ADDITIONAL COSTS

    Besides the registration fee, there are other costs that participants should be aware of and take into consideration. Below is listed some of these, though the list may not be complete

FERRY CROSSING

Approximately 550€ for a return ticket between Almeria, in the south of Spain, and Nador (North-Morocco) for 2 persons and a standard 4×4. The crossing of the Mediterranean Sea takes about 7 hours.

The ferry ticket can be booked through the rally organisation as we take this ferry too.

FLIGHTS TICKETS

There are daily flights from several destinations in Europe and to Nador. 

Nador is located about 150 km from out first camp where the technical inspections will take place. It is possible to take a local taxi from Nador and to the campsite. 

From Dakar you can find daily flights to several destinations in Europe. 

FUEL PROVISIONS

The fuel price is more or less the same as in Europe. However, there can be quite some distance between gas stations in the countries we pass through. We reccomend that you fill up your vehicle whenever you have the chance.

Every day you will get info at the evening briefing on when and where you can get fuel. In all the countries we pass through you can easily get Diesel but Petrol can some days be difficult. Keeping an extra jerrycan with your service team is always a good idea. 

Please be aware that the petrol available isn’t always of the same standard as in Europe. 

 

SERVICE & FOOD

You have different choices in regards to service and food in the Real Way to Dakar rally: 

1. Be on you own

2. Bring your own service team

3. Bring your own service team but get food from ORG. 

4. Get service and food from ORG. 

Your can read more about the different options for service and food here. 

SATELLITE PHONE

It is up to you if you want to bring a satellite phone with you. However, some parts of the rally takes place in areas with no or very limited phone coverage, so we recommend that all vehicles have a satellite phone. 

We will equip you with an GPS tracker where you can contact ORG if you have technical or medical issues. To bring a satellite phone is for extra safety.

GPS UNIT

In your vehicle/MC you must bring one (or more) gps-device(s) loaded with the route. You may also find it helpful to bring some electronic maps loaded on to your device.

The rally route is based on a list of gps-points that are supplied every night at the briefing. You must bring an usb-stick to get the list of waypoints as well as the route for each day. The file is a .gpx file which is a Garmin format, readable in most standard gps-devices
