We get ours in Senegal.
We passed to Senegal border without Ecowas and get it in St. Lous. We had 4 months for 17.375 cfa (26 euro). Our friends paid 15.000 cfa for 3 months. The office is nearby a bank (GPS coordinates 16.026701, -16.505271) in St. Louis. (The owners of the Zebrabar camping told us where to go).
Don’t buy this at the border!! It’s fake! We asked at the chief from the border if it’s ok he told us not to get it. The insurance looks really good but it’s not! Because you need a stamp on your ECOWAS and you need to carry the bill with you as a prove of payment which you don’t get on the border.
From Senegal to Congo (Brazzaville), we passed total 12 countries and only once in Guinea Bissau they asked for our traffic insurance.
ECOWAS is two pages one is writing those 14 countries. Other one writes Cameroon, Gabon and Congo (Brazzaville). We have used it in all those countries.
