For info, the insurance that available for purchase at those border seller, is only to cover the 3rd party Thai people bodily injury in case of an accident happen and involving Thai citizen.

Their properties (if any) is not covered by the insurance sold on the border (before entering Thailand).

You need to purchase the Por lor Bor (compulsory insurance for vehicle in the Land of Smile)

For motorcar the validity is 2 weeks minimum and for motorcycle minimum as 3 Months.
The one that they sell on border for 2 weeks, the validity is questionable if you purchase it for your motorbike.

Then you (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) to purchase the 3rd Party voluntary insurance from the Thai insurance agent or company they called it 3+ voluntary vehicle insurance.

This insurance to cover the damage caused for the Thai Citizen properties (Car/Motorcycle/Lembu and so forth) and you can only purchased in one year duration.

Example

They will give you a print out that need to stick into your windshields and clearly mention the car registration number validity of the insurance (one year) and the issuing agent. (Some Thai police roadblock will ask for this especially in northern Thailand after BKK)

If I not mistaken, if you were going nearby they can just ignore it.
Because I going to Krabi, furthermore I will travel more than 100km to the destination, so they want it.

Let me tell you my real case,
that time i enter Sg. Golok Immigration, I have the authorize letter as well but without Commission of Oath(COO) Stamp, I still proceed without asking around, at the end the officer there told me I need the stamp to proceed due to far travelling, and they just let me go because that day is holiday, there is no COO working at all.
*
i've been in and out from diff immigration checkpoint, either via bike or car, convoy or solo, all these place allows copy geran (and diff vehicle owner with authorize letter and copy ic) except sg kolok. this place is the only place that usually got problem
its because of the violence and bombing over there, their rules can be different at times. at one time i can just go with just a copy of my geran.
at one time, i cant, must have original, and i can see so many people have to turn back,.

but then hor, if you got money then eveything can settle.

The authorize letter no need to have the commissioner of oath stamp. You can even sign on behalf lol just make sure to bring the owner's IC photocopy.

Hi there,

If you are force to use photocopy of reg card, you can go to jpj there ask them to certify your photostat copy, of course you need to prepare the photostat copy yourself.

Well if you want to save your hassle, just request the original copy from your loan representative bank. They will give you back if your installment is well payment and no late payment.

Hi there,

This is not required by Thailand, but this is geographical coverage extension by your car insurance.
Originally our car insurance only cover Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore only, the rest of the country u need to top up.
For more details you can check with your insurance company.

Well you can go back the bank and request the original car geran.
For my opinion, This is less hassle than you get the JPJ certify true copy. smile.gif

Hi there,

thanks for the appreciate.

The last time i enter Singapore from Tuas quite straight forward, they just need you to have valid road Tax(take photo with your phone and show them for Ez Link purchase) and purchase their Ez link(if your car is 1st time visit), then you are good to go. smile.gif

This endorsement just to cover your vehicle damage when involve in an accident inside the kingdom of Thai..

If you don't have this endorsement, whatever repair cost/towing to the border is not covered by your own car insurance.

For my peace of mind, I better endorsed.

Hi there,

like myself that time driving Proton Saga FLX 2011, before I go I had ask proton about the fuel. But they still ask me to refer manual as I already know that manual state that minimum fuel requirement is RON95.

and that time I fuel up at Hatyai (RM4.93 per Litre for Caltex Gold 95) and Trang (RM5.12 per Litre for Caltex Gold 95)

my point is, I dont want any trouble regarding car when the car is not at your own territory. Unless you pretty confident your car can survive with that gasohol brows.gif

RON 95 is just the rating, Gasohol actually has a much higher RON rating. Adding alcohol to gasoline (pure alcohol, dont add vodka drinks) increases the octane rating so if your car needs RON 97 as a minimum you can use it, however depending on the blend, the minimum will be RON 95 .

There are 2 ratings for fuel, the octane rating and the anti knock index. Every engine is designed to run at a minimum of those except diesels. Diesels will run on any heavy hydrocarbons that will only combust under heavy pressure so you can use used cooking oil as long as you process it to the same standards as the diesel at the pump. There is a catch in that you will get significantly less fuel economy with alcohol blended petrol but you can get more power potentially depending on the ECU. A lot of cars will run on this fuel without any modifications but if your car is from the 90s or early 2000s you can check if its designed for other fuels or not. However usually as long as the fuel has the same octane and anti knock index or better than rated for your car you're good to go (for petrol). For diesel however it doesnt matter what fuel you use, but those injectors on newer cars are sensitive, so if you decide to run stuff like cooking oil, make sure to process it to the same fineness as the diesel at the pump, so its going to take precision filters and processing (like ensuring the PH value accurately too).

Note that you dont need euro diesel to run your diesel car, the cheap so called crappy diesel at our station pumps will run them fine, no difference in their performance or longevity either. Australia is like us in our diesel quality and they have a lot of people driving diesels, i would not worry even if you have a TDI. Even though ethonal blended fuel will have less range, the difference is price, so just calculate based on mileage or even the car's onboard trip meter and compare to the difference in price.
