Safety

Our Tour Safety officers are PETER KILLICK and CARLOS SALAZAR who have completed first aid courses in the UK and United States and should be advised of any medical problems during our tours also please advise him at tour commencement of any medical condition you have that he should be made aware.

All bikers (which are usually limited to 9 number per trip) must be experienced riders with a full licence & personal insurance. We can recommend a UK insurer for you if required. You will need to bring your own protective clothing although we do have a store of helmets, gloves etc it is impossible for us to cater for all sizes!

Vaccinations

You should consult your doctor for general health risks while in Peru.
There are no vaccinations that are required by law to enter Peru but we recommended you ensure immunity against TB, polio, typhoid, infectious hepatitis, yellow fever and tetanus.
Malaria tablets can be obtained in Peru quite easily and please be advised we will be riding at altitudes as high as 5,000 metres above sea level for asthma or breathing problem sufferers.

Check with your doctor at least six weeks prior to travelling because some shots take time to become effective and may need to be given over a period of time. Ask them what they recommend and the possible side effects of each vaccination. For further details regarding vaccinations for Peru, visit the U.S. Centre for Disease Control's website at http://www.cdc.gov/travel/tropsam.htm.

Insurance
It is highly recommended that you take out travel insurance before you leave home. However, hospitals and clinics often ask for cash payment up front. Make sure that you keep all receipts so that you can be reimbursed once you return home. Also, make sure your insurance covers motorcycling on South American roads and if possible includes medical evacuation. They usually aren't, but you can buy supplemental insurance to cover you.
