I hope that you might be able to give me advice on EU cover.
I am really confused as to what I am able to do and whats possible. The more I speak to Adrian Flux the more annoyed I get!
I am hoping to MOT my Mini again for the first time in a few years in the Spring, so happy its almost on the road again and I have already got a few events lined up this year to take the car to.
I moved to France with my Girlfriend at the end of last year. Shes french and I am hoping to be able to get a job in Design engineering here as I had in the UK before. The situation here for anyone who is British (BREXIT) and anyone who speaks very little French is proving much more difficult than I had hoped so it is still unclear as to whether we will end up returning to the UK.
My Mini is garaged in England at my UK address and I have been looking at insurance quotes ready for when I can drive it again.
Ideally what I would like to be able to do is:
- Keep the car UK registered and on its original UK plates
- Drive it in France for leisure use only during the summer months. (we would like to drive it on holiday through the alps and down into Italy)
-Keep the car insured in England for the remainder of the year and obviously MOTd and Taxed in the UK
Is there any way I can do this?
I want to be able to drive and enjoy my car but also be able to bring it to Europe for the nicer summer months and not have to go through the hassle of re registering it in France. Its true what they say about French beaurocracy eing a nightmare...
I especially dont want to go through all that while our job situation here is still uncertain.
The quotes I have from Flux do state european cover for over 6 months so I guess it is possible but wanted to check
Does anyone have any experience or advice about this?
