Our COVID-19 Safety Measures

What we're doing to keep your students safe

We want you to rest assured that the safety and well-being of your school group continues to be our utmost priority.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have evolved our operating protocol to build in additional measures on our existing safety and risk mitigation strategy from trip development all the way through to your safe return.

We have also introduced more flexible terms and conditions surrounding deposits and payments guaranteeing more financial security for your school community.

  • We've increased our safety measures to help manage COVID on trips operated by us.
  • More flexible terms and conditions have been implemented to enqure more financial security for your school community.
  • Our development staff have been trained in additional risk management when tailoring the programs specifically for your school.
  • All guides have been trained on these actions which include field protocols that have been developed also in conjunction with our medical consultant Dr Ross Anderson.
  • Developed thorough health and hygiene protocols, including thorough cleaning schedules for all high touch surfaces, gear and group equipment and increased passenger screening process to identify high risk passengers.
