Fully Comp Insurance for 4wd in Africa?

Is it possible to get fully comprehensive insurance for a 4wd for Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Senegal? The cost is unimportant.

If so can anyone suggest who I can speak to?

Many thanks,

Dave

Comprehensive insurance for Africa

Hi Dave,

You might want to try Alessi too.

Happy trails,

Jojo

Dave,

If you find an insurer who will do this, can you please post a follow-up, as I expect there are several others like me who would be interested.

This is who we used:

International Car, Property, Health, Commercial Insurance for Expats | Clements Worldwide

The cover was for mainland Africa and cost around 800 GBP pa.

One thing though. Although we were travelling all over we were able to give them an address in Africa where we were based for some of the time. This may have impacted on the price.

Alessie are very good, but they used to only do comprehensive on cars under 7 years old.

Travel safe, Sam.
