Licenses, Accreditations & Insurance

All of our important information in one place for you…take a look below for details about the licenses, accreditations and insurance policies that Adventure Expeditions holds.

  • Insurance

    Adventure Expeditions is fully insured for all programmes that it runs through insurer Activities Industry Mutual. Our cover includes:

    • £10 million liability insurance cover;
    • Employers liability;
    • Full cover under the Package Travel Regulations in case of third party failure.

    Cover goes far higher than the recommended minimum of £5 million and we hope this gives you peace of mind.

    As our programme elements often require advance booking (instructors, campsites, bunkhouses, equipment logistics), we have in place cancellation time frames for refunds. Full details can be found in our Booking T&Cs. We therefore recommend that all participants take out cancellation and curtailment insurance in case anything unforeseen arises before or during your programme that means you have to withdraw.

  • AALS

    AALS is part of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and licensing ensures that activity providers follow good safety management practices. Our licence includes trekking, climbing and caving. Details of our licence can be confirmed by calling AALS on 02920 775715 or emailing [email protected] Adventure Expeditions is registered under L14270/R1848.

  • Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge

    The LOtC quality badge demonstrates that we have given thought and provided structure to the programmes that we deliver in order to maximise learning opportunities for participants. It combines the essential elements of provision: learning quality and safety.

  • DofE Approved Activity Provider (AAP)

    Adventure Expeditions is licensed by the DofE as an Approved Activity Provider (AAP). This shows that we have passed the DofE’s licensing requirements and are subject to regular inspections. By completing an expedition or residential with us you can be assured that these will officially count towards your DofE programme.

    Adventure Expeditions has also been selected as by the DofE National Delivery Team to provide expeditions for companies operating the DofE Business award.

  • AAIAC Adventure Mark

    Adventure Mark demonstrates our ability to manage the potential risks of the activities that we operate.

  • AHOEC Gold Standard

    Adventure Expeditions (and directors Cat and Andy) are members of the Association of Heads of Outdoor Education Centres – an organisation that brings together those that operate high quality outdoor education centres to share best practice and maintain standards.

    Adventure Expeditions has been inspected and awarded AHOEC’s Gold Standard for the operations that we run.
