Question biker-friendly Insurance Cº ?

Fellow Riders,

pls suggest me a couple of Insurance companys,with whom things have worked out well with you,for a limited three week insurance period in Senegal, Mali, Burkina and Guinee-Conacry.

Talkin' about 3 EU registered bikes ( Portugal ),and their respective rides.

thanks for bothering,

In the wind soon,

Mad Dogo.

Look into http://www.worldwideinsure.com

I haven't used them yet, but will buy a policy in the next week. 4 different people have highly recommended them. Since I am from the U.S. I'll be using their Travel Insurance for World residents. To get coverage for riding motorcycles you'll need to select Sports Rider Coverage. There are other options for UK and EU residents, but haven't check into those for obvious reasons.

Have a great ride!

For UK or EU residents there is only an option for motorcycle cover as a sport activity during your normal travels to a max of £5000 cover and max 62 days.

On the US site it's a 12 month policy but only covers 30 days of travel within those 12 months.

I have asked them for a specific quote for 6 month continuous travel through Africa...I'll let you know there response.

Additional possibilities

Here's another one.

www.worldnomads.com

They seem quite good and handle all nationalities

Then there's

www.specialtyrisk.com

I ended up going with these guys, instead of www.worldwideinsure.com, but I am not sure if they handle non-US residents
