5. Date of Passport Expiry - Must be valid for the date of travel.
Any attempts at modifications result in a loss of the permit. If you replace your passport after submitting the above details please retain your old passport and bring it with you on the event as your permit will be booked against it. If you lose your passport before departure please ensure you obtain a copy of the police report to bring with you on the event.
Insurance - Each participant must take out a valid travel insurance policy that adequately covers for all aspects of the trip, including helicopter rescue for mountain areas and medical repatriation that can be authorised on the advice of the Action Challenge tour leader. Action Challenge works regularly with Campbell Irvine as a specialist travel insurance provider. All questions regarding the cover, costs and purchase of the insurance can be made directly with Campbell Irvine. You can call them direct on +44 (0)207 938 1734, email firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online.
You will need to quote “Action Challenge” and the name of your event. Please inform your charity once you have purchased the insurance and fax/email through a copy of the cover note to them with your insurance provider, policy number and 24hr insurance response emergency number. Travel insurance can be obtained elsewhere, but a copy of the policy must be given to the charity one month prior to departure. Please be aware that most high-street policies will not provide sufficient cover for a challenge event and we strongly recommend showing a copy of the itinerary to your insurer before you purchase your policy to ensure you are sufficiently covered.
Vaccinations – No specific vaccinations are required for Peru, however, please make sure you are up to date on all necessary boosters and vaccinations by speaking to your local GP / travel clinic. Advised vaccinations include Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Typhoid, Diptheria and Rabies.
