I've just quoted the value of the bike when I purchased it (as I still have the receipt). I sent the form off today, so we will see...
I used this value to work out he guarantee (500% for Egypt, etc). It depends on where you intend to go as to the value that has to be covered. For Africa (excluding Egypt) I think it is 200%.
It's probably easiest to contact Paul Gowen at the RAC - he's very helpful and has emailed me on several occasions, as I got very confused about the whole guarantee/insurance stuff. He's busy at the moment as Sue has gone on holiday, so he's on his own.
Incidentally it has taken me 5 weeks!!!! to get my bank to sort out my guarantee. My own branch said 'no way' - so I went to another branch and spoke to someone who knew all about it and helped me sort it all out.
Don't leave it too late - I'm sitting here waiting to go - all I need is my carnet!
