    i found this postcode 29303 which is a road just outside of the camp but it doesnt except it either.

    is there an axa website for car insurance that excepts german postcodes or bfpo so i can get an online quote or it is only possible via phone?

    There were only a few companies that did insurance for BFG vehicles, done through NAAFI Financial

    Try TFI ( The Forces Insurance service). I was with them for 3 years when I was in BFG. They accept BFPO and they have a freephone number for Germany (0800 181 6679) as well as UK.

  5. seconded. IIRC, it was founded by an ex-serviceman and they give you pan euro cover, so no need for a green card.

    Forces Financial has a branch in Hohne so you could call by, get a motor insurance quote and, if you take out a policy, walk away with your policy documents there and then. We have a special offer on motor insurance at the moment - £25 cash back – so it’s worth checking out. Alternatively call 00800 11 22 33 01 free from BFG, or click the link at the top of the Forum and go to our website.

    Forces Financial is a trading name of Stuart Harvey Insurance Brokers Limited who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. Registration number 301858. Registered Office: Globe House, 24 Turret Lane, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP4 1DL

    Hi I am Chris(ex forces...RAMC then Int Corps) based in JHQ. I am an agent for TFinsurance so you, or anyone else, can give me a ring on xxxxxxxxxx and we can sort out any Insurance quotes or questions that you may have. I have been in this game for 8 years (previously at AXA) so i know my stuff.

  9. 25 quid cashback, wonderful; how many times over will a young soldier pay for that I wonder? :(

    Best bet mate go for TFI or try Norwich union in the UK. If you get house or kit insurance with them as well, you'll save even more; my wife and I had 50% knocked off the price of our car insurance as we have home and contents insurance with them as well as personal injury insurance.

    Nope, I do not work for them. I'm an I.T. God :D
     
  10. ALBINGIA VERSICHERUNG used to be a cheap German insurance firm that insured BAG vehicles. I think NAAFI are underwritten by NU who I've always found to be expensive. I never understood why private vehicles had to pass a BFG test and have BFG plates when they were insured with a green card. Anyone?

    You could also try Axa Colonial through O'Girke's, I have my insurance through them and it's dirt cheap.
