changing with the times
Whilst there is a positive vibe in the air that 2022 will be the year where we can get back to traveling overseas, we also understand that some people may have concerns regarding paying money for a trip that may be postponed along with vaccination requirements and quarantine uncertainties.
That being said, we need to evolve, and can no longer expect people to pay a deposit for trips abroad.
Instead, we are introducing an Expression of Interest system, where you will be allocated a position on your chosen trip once you register, and you will not required to make any financial commitment until 4 weeks out from the adventure, once we are sure everything is going ahead.
We will slowly be re-introducing adventures mid-way through 2022, to places including Nepal, Africa and South America in 2023.
For the first half of 2022, we will be offering Australian adventures only, which will still require a deposit due to having to pre-purchase permits.
This naturally means that companies we partner with abroad now have to be more flexible, and not expect payment for essential items like internal travel, transfers, accommodation, guide allocation and permits until closer to the scheduled departure date.
It is time we all work together to get things moving forward in the right direction.
We are also in consultation with a leading insurance company that will cover you from trekking to scaling 8000m peaks, along with added Covid-19 protection, which will take the worry out of travel.
We are looking forward to good times ahead, and hopefully as the world adapts and opens up; to spending precious moments and creating life-long memories in the great outdoors.
