Insurance questionI'm insured with an english insurance company but my MOT has run out and have now had an accident in Italy, caused by me absolutely blinded by the sun and drove into a still standing car.
Well I'm in Rome, you get so much less for your money for an Italian car, e.g. 20 years old and 2000 euro and an enormousely high insurance. Someone said before 1200 euro now that may vary a bit but presumably not a great deal .Any way I'm still waiting for my insurance co in UK to say what they will do pay out 3rd party or not! I'm though elderly a full time student here, so should not be beholden to MOT rules in the UK to make insurance valid. Still waiting they wanted proof I was in the UK which 've provided but its now 3 weeks on an am still waitingThanks for all the help
Thank you I just wonder how much they cost though. May still be better of driving to UK for MOT once a tear
Thank you very much that has been very helpful I may still decide tho get one in UK and go over every yearAt least it save the flight cost and I'd have a car being there
Where in Italy are you I'm in Rome and I've heard that it very much varies where you go, S o wonder where yu went e.g. where you are. How much do you think it cost you overall to convert?Yu obviously thought it was worth it - and another thing , the length of time, I keep hearing horror storis of 6 minth. I do know that in order to get my residence it was very difficult and took some 9 month 0- but f curse that was with other people, communeAnd how high is the insurance in Itay, I paid £491 protected bonus - I just wonder if it is worth converting as the cars here are aso so much more expensive - and I'm told the insurance is very high too
How much more expensive it the insurance and also who are you insured with and drive it home once a year.It is just to difficult to decided, if insurance is so much more expensive as well as cars being so much more expensive in Italy it may still be worth the driving home once a year, which will then be minus the flight I usually do once a year too.Oh so difficult some people say no problem but a lenghty proces, others it is a problems and a lenghty process.Who to approach best for the easy solution in Rome?Thnk you ad thank you all for the help I'm still undecided
Very unlikely in the 8 years I have been here it's only been bad with snow once - nd the mayor required snowchains, which was hilarious as it cut roads open everywhere where there was no snow!! Also it was very nice no traffic on the road, because Romans do not know that once has to drive differently with snow, and stay manicBut of you are going out venturing further into Abruzzi or mountain, it would be useful to have something along, - however no snow very closely to Rome just now - and only likely to be less if any as time goes by
I simply forgot I had a lot of problems, death of a very close person, then cancer -And I still don't know if to buy another English car or an Italian they seem to expensive for so old. At the moment I'm still waiting what they are going to do about the 3rd party claim etc.Could have mune repaired and take it to England, but no am awre so I cannot - it will mean new, old carWhere did you go to have it registrered in Italy - and how long did it take
