The GeoEx Safety Net

Support for Our Guests

GeoEx is your partner in adventure. As a pioneer of travel to remote and challenging destinations since 1982, we lead the industry in providing safe, secure, and well-supported travel experiences, and in successfully navigating changes as they arise.

Your safety and well-being have always been a top priority for us at GeoEx. Caring for our guests, staff, and for the colleagues and local communities that we work with around the globe is at the core of what we do. 

  • Built in backup: Every GeoEx trip comes with 24/7 access to emergency assistance services, emergency medical evacuation and medical advisory services, and secondary medical expense coverage. We offer the best medical evacuation and rescue services in the industry for COVID and non-COVID medical illnesses and injuries. See our insurance page for details.
  • Friends in the field: Our trip leaders and local guides are legendary. Not only do they open doors to off-limits experiences and make meaningful introductions, they are trained to handle all sorts of unexpected situations, should anything come up while you are traveling.
  • Contingency plans: Working with our team of physicians at Redpoint, we have procedures in place to support any guest who falls ill during their trip.

Safety Protocols

Together with our medical advisor, Redpoint Travel Protection, and their team of physicians and experts in international medicine, we continue to follow and maintain safety protocols based on best practices set by the CDC and WHO.

  • Traveler health: COVID-19 test(s) and / or proof of vaccination may continue to be required for travel on private and group trips, depending on your destination. GeoEx will provide destination regulations in advance of departure; however, it is the traveler’s responsibility to ensure all personal entry requirements are met.
  • Smaller groups: Unlike many other travel companies, GeoEx has always kept our group sizes to a minimum. You can expect 6–12 travelers maximum on most of our trips. 
  • Larger vehicles: GeoEx has always endeavored to provide a window seat for each passenger, giving travelers more breathing room, with open windows to increase ventilation whenever possible.
