Petition update

RAC Stops issuing Carnets!!!

Nov 9, 2015 — We were made aware by the FIA several weeks ago that the RAC would cease to issue carnets in the UK before the end of the year.

At the time we did not feel it was right to share this news as it may have had an impact on jobs in the RAC.

Today the RAC have started to confirm publicly that they will cease issuing them before the year end.

During the last update we detailed that the FIA had completed their legal review.

They had come to the conclusion that the Letter of Non objection was not enforceable in the EU, and it is their belief that anyone in the EU should be allowed to apply for a carnet from any other issuer without barriers.

We believe the pressure we have put on these organisations to review the Global carnet agreement, and remove these barriers has hugely influenced the decision for the RAC to pull out of the market.

Going forward we do not have confirmation as to who will issue carnets for UK residents in the short term but hope to have some clarity in the near future.

We are also still pursuing our application to become carnet issuers in the UK and with the RAC withdrawing, it should make life a little easier. As mentioned before we will only issue carnets if we can provide comparable / cost effective rates…

Thank you to everyone who has supported this petition.

Once people start obtaining carnets from other sources we shall mark this petition as won!!
