And remember, unlike other banger rallies the Two Ball banger rally has a realistic banger budget and it is open to ALL cars. 


The Banger ...

£567 is the target. However we are aware that prices have increased recently so there is wiggle room on this value! Or bring your daily drive/pride and joy. 


Insurance ...

Each vehicle will need to be fully insured as will the team drivers. We will ask to see proof of insurance at registration. If you are driving a banger, there are specialist insurance companies who will provide this such as Herts/Sterling Insurance Consultants.

As a guide, last year we paid £124 for 10 days cover, two male drivers in a 1.8 petrol. It’s not as expensive as you may think, but you need it. If you are under 21, check you can obtain insurance for this event.


Accommodation ...

This is really up to you, you can camp, you can sleep in the back of your car, you can youth hostel, you can sofa surf or you can treat yourself to a range of accommodation available in and around our destinations. As a guide expect to pay £50 to £80 for two sharing at a 3* hotel. Airbnb, Booking.com are great ways to get a good deal. Camping is also a great way to keep costs down. We have a list of suggested hotels and campsites that we use each year. 


Ferry/Tunnel Crossing ...

Depends if you decide to drive back to the UK? If not it’s one of the only times you may purchase a one way ticket! We pay £120 ish on a Folkstone-Calais tunnel, the ferry can be cheaper if booked in advance.


Toll Roads ...

This will depend on your chosen route, there will be times when we cannot avoid tolls in order to reach our final destination. Remember, the more in your team, the more costs are shared. 


Fuel ...

It is slightly cheaper across the channel but do not expect to be paying £1.80 per litre, you can estimate costs with our route millage. 


Breakdown Cover ...

We highly recommend this, the cost will be dependant on the make, model and age of your vehicle.


Vignettes ...

Needed on the Original route to drive on motorways in Austria and Switzerland. Required for the Romanian route for Austria, Hungary & Romania. 


Flights ...

If you decide to scrap your car in France/Spain/Portugal/Romania, this will be the quickest way back to the UK. Easyjet fly from Nice, France to Gatwick, Stanstead, Liverpool, Newcastle & Edinburgh. Many flights also available from Barcelona back to the UK. Flights readily available from Lisbon and Bucharest OTP. Skyscsanner is a great App to check out flight routes and prices.
