COVID 19 INformation
Statement December 2020
Individual Adult Team Members - expeditions COVID Guarantee
For our individual adult team members, if you are forced to withdraw from your expedition because you have tested positive for COVID-19, then we will refund you the full cost of your expedition. This guarantee is subject to you receiving a positive test result within 21 days of the expedition departure date. To receive a refund, you must provide the test results to Venture Force by email prior to the expedition departure date.
School Expeditions Insurance
We purchase fully comprehensive travel, medical and repatriation insurance for the duration of the expedition for all our school teams. This covers teams for any medical issues, including COVID-19, that may arise during the expedition.
We also purchase pre-departure insurance for students on our school expeditions teams. At this time it is not possible for us to purchase pre-departure insurance for overseas expeditions that covers the full team for cancellation due to COVID 19. The government has recognised this gap in travel cancellation insurance and is currently working to put an indemnity in place that will give schools cover against coronavirus travel cancellation in the future.
