We Give More
10% of our trip related turnover is donated to our strategic key partner charities who work to develop educational programmes around the world. This concept of social enterprise giving places no restrictions on the charity and allows them to spend the money where they decide is best.
Through a rigorous system of audits, both internal and external, and memberships with a wide range of organisations which require certain levels of client protection to be in place, you are have the added reassurance and peace of mind at being covered by layers of Insurance and Financial Bonding.
