What is an Open Challenge?

What is an Open Challenge? 

An Open Challenge is a great opportunity for an individual or group of friends to take part in a Challenge whilst raising  funds for a Charity of their choice. Most people sign up as an individual and so our Challenges are filled with people of different ages, backgrounds, interests and supporting a mixture of Charities.  But you will all have one common interest…..to achieve your Challenge of a lifetime for a worthy cause.

Next steps:

  • Choose an Open Challenge
  • Choose a Charity of your choice and inform them of your exciting Challenge and that you’d like to raise funds for them.
  • Choose your payment option:

Fundraising :  

Pay a registration fee of £295 (dependant on Challenge) directly to us. Then pledge to raise the sponsorship target which will need to be with your chosen Charity by the date agreed when you sign up with them. The cost of airport taxes are paid by the participant so we will invoice you directly for this. In this option the Charity pay your expedition costs. -         

Payment and Fundraising :

Pay a registration fee of £295 (dependant on Challenge) directly to us. Then pay for the costs of the expedition yourself directly to The Ultimate Travel Company. We will invoice you approx.8 weeks before the trip departs with the final tour costs plus airport taxes. You can then simply choose a charity to support and endeavour to raise as much sponsorship as possible.
