Argentina Insurance

Does any one know and insurance company for Argentina. They would not let me through the border today with the insurance I had bought. Basically got the border guard from hell, and he didn´t like the paper it was printed on. This will be my third insurance policy for this bike.

Quick reply please - would like to go back to them tomorrow.

Cheers Ben

Insurance

Thanks Warthog for the quick reply - I have sent them off an email - hopefully I will be able to get it sorted pretty quickly. Would like to get down to TDF for new years.

Cheers Ben
