Q: How do I log in to my account?
You can log in to your account by heading to this link and using the same email address and password combination that you used when you signed up to your trip.
Q: How do I change my travel option?
If you'd like to add or remove an extension trip, or change from 'with flights' to 'without flights' (or vice versa), you can do so by logging in to our registration system and editing your booking.
Flights are under 'Booking Option' and extension trips are under 'Optional Extras'.
Q: I've changed my mind, can I get a refund?
Refunds for either challenge or extension trip registration fees are available only within 72 hours of your initial registration. Outside of this initial 72-hour period, reg. fees are non-refundable, as explained in our Terms & Conditions.
Any and all money you have raised for your charity is non-refundable and will remain with them.
Q: I'm worried about fundraising. Who can I speak to?
If you have concerns about any aspect of your fundraising journey, you always have your charity to support you. Your charity has a team of dedicated and experienced fundraising support, who can help you with any fundraising problem - big or small.
If you're not sure who to go to, contact us and we'll point you in the right direction.
Q: Do I need travel insurance for my trip?
Travel insurance is compulsory for all of our trips and we recommend that participants take this out as soon as possible.
You are free to choose a policy that suits your needs which includes cover for all activities featured as part of your trip and depending on your challenge, the policy you choose should cover you for trekking at altitude and helicopter evacuation.

Q: How can I make a travel insurance claim?
If you need to make an insurance claim, and have purchased travel insurance through us, please see pages 11-13 of the Policy Wording on how to make a claim.
If you have purchased alternative travel insurance, you should be able to find out how to make a claim in your own policy's wording.
