What happens if?

Expecting the unexpected is just another way of saying “prepare for everything”. We’ve spent decades doing exactly that.

What happens if the team isn’t able to travel to a destination?

If there is a situation that affects a team’s ability to travel to a designated country, Antipodeans can divert or delay the trip to an alternative time.

What happens if we have to be evacuated while visiting our destination?

Should our teams need emergency assistance due to the unlikely occurrence of civil unrest or natural disasters, Antipodeans insurance will arrange for prompt, emergency evacuation at no cost to the traveller.

What happens if I get injured or ill prior to departure?

If you have to cancel your trip due to injury or medical reasons, rest up. Your insurance has you covered.*

What happens if it’s a 40 degree day and my child has to work outside?

Our teams are not expected to work in conditions that are too physically challenging for them. We have risk assessments designed around acceptable conditions students can work in. We also constantly monitor trips to ensure these conditions are adhered to.

What happens if it’s freezing outside and they have to trek through snow?

Some of our teams trek in mountainous areas affected by snow at certain times of year. In the lead up to a trek, we keep an eye on weather reports and stay in touch with local partners. Risk assessments dictate an acceptable level of snow cover for a team to continue, or contingency plans if snow coverage poses a risk to the team. Treks can also be re-routed, with predetermined evacuation points utilised, if snow levels change dramatically during a trek.
