Rincone’s core business of operating adventurous trips carries with it inherent risks for both its group leaders and travellers. Some reasons for these risks are:
- Laxity of laws and regulations in country’s governing transport, accommodation, infrastructure and the travel industry in general, when compared to what we would accept back home
- Potentially volatile political environment of the country in which we operate
- The nature of the itineraries that we run, which are adventurous in nature and often travel to remote locations. With these factors in mind, RDMP has a responsibility to ensure that all reasonable precautions are taken to provide trips that are safe.
The aim of this document is to give our travellers an insight into the safety standards that we endeavour to achieve when on a Rincones trip.
No set of guidelines can anticipate all possible conditions that may arise. We ask our staff to put sound judgement ahead of hard and fast rules and to judge each situation as it arises. Our staff are employed because they demonstrate sound operational judgement, and this extends to the application of safe travel practices.
