What is frontier insurance?

Frontier insurance is a liability insurance for vehicles of non-EU countries. When non-EU citizens travel to an EU country with their vehicle; they will have to take out separate liability insurance, namely frontier insurance.

Frontier insurance ensures that vehicles of non-EU citizens are covered by liability insurance within the EU because in the EU, liability insurance is compulsory for vehicles.

Frontier insurance is also necessary when you buy a vehicle that is registered in Great Britain and transfer it to Germany.

You are from a non-EU country and wish to explore Europe with your own vehicle?

If you are from a non-EU country, for example the USA or Turkey, and you wish to cross the European border with your own car, motorcycle or camper, you will need frontier insurance. The customs of the state of entry will check the insurance policy. At this point, it is best to take out frontier insurance before your departure, because if you don’t have an insurance police at hand, you may be denied entry.
