Urgent: Carnet de Passage for Syria. Can I go without it?

Hi guys

going from London to Syria in July and really need help from you.
Is there a way to drive to Syria without Carnet? It is so ridiculously expensive that I would really prefer to go without it.

Please share your experiences, if you know, what to do.

Big thanks in advance
Marian

No problem, on border you'll pay some taxes and you're to Syria.

If all goes well, we will be riding Saudi - Jordan - Syria - Turkey and back all the way to Saudi and i have decided not to get me self a carnet for Syria & Jordan, primarily after reading a lot about the topic on this forum.

You don't need a "carnet du passage" for Syria and Jordan!
A temporary permit can be issued at the border.
Costs are:
Syria - 78$ (for 4WD) (must be paid at every entrance) and inssurance 50$ (valid for 1 month). Diesel tax: 100$/week.
Jordan - 20 JD (same in euro) and another 20 JD inssurance.
