Default Looking for a good Insurance in France...

Cross post from the Europe Forum:

I am moving to France this summer.
I need to insure my 95 993.
Does anybody have any recommendations?
MAIF won't insure it...

What a PITA!

Merci,

hi, you could ask to MATMUT, i have my 997 C4S,993 TT and 964 insured by them. they are sponsor for IMSA race team and French Carrera Cup .... they used to have good prices, but i didn't compared for a while. you can check on Flat 6 or RS magasine which have some advertising from insurers .
PM me if you want me to find those address .
Where will you be living in France ?

I tried Allianz in Annecy, they were very nice. Although 1500 euros a year is steep!

I got a contact via Club911.net, this guy seems very good: http://assurancesdelannoy.com/

Most members swear by him. I'll update the thread when I finally insure the car.

Agence Delobel Megeve, contact details below, insured my RS 4.0 with the same AXA policy and value as quoted on by Porsche's broker but for ⅔ the price of Porsche and less than ⅓ the excess.

No track cover because of the value though. If anyone can recommend an insurer for untimed trackdays I'd be grateful.

Agence Delobel Megeve:

410 Route Nationale – 74120 MEGEVE

Just want to clarify: was this for European delivery or are you a resident of France?

I am (sort of) a resident of France--I have a second home there and an annual carte de séjour but no French drivers license. I'm considering taking European delivery but will keep the car the maximum period allowed (6 months, I believe) before shipping it back to the US, and the Porsche insurance for that length of time is VERY expensive!

Thanks!

I also have only a second home there but keep my car in France permanently and have progressed to a 10 year carte de séjour. I'm now finalising a policy with Allianz because they offer track day cover for the RS 4.0. AXA does not offer it; my OPC thinks they do not offer it for cars over about €200k. The Allianz excess is even less than the Agence Delobel Megeve AXA one and Allianz offers a range of limited km options which make the premium less than the AXA one too. The Allianz agency I am using is:

GUINET ASSURANCES
LE POLYGONE - Immeuble OMEGA
27 Allée Albert Sylvestre
73000 - CHAMBERY
Tél : 04 79 68 53 95 - Fax : 04 79 68 53 96
Email : [email protected]

I have also received a good price for my French house from them.

I don't know how exporting your car after 6 months will affect things but if you insure your house with them it might make them more interested.

Bonne chance!

My apartment in France is insured through Allianz so I'll check with my agent. Not sure how not having a French license and driving record will affect getting insurance--no basis for determining the bonus/malus. . .

I have an Australian license. I started in France with a Renault Sport nine years ago and can't remember whether I inherited my Australian bonus but I did in England when I bought a car there a few years ago.

A very off-topic question, but how did you get a 10-year carte de séjour? I'm on a carte visiteur (no work allowed and annual justification of resources). I inquired at my local prefecture (Nimes) and they said I'm not eligible for a longer carte.

Thanks!

You have to have five years of 1-year cartes. Then you are eligible to make an application for a 10-year. It's like the last 1-year plus:

1. Proof of financial resources ≥ SMIC over last 5 years. This was a bit complicated with our income being Australian and non-salary. We needed the help of a friend living in France to convince them they were being too pedantic and should just accept our history of having sufficient funds in our French account.
2. Copy of property title.
3. Statement to honour the principles of the French Republic.
4. Proof of sufficient knowledge of the French language. We provided signed letters from French course providers describing what we had done. At the end of the handover of documents and fingerprinting they ask a few simple questions in French to test your comprehension. They want to know that you will be able to communicate with emergency services should the need arise. We didn't know this and on our first application were caught by surprise. Our very limited French deserted us so we only got another 1-year carte. We studied more over the following 12 months and scraped through the following year.
5. Justification of intention to stay long term in France.
6. Proof of health insurance. My wife and I have Australian travel insurance (6 months on the credit card, an extra month from an online company) and we had to get a translation of the relevant clauses by an accredited translator.

Time consuming but well worth it to save the annual applications.
