Travel Safety

Avoid travelling mishaps and pitfalls by being prepared. Our Travel Safety Packs and Travel Safety Courses will empower, educate and enrich your travel experience before you even go by giving you vital knowledge and tips that will keep you safe.

Travel Safety Packs

Our downloadable Travel Safety Packs are must reads before you or your loved ones head off. They are not guidebooks but are to be used to help you pack, prepare and make the most of your adventure! We have split the packs into 4 categories: Preparing for your Trip, While you are Away, Staying Safe as you Travel and Self Defence & Basic First Aid. Each pack is full of valuable information and tips on ways to ensure your own safety before you head off and while you are away.

Our packs are UNIQUE as we draw upon our self defence background and training to give you an insight into various Self Defence, Breakaway Skills and First Aid that will be crucial if you ever find yourself in a dangerous situation!

For the Adventurer

So you’ve decided to take an adventure!

Why we think YOU should consider our course…

We were once in a position very much like yours!  Planning our first big trip to different areas of the world, nervous yet excited…

We have enjoyed and feel grateful for our travel experiences and have so many great memories that we can share and cherish forever.  Yet we both believe we didn’t always reach the full potential of some of our trips.  Whether it was overpacking, or lack of local knowledge or not knowing how to deal with an uncomfortable situation.  We know taking a travel course would have helped us make the most of every moment we were away. So this is the information we wish we had known coming straight to you in the form of one of our fun and interactive courses.

Family and Friends of the Adventurer

Its becoming more and more popular for the younger generations to decide on taking large trips/holidays or ‘gap years’ to places all over the globe.  This can include students looking to travel before continuing their studies or pursuing their chosen career path. Quite frankly it can be a little overwhelming for you parents. However savvy or experienced your child may be, it’s only natural to worry about their wellbeing and how they will handle these new experiences.  In this situation we really believe it is best to equip these youngsters will the best knowledge and skills before they go.  We wish we had been given access to information like this before we went on our travelling and that’s why we are making it available to aspiring travellers now!

We have created the travel safety packs and courses to understand and deal with the myths, concerns and questions that many people have prior to planning and taking an adventurous trip for the first time or even the second or third…

We want to ensure that all students come away feeling they have had a really well rounded course experience. Not only do we provide excellent travel information but we also emphasise the importance of physical and verbal skills needed to diffuse and defend yourself in a conflict situation while abroad.  This course will also help them understand various safety models and laws to help them StaySafe while enjoying themselves abroad!
