UK government CDP

Hi
I see the UK gov has taken over providing CDPs (through a 3rd party by the looks of it).
Anyone know the price structure?
Many thanks

It was RAC I think until 2013, and CARS took over, so have CARS stopped being the provider?

No, you’re right, CARS are the provider - I saw it on a government website so thought they were an agency so thanks for clearing that up.
What’s the pricing structure these days?

Dunno, give them a call? Their website doesn't show the full options.

Their FAQ page shows the prices for the carnet, but not the deposit which will depend on the value of your vehicle.

I found CARs shockingly overpriced and slow. Suggest you try another organisation like TCS in Switzerland (whom I used for my U.K. registered vehicle).

Germany’s ADAC wouldn’t do British vehicles.

Dunno how Brexshit has affected this.

We dealt with CARS for carnets in 2017 and 2018 - good service (Sukie was excellent) and no complaints.

Hi buddy,

Can you share details of the CarNet company in Switzerland so I can get a quote for a British-registered vehicle?

There are a number of different authorised issuers who will do foreign vehicles/bikes.
