The PDF looks pretty good to me, but I'm with Rich on this one. What are the consequences of having a fake carnet and getting busted in, say, Libya? Although if I'm going to crash / lose / sell the bike somewhere I'd much rather have the fake. Same goes for it being stolen.
For my £1200 XT600 3AJ (at least that's what I'm claiming it's worth!)
I was told yesterday that I'm looking at a £300 insurance premium + costs of arounf £75 from the RAC. They've been very helpful.
The breakdown is:
Import duty @ 500% (Egypt) = £6000
Insurance Premium of 10% = £600
50% reimbursement on return = -£300
Sundries and admin = ~£100 ish.
The RAC are referring all Middle Eastern travellers to their insurers at the moment, so don't expect this price to hold if war breaks out! The above was based on single bike + rider travelling through E.Europe to Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, and Tunisia.
HTH - who was the contact for the fake carnets discussed elsewhere? Whoever you are, could you email me please? And does anyone have a real carnet in London that I could look at? (Is it watermarked special paper, for example?)
In the scale of my trip costs, 300 notes doesn't seem like a lot to pay for peace of mind....
