"If you take good care of your car, it will take care of you on the road"
Motor Third Party Liability Insurance (MTPL) is compulsory in the Republic of Bulgaria. When concluding MTPL, it provides insurance cover for damages caused by your car to other road users or other people’s property.
The insurance is valid on the territory of each member state of the European Union and the countries belonging to the European Economic Area. The Green Card certificate, issued free of charge to each insurance policy, covers the responsibility of the driver of the car for all other countries that are members of the international Green Card agreement.
The main factors for determining the price of MTPL insurance are:
- Type and technical characteristics of the car – engine capacity, total weight or load capacity, number of seats, year of manufacture, fuel type.
- Age and driving experience of the owner / usual driver.
- Registration address and area of management.
According to the current tariffs, certain Insurers apply additional conditions when determining the price of the insurance.

The sum insured of the car is equal to the actual price of the car as at date of concluding the insurance. It is determined by the methodology of insurance companies.

Factors determining price are:
- Type of car
- Insurance value
- Year of manufacture
