There are almost endless possibilities for adventure travellers to enjoyÃ‚Â their holidays, and seemingly an infinite amount of adventure travelÃ‚Â operators. So how do you choose which one to book with?Ã‚Â Membership of government recognised travel bodies, which requireÃ‚Â adherence to audited standards, is a great place to start. ATOAIÃ‚Â monitors members annually, ensuring that standards are maintained.
Trips and activities offered by ATOAI members may appear, on the faceÃ‚Â of it, to be more expensive than trips from other operators, but you needÃ‚Â to ask yourself these 5 important questions.
What safety standards does this operator have?
What experience do they have?
What sort of guide, accommodation and food will I get?
What if something goes wrong?
Will you get what you paid for?
Is it really worth risking your health, safety and the enjoyment of yourÃ‚Â long anticipated trip, for the sake of what may be only a few hundred rupees aÃ‚Â day?
If you are considering a trip which is offered by an operator who is notÃ‚Â part of ATOAI, perhaps you should ask yourself why they arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t aÃ‚Â member. And then book with an ATOAI member Ã¢â‚¬â€œ youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s moneyÃ‚Â well spent.
