  1. I´d just like to point out if you guy´s who are looking into car insurance, absolutely don´t go with AXA. I had Viriyah for my first years here in Thailand and have nothing but good to say about them, had only one incident (hit and run) so the car was fixed 100% with proper Toyota garage and no extra payment since it was first class insurance. Later on my friend started to sell insurance for AXA so I of cause wanted to support/buy from him which looked to be a good 1 class insurance. After 2 years two of my cars had a little scratches and bumps here and there so I wanted to get it fixed with my first class insurance. For starters I had to pay 1000 bht for each since it was hit and run/own damage plus 1000 bht for each place on each car. So I had to pay 8000 Bht for the two cars (on top of the first class yearly fee´s) and of cause I was not too happy. Anyway angry get´s you nowhere in the LOS so the cars were brought to the garages after waiting for a month to get in, who by the way were located in the jungle literally, but two different garages though. When I picked up the cars, they looked like my 5 year old son went on a rampage with a can of spray, terrible job but AXA say´d it´s just like that in Thailand. Few months later the paint started to bubble up and fall off so i saw they hadn´t even sandpapered the old paint down and now everything was falling off. I took them back to AXA and show´d them. They´re answer was so sorry for this, but we can make a new claim for you and you will only have to pay 1000 baht but we will make sure you will get the best garage. Again smile and pay. After another jungle party, well the job looked to be better this time but not better than that you could easily see the car had been damaged on those spots before, so better job but still not good. Within one year later the same thing, bubbles, paint braking up/falling off and the same thing, but this time I already did my research and I said i´d like to take the cars to a proper garage to get it done for good. The answer was "no we don´t work with this garage" so what about Toyota "no you can not we don´t work with Toyota unless the car is brand new" So I said what options do I have? "well we have a very good garage bla bla bla" so I asked can you please just pay me the damage so I can take care of this by myself and I´ll be responsible if the cost is higher. The answer was NO. So basically AXA will force you to use they´re cheap jungle garages and they will be so nice to you when everything goes south, that they will find you a new garage in the jungle and you "only" have to pay the 1000 bht and they will "fix you a new claim" My point is avoid to buy insurance from companies like AXA. I´ve done a research lately and it seem´s to be Viriyah, Mugan Thai and Thanachart who people are most satisfied with.

  3. Thanks guy´s Really appreciated.
  4. Hi all, I need a tourist visa 3 months (6 month´s would be nice though) and I´d like to go to Cambodia for example or Myanmar. I looked at some topics here already but they seem to be old. Is there anybody that knows for example if i´d go to Pnom penn (Cambodia) by air, can I get the 3 or 6 months tourist visa? Appreciate all Help. Cheers.
  5. On Monday, Morten Krogsholm reported the crime to the Thonglor Police Station, filing his statement so he can get some compensation from his insurance company. ???? You wonder what???
  6. Disgusting beyond belief. I wish the two friends all the very best of luck and hope you get justice for Raymond. I totally agree with you KASABIAN. Fight for him and make all the world see what´s happening so it should be fair judgement. Good luck and all the best for you guy´s.
