Here's a picture of the insurance document that Arisa issues. This happens to be the coverage I purchased last year from an ADAC office.

The document is normally referred to as a 'green card', in practice, you get two copies, one is a receipt for your records, which is pink (shown below), the other is the actual proof of insurance document, which is green (that happens to be in my motorcycle saddlebag at the moment). The two documents are the same, they are all multiple impression documents printed on carbonless paper.

Hope this information helps.

Hi everyone and sorry for the late answer.

I didn't know that the thread was still alive.

I sent them scans of my documents via email (cheap and fast since I already had these scans from back home)

After making the banktransfer I recieved the greencard insurance within a week I belive.

They sent it to my parents address in Denmark and my plan was to make them fax it to me and send the original to wherever I landed.

All in all their service was good and fast.

Peter

green card insurance

can this insurance only be bought in Germany or can you get it in other european countries. We are driving overland from Asia entering europe trough Turkey, or can you get insurance that covers all countries?

You can buy the insurance over the internet, with the help of:

1. Internetbanking or a transfer from a physical bank in the country where you are

2. Email and a scanner

The insurance will arrive by snail-mail to an address of your choosing, BUT they will also send you a scan of the insurance to your email ON REQUEST.

The insurance COVERS ALL COUNTRIES WITHIN THE EU for LIMITED LIABILITY INSURANCE ONLY.

Thanks, Peter. I much appreciate your taking the time to respond (repeatedly), and I am about to do as you did—scans, wire transfer and all.

Safe journeys!

Try to send the email to their main email which is info@arisa.lu

But that said I emailed one of their staff a couple of weeks ago and havent gotten a reply yet.

I think that it may have to do with the holliday season.

Perhaps call them?

Referring to our phone conversation we will inform you the rate for the Frontier Insurance is: 105,00€/month for motorcycles.

You can transfer your payment by bank credit transfer to the enclosed indicated account:

As soon as we receive your payment we will transfer you the insurance policy by post.

We will be pleased if you let us know your travel dates, your complete address and transfer us the registration papers of your car and a copy of your identification card.

For further questions do not hesitate to contact us.

Jesus, is that serious?

I just had a reply from Jorge yesterday, he had been on vacation as I thought.

I will contact them and ask them to confirm the 105euro/month price.

According to Jorge the insurance you can buy from him is NOT valued in Turkey ( only 3% of turkey is in Europe)
Is there any agents at the Greek Border?
Peter, have you had any luck confirming that price?
I will get in touch with my nephew in Switzerland to find out if there is a insurance company there that can help?

I have not had a reply from Jorge yet, but it is a very helpfull company indeed.

I cancelled my insurance (didnt need it anymore) and sent the papers back and they sent my money back. Not bad.
