Deposits

€900 per rickshaw. Ain’t cheap but with experience we’ve found that it’s the right number to make sure that no matter how hard you party after the day’s stage that you’ll remember not to lose your mobile or not to crash your auto rickshaw just for the hell of it without stopping to consider the deposit. It’s also a built in expense account if you simply want the support mechanics to do your repairs without locating & negotiating repair costs along the way. Prices for repairs and replacements are listed in the roadbook that you receive prior to the event.

Accommodation

Accommodations are the responsibility of participants. In the roadbook you get a list of hotel/hostel options with as much information as possible. You can choose based on your priorities, though keep in mind that we are traveling during tourist season in some places that have very few options to start with. If you really want to you can camp out, but be warned: the rickshaw isn’t the most comfortable sleeping option. To make things easier for participants we offer limited accommodation packages before the start of the event. Our goal is to establish “best of” and “most budget friendly” packages, however these are really approximations based on what’s available en route. We cannot make both choices available to all participants as it is on a “first come, first serve” basis.

Daily Costs

After several events we’re pretty good at setting basic guidelines for how much money you can squeak by on or how much you’ll need to do it in high style. India is much cheaper than other parts of the world but is not nearly as cheap as it is often supposed. The lower-end options are quite inexpensive but like all other parts of the world be prepared to pay for 5 star hotels and excellent service at rates not much different than ones you are familiar with. There’s sightseeing, souvenirs and unique must try experiences every where. Our average participant budget is approximately €40 per day per person.
