Carnet from afar...or...how the heck???
I'm in the US. I'll be buying a 2nd hand bike in the UK for a tour that will include Egypt. The Canadian Auto.Assoc. is balking at the trans Atlantic-ness of this arrangement. The RAC is being slow in responding to email and I can't raise them on the phone. So, the question is: How long a process is securing a carnet once in England and will my lack of local address (and bank) and non-residency be of negative impact? Can the carnet be secured with a credit card?
Are there agents that can handle these affairs? It seems like a good little business for someone to open up.
If anyone can set me straight on this, I'd be much obliged. I don't depart until October 1st and the machine will (I hope) be purchased well beforehand. These last months of preparation seem to zip by quickly. Thanks for anything.
