Drive from UAE to (Europe)

Wed Feb 09, 2011 9:52 am

Hi everybody - Who are willing to drive from Abu Dhabi (UAE) to Europe, the trip will start after school exams (maybe end of June or begining of July) not FIXED!.
The duration about a month (30 days+/-) as I said, things are easy to be changed as we are flexible.
When we agreed on the plan, then we have to stick with the group, so everybody will be happy.

Well, I will be driving PORSCHE CARRERA (none turbo) with a friend.
Who wanna follow or join us?

Regards,

I'm planning to do the same drive, but with family and independently - but we can share the research and information so we help each other.

Two important issues that need answers are visas and car insurance.

Do all countries issue visas at the border? How long for?

What car insurance will you have?

PR - you are always welcome and if you are going with your family, it's better to trail with another car, just to be near someone who you can trust.
Isurance - (Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company) where I did mine.
International Driving License - I got from Al-ain (UAE Automobile Club)
Trip Ticket - UAE Automibile Club
Visa - You must have Schengen Visa and you will get Passing Visa from the border (36 hours) validation.

The problem - I know people who went from Istanbul to Bulgaria - Bulgarian border didn't give them Visa at the border (The official people said: They must got it from the Embassy)!!

Better to get all your Visa issues done from here and Go.

Trip Ticket normally it's used for the car, to make sure it's your car as they require it in each border.
PR - I guess it's time for you to do your "homework" :)
On the desert - you are in the lead and we followed ((Liwa dunes)).
On the road, I'm in the lead and you will follow - if you can keep up with me :) - follow da yellow - lool

Well, hope to see this trip happening on the Summer,
the plan to leave end of June and to be back b4 RAMADAN.

Well, Turkey is the place if you want to taste the Turkish food as I came with 10kg extra, altough we covered frm home and back within 15 days, KM 9000
