Is it possible to get full cover insurance valid in Russia for US-registered car?
I know that this is not exactly motorcycle question but I figured you, probably, would be the most informed crowd on this subject. I plan to bring my car from the US to Russia and drive it there for a few months. I clearly understand the "vremenny vvoz" customs procedure. I also understand that I could get basic liability insurance coverage from one of Russian insurance companies just before crossing the border.
I wonder, if anybody here (preferably from the States; I doubt European insurers would be helpful in this case) was able to get the full-coverage insurance for foreign-registered (motorcycle) car in Russia? It is my understanding that no Russian car insurance company would insure my car (again, I mean full cover, NOT liability insurance) as long as it has foreign license plates. Does anybody know any domestic (meaning, US-based) or international insurance companies, which would sell me full coverage policy for the trip to Russia?
I did some research on the Internet and GEICO kept popping up, but they seem to serve mostly EU countries. Does anybody know of any other options? I would love to hear from someone who has driven in Russia on foreign (especially, overseas) plates. Did you get a lot of hassle from the police? Were you concerned about theft? Any other issues?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
