Insurance

This is my first post. My wife and I are moving to Peru within the next month. We want to take our motorcycle. Can anyone recommend an insurance company that will cover us and the motorcycle while in Peru please? We will be there at least three years. Thank you.

Are you going to register it in Peru and get a local drivers license, or keep the existing registration and foreign license. Overlanders have no problems getting the mandatory liability insurance from either Mapfre or La Positiva (i think it is) and I got 12 months last time but could have got from 30 days upwards, but of course your situation is quite different since you obviouly have different visas and so treatment of your vehicle will be different too.

BTW Might pay to have a look at the list of forums in the main index and pick a forum that matches your post. This one is for medical and health aspects of traveling.

It will be registered there with diplomatic plates. I am not a social media guy, as you can probably tell, so I am sorry for posting this in an incorrect forum. Your information is quite helpful though, so thank you for your help Tony.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
