Car Insurance - 4 months in Europe

Hi Everyone,

Jammy gits that were, we are planning a 4 month driving tour through much of northern and eastern/south eastern europe. The problem is that I cant find a company that'll insure the car. We want fully comprehensive car and contents insurance, which will cover us for getting into places like Serbia. I've looked at what the big car insurers offer and it seems they place a 30 day limit on travel in your own car across Europe. Surely there must be people out there that have done a longer stint driving in their own car from the UK across Europe????

Please help Im kinda stuck at the mo.

Cheers

I'm honestly not sure if this is possible at all

For some countries you shall get separate insurance like I did just 2 days ago for Serbia, apart (and despite) of any other insurances.

I hope I'm wrong but...

Especially for Romania, your UK insurance should be enough, as far as I know from one who passed through Romania with his own UK car, spring 2008 (April, I think)

~~~

Those below are quoted as offering unlimited insurance though I'm still in doubt it covers any&all countries in Europe

i am also having similar problem with bosnia,montenegro and albania.

my bmw bike insurance will not cover these countries.

however i have had a reply from the bosnian embassy and i can buy insurance at the border, still waiting for a reply from the other 2, hope this helps as i am sure it will be ok at the other borders.

i will only be getting 3rd party though,not fully comp.
