On September 17th, RL Davidson, the underwriter, told the RAC to stop issuing Carnets for Yemen, Pakistan, Oman, Egypt, India and Afganistan. The AA, with the same underwriter from what I can make out, has also excluded Pakistan and Egypt and made India, Jordan, Syria, Iran, Bangladesh and Libya with special conditions, read that as lots more money. Campbell Irvine are also offering Carnets but through the AA, I think.
Why this difference in countries, I don't know but Egypt is now a no go from UK agencies.
Does anyone know of a foreign agency offering a Carnet for a British registered vehicle for Egypt?
