5 Common Misconceptions About Our Expat Car Insurance In Portugal The complexity and sometimes confusion inherent in searching for a car insurance policy for a country with which you are not intimately familiar is precisely why the services of expatriate-focused Car Insurance Brokers In Portugal – such as ourselves here at Ibex – are so important.

We feel that one of our duties is therefore to educate expats seeking such insurance on some of the misconceptions and inaccurate presumptions that can arise in relation to topics like the below.

Yes, you can tow a trailer or caravan on your policy with us

You may have presumed that you wouldn’t be able to tow a caravan or trailer as an Ibex car insurance policyholder in Portugal, but you actually can – subject to certain conditions.


These include the trailer or caravan not being used on a commercial basis, as well as your vehicle and the trailer or caravan not exceeding a combined total of 10 metres when the latter is being towed.

No, you don’t need to produce an IPO certificate to secure cover

An IPO certificate is the Portuguese equivalent of an MOT certificate, and we do not ask you to produce this before we insure you.

However, it is still crucial to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy at all times, which is what the IPO certificate demonstrates. It is therefore still important in its own way. For more information visit: www.ibexinsure.com
