Why take out your Border Insurance here?

OFESAUTO is the Spanish Motor Insurers’ Bureau and is the only organisation which can legally issue Border Insurance valid for the circulation within Spanish territories of vehicles registered outside the EEA.

Border insurance is very similar to the insurance you take out with your insurance company: Your details are taken, the insurance period is noted, the premium (cost) is calculated and your documentation is issued in PDF form automatically. This allows you to drive within Spain and the EEA. If you subsequently cause an accident within the period of coverage the damaged caused to third parties will be covered by your Border Insurance.

Border Insurance Coverage

Covers the civil liability responsibility towards third parties in the country in which you are driving, whether in Spain or the rest of the EEA.

Please note that it does not cover roadside assistance nor legal defence costs etc. It is temporary third party insurance covering Spanish territories and the EEA. If once covered by the Border Insurance your vehicle causes an accident, damages to third parties will be covered.
