurer was not sure when I asked a week ago? Also, do I need an international driving licence?

Best wishes,
Damian Galvin
Look me up if you need help finding biker accomodation in Transylvania.

Hi Damian,

For Serbia now - your UK policy should suffice for basic cover as they are now party to EU agreement in the same way as Switzerland and Croatia. They did not even ask for my insurance at border this year. Montenegro - not sure. For extension of full cover - that will depend on your insurer - the same applies for cover in BiH.
Your EU licence is fine.

Give me a call and can give u some pointers.

Gavin

UK registered and insured bike, wasn't even asked to see the papers for the bike, let alone insurance, when crossing into Serbia. As per below, I have linked a thread on ADV in relation to all experiences crossing Balkans borders.

We got through the Montenegro border free but others have paid. More details in the link including where we crossed.
