Yes, try "ATM seguros" Bs.As. They will cover all MERCUSOR countries named on one ticket covering the dates that you want and it is cheap compared to UK prices. Ride safe.

Even when not compulsory, it is worth buying (if available), as it only takes a second to have an accident .......

Where are you now ?

Argentina, it is compulsory to enter the country with the bike.

Chile it isn't, in fact Chile do not seem to be able to sell you insurance for a foreign bike in Chile.

However, if you are in Chile, they *will* sell you insurance for Argentina :-). Go to Ripley or Fallabella and they will be able to do it.

The others I don't know.
It would also be easier if you told people where you are now :-)

They should do, we were offered 3 days, 7 days, 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 month and 6 months.

6 months was only 10USD more than 3 months

Ask at the hostal you stay in, I assume you will be in Arica so will recommend Sunny Days. Ross (the owner) is very helpful and will point you to somewhere.

Otherwise, do what we did in Los Andes. Start at Ripley and just keep asking .... Falabella do it if there is one there.

Eventually someone will know where the office you need is :-)
