€1000 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.
