International Auto Insurance for Individuals

International Auto Insurance for individualsSince 1947, Clements has been exclusively dedicated to delivering the best international car insurance to expatriated individuals, worldwide.  Clements can protect your vehicle while you are overseas with comprehensive and affordable insurance –tailored-made for your needs– including Physical Damage coverage with automatic Political Violence protection. What’s more, Clements’ unsurpassed service and claims support has been widely recognized in the industry, which is why Clements is the insurer of choice to most diplomats and international executives around the world.

Clements’ international car insurance solutions provide the following coverage:

  • Physical Damage

Clements’ Physical Damage policy protects against collision, theft and damage, even political violence.  Clements customers also benefit from our “Accident Forgiveness” program, which means that your first accident would not affect your base rate. Depending on the local requirements of your destination, a Physical Damage policy should be combined with Third Party Liability or Excess Liability for additional supplemental coverage.

  • Third Party Liability

In many countries, Clements can provide the locally required Third Party coverage in conjunction with your existing Clements policy. With this policy, licensed drivers are covered for liability resulting from bodily injury and/or property damage to others.  Some countries may require that Third Party Liability policies be issued through a local insurance carrier.  If you face this scenario, Clements strongly recommends Physical Damage and Excess Liability to ensure you have seamless international, hard-currency coverage beyond the locally-required coverage.

  • Excess Liability

Often, Third Party Liability policies purchased through local providers do not provide an adequate level of coverage for expats. That means in case of an accident where there is liability exposure, basic local currency coverage most likely will be insufficient to settle all claims.  To eliminate such a potential gap in coverage, Clements’ supplemental Excess Liability insurance is an ideal solution for true peace of mind.


 Key Benefits Include:

  •  Accident Forgiveness — your low rate stays the same even after your first accident
  • Worldwide Liability Protection — you will still be covered if an accident-related case follows you back home
  • Universal Coverage — policy adjusts to minimum local liability requirement where applicable
  • Transit Coverage — all-risk, from departure to arrival
  • Fast & Efficient Claim Processing — reimbursements paid in Euro, USD and other major currencies
