Swiss Insurance for foreign UK registered car

A number of people have implied that as part of the transition of their car registration from UK to Switzerland, for a while they had Swiss insurance cover.

Can anyone give me the name of a Swiss insurance company willing to insure a foreign registered car for up to about 6 months prior to exchanging the plates?

We are trying to figure out what to do with our UK car - chances are it is not worth converting to register here (which sounds as though it is fairly expensive, and in any case long term a RHS drive car is not so desirable), so will either scrap it or take it back ot the UK to sell...

Thanks in advance

Re: Swiss Insurance for foreign UK registered car

For simplicity in case people find this thread when they need it :-)
Swiss insurance for foreign or UK registered cars can be obtained from Zurich

However, it is not necessarily easy. When I called direct, Zurich assured me it was impossible - and not just for them.

However, going through the Neutral Insucance Centre www.nvc.ch, it was easy, and the policy is actually form Zurich - at pretty reasonable prices compared with normal swiss insurance as far as I can tell.


My guess is that it may be a similar story with the others, if you can find the right agent or talk to the right person in the ocmpany in the first place.

Re: Swiss Insurance for foreign UK registered car

Oh Blimey! I'd just gotten to grips with the fact that I'd have to scrap my beloved 9 year old 160,000 mile, golf - found the place to do it, hunted out the registration docs, said my goodbyes and everything - and now this mightily helpful thread comes along and I have to make the decision of what to do with it all over again!!!
