As we know where there's an element of adventure there will always be an element of risk. Our job is to make sure the risks are assessed, minimised and managed by the right people.
Monitored and reviewed each year, we carry out comprehensive
risk assessments and safety audits following the highest standards,
guidelines and industry/government practice expressed by: BS8848 Trading
Standards, The Year Out Group and the Gap Year Association.
Our risk assessments examine and ensure that the projects are safe, responsible and sustainable, the leaders are competent, the accommodation secure and all vehicles used are roadworthy.
Medical evacuation access and emergency communications implemented by professional medics, counsellors and advisors ensure emergencies are swiftly resolved.
We're a founding member of the Year Out Group, first British company to be accredited by the American Gap Year Association, and a partner of Foreign Office’s 'Know Before You Go' campaign
We also protect your money through a Non-Statutory Trust Account (100% protection for peace of mind) and if we book your flights we will use STA Travel, who have an ATOL Insurance Bond (3206) through the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
