Insurance Arg,Chile, Bol, Par, Uru, Brazil

FYI: I just got Insurance for my BMW R1200GSA at an Allianz agency in Buenos Aires for these countries:
Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil
3rd party only (the only option for foreign number plates)
1 year is Arg. Pesos 1062,-
1/2 year is 580,-

I arranged it by eMail before leaving Germany with

Roby Speiser email: roby[at]speiserseguros[dot]com[dot]ar

The office is not far from the Obelisc in BsAs
Diagonal Roque Saenz Peña 651 p3 of. 56
4326-3647 / 2611 - Capital (country code is +54, you'll have to look up the prefix for Buenos Aires if you want to call)

He e-mailed me an advance letter confirming my intent to take out insurance with Allianz in case I should need it for customs. Well, getting off the Grimaldi ship, I wasn't asked for any (!) vehicle documents, To get the bike in the country only took 5 minutes!

A day after my arrival in town I went to his office. He had everything prepared, I only had to pay the 1062 Pesos (cash only) and pick up the contract and the green card for the other countries. Also took just 5 minutes. And I always thought Argentina was a red-tape nightmare

I hear ATM insurance is a bit cheaper, but you have to wait a few days if you want it to be valid in neighboring countries. And Roby speaks German, (and probably english too), which would be a great help if I should actually have an accident.

Cheers
Frank

I have purchased insurance from Roby as well. Very good service, quick, and able to arrange payment with methods such as Western Union for foreigners. Highly recommend Roby and the team at speiserseguros.

Bike papers and passport. They asked the year (build) and current value. Give them a low estimate. If the bike is stolen you have to pay import tax which kind of adds insult to injury. No fee for customs papers in Arg/Py/Brazil.

Allianz insurance agents in the southern countries of SA

When I posted this over a year ago after buying insurance from Roby Speiser in Buenos Aires, he had also given me a paper with a list of agents in other countries in case I should have a claim to make - which I didn't.

It should be possible to buy the 3rd party insurance for all of Mercosur at these places, although I don't have any experience with them. I just post it before I throw away that piece of paper. I hope it'll help someone.

It would be great if anyone could report about using one of these agents.
