Payment Options Explained

Each of our charity challenges can be funded in two different ways. You will need to decide which option is best for you, before you register on your challenge. See table below for further information. You can obtain full costs for each of the challenges by visiting their respective web pages.

Option A – Raising a Minimum Sponsorship

  • Participant pays Registration Fee to Global Adventure Challenges and then raises the minimum sponsorship for their chosen Charity.
  • Participant sends 80% of the minimum sponsorship and pledges for the remaining 20% to their chosen Charity at least 11 weeks prior to the departure date of the Challenge. All outstanding sponsorship MUST be sent to the Charity within six weeks of completing the Challenge.
  • The Charity will be invoiced by Global for the balance of the Challenge 10 weeks prior to departure.

Option B – Self-Funding Option

  • Participant sends Registration Form to Global Adventure Challenges, together with the Registration Fee.
  • 11 weeks prior to departure, an invoice will be sent to the participant for the cost of the Challenge.
  • Although there is no minimum sponsorship required, you can, if you wish raise additional funds for your Charity. Any sponsorship collected MUST be sent to the Charity as agreed with the Charity.

Please contact us if you would like to spread the cost of your registration fee over consecutive months.
