You’d need to chat to the school first, some schools are happy for Challengers to travel with them when they are no longer a student at the school. Otherwise, it’s really important that you have a really good read of our refund policy in our Terms and Conditions before you sign up. If you are at a school in the UK, it may be possible for you to transfer onto one of our trips for individuals – please check our website for details.
If you start to struggle, get in touch earlier rather than later so we can help get you back on track. It’s really important that before signing up you have a really good read of our refund policy in our Terms and Conditions.
To secure your place on the trip we ask you pay the first instalment by the application deadline. If your personal situation means this is not possible, then please apply anyway and give our support team a call on 1300 728 568 (AUS) or 0800 456 134 (NZ) to let us know when you will be making the payment.
You don’t need to be an Olympian to do this however you do need to feel robust and healthy to take on the challenges of trip life; a different climate, maybe some physical trekking, carrying your backpack etc. Some regular fitness activity is encouraged but a lot of this is also about your attitude and willingness to take on the challenge.
Oh no! Put us in touch with a teacher you think might be interested and we can get working on your school to see if a trip would work for them.
From the date of your application, you have a 14-day cooling-off period to change your mind and receive a full refund. If you withdraw from the trip after this 14-day period, your cancellation would be handled in line with our Terms and Conditions. Just as you would with a normal holiday, World Challenge recommends purchasing your own pre-departure cancellation insurance to cover you should you to decide to withdraw prior to departure. Signing up to a trip is an exciting decision but please make sure you are familiar with our terms before agreeing to them.
