Terms & Conditions
This document has been created to provide concrete terms for you to understand the implications of signing up for this event. All prospective participants must read it and mark/check the appropriate box on the sign-up page when filling out the form.
Drivers – Each driver must be in possession of an international driving license. If you’re a non-driving member of a team, you don’t need it.
Passengers – Any passengers that you wish to bring with you in your vehicle must be registered and paid as a team member. All passengers must be at least 18 years of age and must abide by all rules for drivers if they are going to drive at any time.
Descriptions – Any information on the Great Balkan Ride contained within the official website and/or brochures is correct at the time of publishing. However, the content or format of the event may change slightly until the rally commences. Organizers will inform all the participants about these changes. The Great Balkan Ride organization will not accept responsibility or liability for unforeseen events in the course of the rally that fall beyond the remit of its competence and influence. No personal loss or injury can be accepted from events resulting in the application of information from this website.
Payment – Payment for the Great Balkan Ride is due in full upon sign-up. All payments are final and cannot be altered or substituted. Entrance fees may be refunded only if the rally is cancelled for any reason. Entry fees can also be transferred to the next Great Balkan Ride if the applicant cannot participate in the upcoming event and informs the organizers at least 45 days prior to the flag off.
Teams – Teams may consist of any combination of one, two, three or four individuals.
Maintenance and Repair – Team members are solely responsible for any fuel costs, repairs, and any other costs associated with their event vehicle. Upon the instance of a breakdown, the teams will be responsible to procure the services of local mechanic, since the organizers will provide no repair services en route.
Accommodation – The organizers and managers of the Great Balkan Ride will provide a list of accommodations or lodging options for every night during the trip but will not arrange accommodations or boarding. Each team can decide freely where to spend the night according to their budget, but there will be a base camp or hotel every day, where the organizers can be found. All accommodations must be arranged and paid for by the participant(s).
Sponsor Relations – Teams are required to respect the sponsors of the event and all sponsorship material presented during the course of the rally. Sponsorship material for official sponsors of the Great Balkan Ride will be displayed on your team’s car. Participants can request not to display any form of sponsorship material on their vehicle, but will have to pay an additional €2000 with the entry fee. For further details please contact the organizers.
Local Interaction – As a team member in an international rally event, we strongly request to respect the various customs, traditions, and cultural differences that you may encounter at any point in your journey. Blatant disrespect for these customs, traditions, and cultural differences will result in the disqualification of the team from the competition category.
