Hi Adam,

since you have the sheet, can you tell us the latest prices?

Nobody needs to deposit money in Mongolia.

Thanks god we bought the insurance ($30) On the first police stop after crossing the border between Khov and Ulgii we were asked just for the insurance and nothing else so it was a very well spent money!

Motorcycle insurance 1000 ccm / 1200 Rubel (16€) for 2 month at the Tsaganuur border after the official buildings on the left side.

Just drive past Tsaganuur, some bad stories on how they treat tourists.

You can also buy insurance in Ulgii / Olgii.

I didn't like the insurance people at the border at all, and sometimes they are closed when crossing late at night.
