Changing Gran Canaria insurance company: It’s simply about the timing

Changing Gran Canaria insurance company is simple. Just make sure you get the timing right.

By then, it’s too late and you have to wait another year to cancel the policy.

Don't fall into the bar Gran Canaria car insurance trap

Gran Canaria car insurance: Don’t fall into the bar car insurance trap in Gran Canaria

Alex Bramwell: We bought a second-hand car in Gran Canaria over 10 years ago. A Ford Focus in fetching sky blue. 

It’s got the standard Las Palmas dents and scrapes, but has never given us any serious gip.

But 15 months ago, someone bumped into it while it was parked by our house. Luckily they were honest and the insurance companies moved in.

Quality Car insurance In Gran Canaria

Expat car insurance arrives in Gran Canaria with discounts up to 50%

Car insurance for Gran Canaria residents

Car insurance in Spain is pretty much the same as in the UK, you get basic and fully comprehensive insurance and a variety of policies in between. The only main difference is that roadside assistance is included as part of your policy as standard so you don’t need to then buy AA or RAC cover.

There are many insurance companies, but you rarely get the bargains you can pick up on the internet in the UK. You also have to pay for your insurance annually or every six months.

Due to bitter experience, we’d advise being careful with the cheapest quotes on the market as they always seem to include a catch. For example, some cheap quotes are cheap because you have to pay for any repairs and then claim the money back from the insurer (which can take months). Read this for a first person account of Gran Canaria car insurance problems.

Here’s a good place to start if you want quality car insurance in Gran Canaria with English-language support and excellent coverage.
