We are unable to provide Carnet write off service it has to clear at the customs
station at Malaysia/Thailand boarder which we do not have an office there and is
too far away from our Penang office. The owner can do it himself at the customs
check point Or he can get travel agent which has some counter there to assist him
and he just have to pay them some service fee.

Pls note that the above charges excluding Goods-In-Transit Insurance.

Hi Brat,
The Carnet is invaluable as you venture further,the Malaysian/Thai border will be your first entry into the Carnet,the officers there are friendly and helpful and the first thing you will find is the Thai girls smiling at you when the do the paperwork.
Remember the Carnet is their insurance that you don't sell your bike and runaway without paying the relevant taxes.
I spent a year up their and had no troubles crossing borders with a Carnet, even though some Asian countries don't recognise them, don't forget you have to come back to Oz sometime!

Cheers

Hi Tom, I've been told by AAA that the carnet is only used by the malaysian and Singapore governments, hard to justify the cost ($800 au) to travel through Malaysia!

2% of 150% of bike value plus $350 issue cost plus $200 refundable deposit! I've valued the bike at $15,000. Therefore either $22,500 in trust plus $350, or $800 becomes expensive!
