I have my car insured with Alpha Insurance Company, it seems a very reasonable price to me, recommended by Bank Manager (yes I know $$$) but have not had a claim.
They are the same company that seems to have a lead on car personal injury insurance here and just used them for this type of insurance included in registration 660 pesos for 12 months.
I saw on their sign I am pretty sure, they do household/contents insurance also,but like the others, I have not got it for the house.
Wife and I were only talking about it a couple of days ago and will inquire tomorrow when in Town.

I got a quote a few years ago when we finished our house. The price seemed reasonable until they said earthquake wasn't included. So I am also "naked". Don't know if can get contents coverage only, will have to check into that.

LOL, that's my line Chuck, "google is my best friend". I did google on your advice and yes there are a plethora of companies offering insurances but I'm too lazy to pursue for prices as well as reading the fine print from each quoting company. So like the OP I was interested in what others do, their experiences.
Dave (hogrider) could you also PM me the company details as I know you are pretty astute with most things.

Cheers, Steve.

No home insurance for me. I doubt it would be valid if I tried to use it anyway. The company would probably go out of business the hour before my claim. lol

Forced to buy the required auto insurance, otherwise I would not bother with that as well. Its only good for up to 100k pesos and it would not cover me anyway as the car is in a relatives name.

None of my business, but I do think you should sort that out, not so much for your own cover, but should you be involved in an accident causing death or injury to a third party.

Correct, He will have to make at least five (5) good posts before he is able to use the PM system on the site. For now, only a moderator is able to send a PM to him
