Financial

Part of a challenge is that nothing should stand in your way. That includes the cost of the adventure. To keep people with all kinds of budgets participating in the Caucasian Challenge, we’ve tried to keep costs low, find sponsors and provide low-cost alternatives for necessary expenses.

 

That’s why one of our most important goals is to manage budget requirements and devise low-cost solutions, so we can open the Caucasian Challenge and our other events to virtually anyone.  You supply the thirst for adventure, and we’ll make it happen for you!

LIMITED PLACES: only 30 teams can sign up for the 2014 event!

How much money do I need to do this?

That depends on what you choose for accommodations, the fuel-efficiency of your vehicle, what you want to eat and drink along the way and many other things of course.



To help make this less abstract we’ve put together a table of high and low range options for a team of two (see below). You can make it even cheaper if you want to, a 3rd or 4th team member is a a good solution for cost saving (on petrol, etc).

General costs, basic figures
Costs Low(er) budget for 2 pers. High(er) budget for 2 pers.
Visa 30 € 30 €
Vehicle insurance 50 € 50 €
Petrol 480 € 700 €
Highway toll 30 € 30 €
Accommodation 650 € 850 €
Eats (no booze included) 200 € 350 €
Car repairs 150 € 300 €
Bribes 40 € 40 €
TOTAL 1,630 € 2,350 €

Important Note:It’s also important to have some reserve cash in case of emergency, since not all countries are required to save your ass if you can’t pay for it on the spot. We’d ballpark it at around 2,000 Euros for the team.
