Carnet de passages

Hi HUBB.

I have i question concerning the carnet.

Do I need one covering all countries, or do I need one per country.

How much is it if my pike is worth around 7000euro?

Thanks

carnet clarification

One carnet will do. You do not need one for all countries. It is something that is required by (i think) over 100 countries. There should be some organization near you that will give you a completed list of all the countries that need one. As far as the cost of your bike goes, they should have a work sheet at this organization that will help you total out the amount that you need to set aside. Here in america we use the CAA which has two options for coverage. You can either set aside the total cost of what would be your most expensive countries fees and duties for importation or the second option is something like an insurance policy and initially you would set aside less, but the fees end up being more when you return with your bike to you country. The first option you would ultimately pay more should they collect and in the end when you get your money back and your bike is in your own country you pay less. The idea is that you would have to tie up more money. The second option you pay more for in the end but you end up risking less should you encounter a situation where the money needs to be collected. If you would like to see how the carnet works google CAA and it will explain it better. But that is just for Americans and Canadians ( You probaby should double check my last statement) I am in the process myself and for my KLR 650 I could have set aside 17000 dollars or 5800 dollars depending on whether i decided to have a letter of credit or purchase the idenmity policy. I chose 17000 because i would get back more in the end when i bring back the bike to USA. But it is more of a risk.
