Hello Everyone,
I'm moving to the DR in a few months and needed to get a feel on living costs. Have seen some good posts already (http://www.dr1.com/forums/living/75471-cost-living-dr.html) but need some estimates on car insurance.
Would be looking to buy used around D$300k-D$350k. Any ideas on premiums - full coverage? Understand CDC (Casa de condctr) would be an additional D$900-D$1k annually. Thanks.

Hey Rolito,

I'm paying around us$1.3K/annum for full coverage with Banreservas insurance for a Prado that might be worth ~us$30K.

Rolito,
Full cover on a car in your quoted price range would be around RD$25,000 a year. I don't know what kind of vehicle you have in mind but you should know that most insurance companies will not give full cover on a car which is ten or more years old.
Good luck
Bryan
