Hi, this sort of follows on from a couple of other post re car insurance.  

I'm going to drive over to Mojacar at the end of the month and will be here for minimum of 6 months.  My UK car insurance company will only insure for 90 days so I either have to move insurance companies but that will be costly as my current insurance company won't refund anything.  I know I can argue this with them but assume it will take time.  Alternatively I can insure my car in Spain which, all things considered, might not be a bad idea. I've had a quote from a broker called Abby Gate that work with Travelwize insurance.  Have found a couple of negative reviews/comments but all 2014 nothing recent.  Does anyone have any experience with this broker/company and or have a recommendation for a good Spanish insurance company.  It would be preferable to have a couple of quotes at least.

Hope to meet some of you over the winter :) 

Many thanks

We were with Abbeygate until we discovered they only insured the basic vehicle. Any optional extras were not covered. Still ring/ e mail Abbeygate & ask. They are underwritten by Lloyds of London so you have a formal Complaint mechanism unlike Spanish Companies like Allianz which you avoid like the plague.

I believe that Spanish Cos. will only insure for a year & no refund.

We have our 4x4'with Linea Directa because of their breakdown cover which is irrespective of distance from home. Am told Mapfre is similar. Allegedly the cheapest.

Best Wishes,

Bob and Sandra

I’ll second Bob - only two companies offer breakdown irrespective of distance; Mapfre and Línea Directa.  Mapfre is the biggest, I believe but it’s prices reflect that.  I have both our cars insured with Línea Directa

Cheers, Darío
