Thumbs up EU/Balkans/Turkey green card/ one stop shop

Hi to all the old and new motorcycle and 4X4 friends from all over the world.

We (www.lobagola-mototours.com) have started a new project of EU green card/border insurance third party liability insurance coverage for inmates with bikes plated outside of EU or for the bike with EU plates. We're the only provider in EU that will provide third party liability insurance coverage for EU plated bike that is ridden or owned by non EU resident.

Lot's of inmates and RTW travellers know me as owner of Lobagola B&B, motorcycle and bicycle travellers meeting point, and often acting as lighthouse in Balkans for inmates in need (service, repairs, shipping parts and tires are just a part of the menu).

All the info about the EU green card third party liability policy, fees, etc, can be found on our website:

http://www.lobagola-mototours.com/se...urance/eu.html

We're guaranteeing upon receiving (08-15 h CET work days) the needed docs and forms to send the scan of the policy on the same day via email, and inside following 48 h we're shipping the original document either with air mail or EMS tracked shipping (price lists are also up there).
If expedited service is needed, we have that option also for surcharge and we're shipping in couple of hours (24 h guaranteed) upon receiving all the documents and forms filled in correctly.

We're full one stop shop, offering accommodation in our multiple award winning Lobagola B&B, provide green card coverage for EU, Balkans and Turkey, motorcycle storage in our 300 m2 underground warehouse where we store our own bikes and clients bikes. Motorcycles are stored on yearly or monthly base for the price of 45,00 eur/month, and we provide trickle charging and also a regular weekly engine spinning to allow the oil flow.

http://www.lobagola-mototours.com/se...e-storage.html

We can sort service, spare parts, tires and huge range of additional equipment working with all major suppliers in the country.
All tires are delivered in 48 h max to our door.

We're covering service of all major brands: BMW, KTM, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha either in official service centre or in trusted service stations managed by skilled mechanics. In case of hurry or major repair/breakage we're always taking people in front of the line, to ensure faster solution that will enable getting back to the road as soon as possible.

If you would like to purchase a motorcycle in Europe and own it for a year, or couple of years, saving big time on renting or shipping, we're providing a service of bike purchase (finding, negotiating, and buying) and sorting all the paperwork, and insurance as well here in Croatia.

There is wide selection of well maintained bikes in the market here, like Suzuki V-strom, Honda Transalp or Varadero, Yamaha TDM, or BMW gs 1150/1200.

http://www.lobagola-mototours.com/se...-purchase.html

We can also source light enduro bike for you if you're keen to ride TET (www.transeurotrail.org) amazing project we're so proud being a part of.

I am serving as a linesman for Croatia and we can provide loads of mapping suggestion for riding in Balkans. Bikes that people are using for TET range from Suzuki DRZ 400, DR 650, Royal Enfield Himalayan, Honda Dominator, Kawasaki KLR, Yamaha TTR, Honda XR, Yamaha XT (older model), BMW x challenge, KTM enduro 525/530/640 adventure, Husquarna Enduro 701 etc.

If you have inquiries please send it to: info@lobagola-mototours.com

For the bikes that are bought through us, we can also provide full comprehensive insurance for a very competitive price for a period you desire to ride.

Motorcycles that clients buy through us are obliged to be stored with us on yearly base.

Zagreb airport has amazing daily connections with all major hubs in Europe, Frankfurt, Paris, London etc, from Canada you have direct flight with Air Canada Rouge from Toronto and from Montreal you have direct flight via Air Transat to Zagreb also. Direct flights from Atlanta USA are also available, and to NZ and Australia Emirates have their base here in Zagreb with connection over Dubai.

If you have any questions regarding the insurance just let me know either through this thread or over PM or email us at: insurance@lobagola-mototours.com or tours@lobagola-mototours.com

Cheers
Dooby

Thanks, Dooby

Worked out very well getting our green card insurance from you this summer. Flew our bikes from Montreal to Dublin. Very easy transaction, and the cards arrived by courier in plenty of time. We are storing our bikes in Cork and will be back in the Spring, so we'll be giving you a holler when the time is near. Great Service, Thanks again!

I have purchased green card insurance for my Canadian plated motorcycle from Lobagola in the past, and have been very pleased with the service provided.

Clear and prompt communications, reliable delivery of the green card (both an electronic scan and the physical document), and an efficient website.

Motorcycle insurance in the UK with an International Driving Permit

Hi all

I am an Vietnamese student doing my master in the UK until January 2019. So this is a great opportunity for me to make some motorcycle trips in the UK and Europe during this time. I have bought a BMW R1150R from an Aussie friend when he had to come home. I have a Biometric Residence Permit and a UK address, so the bike is registered in my name. I found that it is complicated to buy an insurance with my International Driving Permit (IDP)

I had done a lot of homework with several insurance providers and compare sites. However, only a few insurancers sell insurances for people with IDP with the expensive price, about 4,000 pounds/year. Its so expensive and of course I can't afford this insurance. Does anyone have any ideas for my cases? Any information will be appreciated.

On the other hand, I am thinking about applying for a full UK license. It would take time and efforts but may be the only solution to be legal for driving in the UK with my case. Hope to hear from you guys. Thanks!

Hi Dau,

Thanks for stopping by in our thread.

We can support your journey all over EU with our third party liability insurance coverage. From spring next year third party liability for Balkan countries and Turkey will also be on offer through tailor made system. You will be able to choose countries that you want to ride depending on your time frame, this will save money and cause much less stress because you can just show at the border and enter. Now many of the border crossings in Balkan countries and Turkey do not offer third party liability insurance policy also known as green card insurance or border insurance.

We're offering 15/30/90 days time period.

By using our border insurance policy you will also be insured in the EU country where your motorcycle has been registered in (UK i presume). We're the only provider in Europe offering this option, so from the second you jump on your motorcycle your policy is valid and you're covered.

All the info is on our website:

http://www.lobagola-mototours.com/se...urance/eu.html

if you have any other question, just post it here and we'll be all over it

Cheers
Dooby

Riding and driving season is in full planning mode

Plans are laid out, routes created and needed paperwork sorted in time (hopefully)

We have prepped new products and green card insurance segment on our website that will be launched from March 1st.

Also some news on time window for starting the issuance of the EU border insurance policy, we have managed to extend the time window, so to be able to provide the issuance much earlier then it was in previous years. Precise time window will be announced next week.

If anyone is willing to ride off the pavement in Europe, then please check TET -amazing project that we're also part of:

Home - Trans Euro Trail (please join the forum too !)

Being a linesman for Croatia, we're as always ready to support your plans either in front or during your visit to us, staying at our Lobagola B&B

Some news regarding the earliest start to send us the documents for the EU green card insurance policy.

We have managed to step up the starting time period from 30 days up to 50 days before the starting date of the policy.

You can send us the docs and forms much earlier than that but we cant issue the policy before these 50 days ticks from your starting date.

This will enable more relaxed time management and cheaper shipping is going to be used more .

Green card insurance

50 days ahead will be nice, although I've not had any problems with 30 days with you. Both times I've purchased insurance with you, I got all the paperwork at home in the US well before heading to Europe to ride. Thanks for your great service!!

This is the second time I have purchased Green Card insurance from Lobagola and highly recommend them. They respond quickly to all emails and process your purchase just as advertised, even sent me a tracking number for my paper policy. Other providers may say they are as good but, Lobagola has set a very high bar for service.

There is still more to this. When my motorcycle broke down in Zagreb, Dooby jumped into action helping me arrange repairs, juggled rooms so I could extend my stay at Lobagola B&B, found me a very nice motorcycle to rent so I could continue my trip while waiting for repairs, worked with the repair shop to stay on top of progress and kept me informed while I traveled. I could go on and on about the great people at Lobagola B&B, they are the best. Try and get that kind of service at your next B&B or hotel when things don't go as planned. I will be stopping there again on my way to Turkey, it is a great place to stay.

Thanks Slowriding for your feedback!

It was great pleasure to have you a little bit longer as our guest, though unplanned, I am happy your bike was repaired and in the meantime you still have managed to enjoy riding in the Balkans, and that was riding a bike you have owned previously BMW RT .

As the provider of green card insurance policies, we really strive to provide community with the service based on in depth knowledge from our own travelling and current trends in motorcycle travel.

We're waiting for you and all other motorcycle, 4x4 and expedition vehicle travellers.

Cheers

Important changes to our offering for third party coverage is that from last week we removed the time window of 50 days for issuance of the policy before the starting date of the coverage.

So from now onward's there is no time limit when we can issue the coverage for your motorcycle, 4x4, camper or expedition truck.

You can apply for the coverage as soon as you have your plan laid out so reducing the anxiety of hard copy deliveries as well as making it much easier to plan your journey.

Known emails as always for getting in touch are:

insurance@lobagola-mototours.com
tours@lobagola-mototours.com
info@lobagola-mototours.com
