    yes that's annually....if the you have a car that is worth anything i would recommend it, but some don't .... have been driving here 6 yrs with no accidents, but better to have and not need, than need and not have...

    You can get basic 3 rd person coverage for less than RD$4000, but you are on the hook for your own vehicle as well as if they sue you...

    Thank you Hammerdown for the quick response.

    Today some one told us he insures his 1998 Land Cruiser for liability for $30/year, and that according to him full coverage here is not worth to paper is written on.

    Though nice to hear that the insurance company you talk about is cutting 10 % for each year? with no accidents.

    What happens if you do have an accident?

    And which company is your car insured by?

    Sorry for all the questions...

    The $30/year insurance I was talking about is liability to the other persons car but not to passengers riding in his own car.
    Is that something worth to consider or?...

    I deal with Progresso - the bank. They offer insurance.

    Its important to have insurance.... there are a lot of posts about needing a RD driving license, and so on.

    Use the search..... they can put you in jail while they investigate if you don't have the right policy.

    I don't like the answer you got about " not worth having insurance." I'm sure most here would disagree with that advice...... you'll find out!!
