There are hundreds of travel companies on the internet these days. When you work hard all year for 2 - 4 weeks holiday leave it is very important that you choose the right adventure company. The following are some of the reasons why you should choose Cutting Edge Adventures as your operator on your next adventure holiday.
At CEA we support a variety of Charity's and Not For Profit Organisations. These Charity's and Organisations provide many less fortunate people and communities with medical, education, food, building, road and transport infrastructure.
Unlike many adventure companies and tour guides in Australia and around the world, Cutting Edge Advenutres is fully insured with up to $10 million public liability cover. If you are injured on a trip, travel insurance companies will not honour policies if you travel with an uninsured, unlicensed operator. This is a very important factor to consider when choosing your tour operator. Do not risk your health and life just to save a few hundred dollars.
Cutting Edge Adventures only offer trips that are run professionally by either our own local team or by a local operator that works with Cutting Edge Adventures to our own and industry standards. In Australia we are the operator. Our guides are experienced and reliable who follow a strict set of environmental, social, cultural and labour policies. For operations we do not run ourselves directly, we ensure our local operator abides by these same set of standards.
