CASCO Insurance

If you want to insure the value of your car for your trip through Africa you will need a valuation of the car since the premium is a percentage of that value: A company providing insurance for Africa is based in Rotterdam. Check: http://www.alessie.com


3rd Party Insurance

This insurance covers a vehicle in terms of legislation, relating to Third Party liabilities in the country which the vehicle is travelling and is generally compulsary.


South African Registered Vehicles


The AA is only able to issue Third Party insurance for Zimbabwe and Mozambique. When travelling further north, South African registered vehicles will need to follow the same rules as for any other foreign vehicle and/or purchase the traditional Third Party insurance at each country’s border post.

For your 3rd party insurance Africa is divided in regions in which you need a specific "card". In general these insurances are available at the borders and can be of "African quality" If you want insurance covering the whole of Africa you can also visit http://www.alessie.com. Certainly more expensive but it's reliable. It's however always possible that some countries have their own rules and you have to buy compulsory insurance at the border. (e.g. Egypt)


COMESA: Only valid for East African Countries (YELLOW CARD)

COMESA (Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa) is an insurance policy covering numerous African countries. Persons travelling with South African registered vehicles cannot purchase COMESA as South Africa is not a member of the State Countries issuing COMESA.

COMESA insurance, commonly known as the “Yellow Card”, relates to motor vehicle Third Party liability insurance

COMESA currently applies in these countries:

Burundi
Djibouti
Republic of Congo
Eritrea
Ethiopia
Kenya
Malawi
Rwanda
Sudan
Tanzania
Uganda
Zamibia
Zimbabwe

The CYC (Comesa Yellow Card) is not valid in the country in which you buy it. Therefore you will have to buy LOCAL 3rd party insurance first – usually for the length of time that you’ll be travelling in that country – then you’ll buy the CYC as an EXTENSION to your existing local 3rd party insurance policy.
