PASSPORT INFORMATION – You are reminded to check with your government well in advance if you need a passport (or renewal) to travel to your destination. You must also check the destination countries you plan to visit to see if you are required to have a Travel Visa to enter. Our customers come from all over the world and we cannot advise on all the possibilities. Please research and plan in advance, as some governments take several months for documents to be issued!


This is not obligatory but we strongly recommend this option. For more details, please visit the website. The main reason people purchase travel insurance is for protection against their need to cancel, such as if a family member becomes ill or an injury is sustained prior to travel. This is also a good option for auto rental insurance, as it is much cheaper than through the car rental company.

TRAVEL SAFE: This is our best insurance option for US and CANADIAN travelers; it covers more people and is more comprehensive for a lower premium. Limited bike rental coverage is also included. Travel Safe Quote Site .

You should have already received our quote at the best rate for you. If not, ask your Pure Adventures consultant to help you with a quote.

GPS & MOBILE PHONES: Technology moves so fast with the travel industry, so for those who are tech savvy, we strongly encourage you to use your own device. Numerous apps now allow you to navigate without using cellular data, so this is certainly useful while on tour. If you use a GPS device or smart phone, you should know how to use it before you come and also, how to use it in airplane mode (cell data off.) Pure Adventures uses Ride With GPS to manage GPX tracks and routes.


Even if you don’t want to use your smart phone as your primary navigation tool, you will want to plan to use your own mobile phone for calls and other smart phone apps/uses. We strongly recommend that you plan ahead with your cell carrier, to avoid very costly roaming charges for data. Note: public phones have almost completely disappeared in most destinations and you will need access to a phone.
