"Arya Panya (ph. 0140554300) is the man who looks after carnets in Paris." Recommended by Jenny Kelso & Peter Hendricks in France. "He seems much more knowledgeable than our local office here in Nice. Cost: â‚¬114 for club membership, â‚¬150 for carnet + deposit of 150% of Argus (semi-official valuation) per vehicle."
More info from Peter:
"Club membership plus carnet fee is 199â‚¬ Security deposits: 250% Egypt, minimum 3.850 â‚¬ 150% Iran, minimum 3200â‚¬ 100% rest of the world, minimum 2300â‚¬ This is based on the semi-official 'Argus' value of the vehicle. Normally, they will NOT issue carnets for foreign registered vehicles. The reason for this is apparently a directive by the AIT allowing only the auto clubs of the country where the vehicle is registered to issue the carnet!"
