Ipsala Border Crossing

Hi all.
I am thinking about driving to Thessaloniki.
Has anybody got anithing to say about Ipsala border checkpoint?
And one more thing: do they sell Green Card insurance policies there or should I buy one here in Bodrum?
Thank you in advance.

Re: Ipsala Border Crossing

You can purchase Green Card insurance in Bodrum or at the border.
I would suggest you buy it in Bodrum and have it done and dusted rather than the hassle at the border.

Re: Ipsala Border Crossing

I would go with an internationally recognised one, eg Allianz. We had a claim through them last year in Turkey on our fully comp (kasko). They paid up without a murmur and all was done with their English speaking staff by telephone.

Re: Ipsala Border Crossing

Worth filling your car up in Turkey, I've always found a lack of garages in Greece, some of which will not take debit/credit cards either.

Re: Ipsala Border Crossing

Do be certain that you have ALL the documents for your car with you, not just it's passport. We take everything in a separate folder, they don't always want to see everything, but better to have it with you. As with any border control, just be patient if there are delays, and remain polite. There are plenty of filling stations in Greece, just not many on the motorway, but signs will direct you. We usually fill up in Kesan (about 25km before the border) and that does us to our next stop way after Thessloniki. Enjoy the trip!
