Urgent !!! Affordable Carnet Wanted Please.
 
Dear all

I am looking for an affordable carnet for Africa to drive from Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique please.

Please note that i am a Brit travelled from UK and now stuck in Egypt and would require the documents sent by DHL to Cairo.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Welcome to the Hubb and sorry to read you're stuck in Egypt. Bit confused how you can be already there without a carnet as you need one to enter Egypt- still-
If you are British and the vehicle is registered in the UK, you need to get in touch with Paul Cowan at the RAC.
It is not going to be an 'instant' affair-
Information here All the forms you'll need are on the same website.

You'll need to either pay an insurance policy, arrange a bank guarantee or put down a big deposit. Paul Gowan, whilst very helpful he is also very busy at this time of the year.
If your circumstances are dire, he may be able to squeeze you in faster but normally needs a month in quiet times.
Good luck

P.S on the top right hand side of the page, you'll see a search option- all the info you need is already on the H.U. site but you do have to do a search. As you sound stressed, I've put the link to the RAC there for you.

Cheers mate!!!!! thank you for the infor. I have already contacted the rac last night and still waiting for reply.

Yes I am stressed though but enjoying the sun and the pyramids for the time being.

Will keep you posted on the outcome

Respect!!

ahem...I am now even more confused about the purpose of your post as you say you already have contacted the RAC yesterday....:confused1:

Not to worry- glad to hear you are enjoying the pyramids you lucky person:Beach:
No need to keep us posted of outcome!!

Paul G got my carnet couriered out to me in Malaysia in pretty good time so you should be fine. However I would suggest you call Paul personally as he doesn't always have time to answer emails.

So, what did customs say when you arrived at the Egypt border with no carnet,

Am I missing some thing?

The customs at Sallum were happy to let me into the country so that I can organise the carnet here in Cairo. They even said I am not the first Brit to turn up at the border without this and will not be shipping the car back to the UK.
Thank you for your concern.

OK,
I see,
So you had come from Libya to Egypt ?

I am thinking along the lines that he 'had' a carnet, but just not of
sufficient value (800%) for Egypt ?
