how much to drive into egypt with a truck

hi thinking of going through Egypt with our truck, we have heard that trucks have to pay a big 'tax' to get in from Jordan. most people do not give any info on their web pages about easing border crossing and what the customs expect to be given, we read a web site that said he had to pay £500 road tax to enter from Jordan but that is the only site we can find

hallo there

with a truck it is always a little bit difficuilt to give any kind of informations. Also the fees could change quickly. Also coming through the Sinai there are other regulations than coming from Libya or Sudan.
I think anyone will be very careful to give out any kind of information. So you will be best of to either contact an automobile club or an egyptain travel agency they could help you out with the informations. May be the best is to contact the egyptain automobile club in Cairo straight away for detailed infos if you can't get them anywhere else

sharing info

Thanks for the message Tango- we appreciate your good advice.
We had the same problem when we first started travelling- absolutely no-one would share information about costs. This made us absolutely determined to put full cost information on our web page. Maybe we will have to do the same again....
We all realise that costs can change quickly but travellers do need a rough idea about prices to start with- it does help immensely when planning a trip!

Hey Pumba!
Thanks for the input. We are still unsure of where to go- this blooming recession is a killer! Let us know when you get near Marmaris/ Fethiye and we'll send some info on places to sleep and eat. JEALOUSSSSSSSSSS!!
