    I spoke to them on Tuesday and they were unsure, they took my phone number and said they would ring when they sorted it out, no call yet.

    Hellas please could you put up the address of Alpha Bank - it's required from our banks to be able to wire entry payment.

    If you guys are talking to Mary Kerr that's great, but it still need to be resolved whether the ACU repatriation insurance and medical insurance is valid for the event. This is a critical element of the start permission and we do not want to spend another 300 euros on event insurance.

    I spoke to Mary Kerr today, she said I can do the event on my national ACU licence but will need to pay £80 for medical insurance I think she said.

    For those who are looking for a hotel, could be better if you could check with the Race Accommodation before you book one.
    Most of the rooms have been pre booked for your convenience and whatever we suggest you, has been checked by us and the Municipality Tourist Office.

    Hi there, I really am not familiar with your Federation policy.
    Usually starting permissions have a cost, if repatriation is included.
    The price sounds normal.

    That's great, but the booking system is too much hassle. To fill out a form with credit card details including security code, then scan it and email or fax it, or pay with a bank transfer. It's too complicated when you can just go to booking.com and do it in less than 30 seconds (and they charge you when you cheque out, not before). Maybe next year you could sort out a more simple system which just requires an online booking where the card is not charged until arrival.

    Outstanding Ollie! Some of us are flying in so if you need to get from the airport to the venue let me know and we can work something out.

    Yes I will be flying in, happy to work something out.

    I will be looking into all the details of the rally, flights and hotels once i'm back from the Tuareg Rally.

    I will probably meet you in Manchester and go from there.

    It will be good fun!

    Not willing to argue, but booking.com has a similar policy and does not even guarantee any mischarge for any credit card.
    So far we looked everywhere and there is noone charging anything during the checkout, apart from mini bar and telephone charges.
    In any case what we suggest is checked and quaranteed by us, hotel management is not our business, our aim was to make it easier for the competitors.

    Sure, and any help is appreciated. But if the orga is going to offer hotel accomodation, it needs to be as simple as an online booking process, not printing forms, faxing then sending money by bank transfer (for which there is a fee to be paid for sending money in euros) or faxing credit card details.
