Van and bike insurance

Hi Guys, we cannot seem to be able to get insurance for our van or the 3 trail bikes for our stay in iceland,as we are going in 2 weeks and are on the island for 21 days, we would be grateful if anyone could advise us of a company in the uk or can we contact an icelandic insurance company. How does everyone else do it ??
Thanks in advance Ash.

Iceland cover- no idea - probably requires an additional premium to cover from basic EU one
I have a 4x4 , classified as commercial vehicle insured with Groupama.
You might want to try them

I've been with Carole Nash for years and Iceland is covered as part of Denmark. I thought all policies would place iceland as part of europe. It covers All EU countries and Iceland, liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland for up to 90 days.

There are three insurance companies in Iceland that you might want to check out:
ForsÃ*ða - VÍS
Sjóvá - Vertu viss
Tryggingamiðstöðin.is - ef þú ert tryggður þá færðu það bætt!

Maybe they can help you
