For the last 5 years we have run tailored made training days, on some occasions with ans additional day for medical training. Objective will run a training day on Sunday 24th June 2018.
Objective Travel Safety can provide you with the ‘tool kit' you need to survive the road trip across mountain ranges, deserts and other rough terrains. The finish line is in the Russian city of Ulan Ude, and to make sure you get there safely, Objective can create a course that’s tailored to your needs, and your individual journey through to the finishing line.
We know that while the Mongolian rally is one single event, each group of participants will have their own individual journey. With the expedition becoming more and more popular each year, Objective Travel Safety often have many groups undertake the course, splitting the overall cost. The Mongol Rally safety course is a one day course, held in Northamptonshire with the First Aid Day being an optional extra. The topics include:
- Situational awareness
- Country research covering history, religion, social issues and travel risks etc
- Route selections - best things to see
- Insurance, Carnet de Passage, emergency medial evacuation options
- Personal and vehicle security
- Route selection and safety
- Navigation and navigation aids, maps, tracking devices
- Dealing with local authorities
- Basic vehicle maintenance
- Vehicle packing, accommodation and camping

Extra day of medical as an option covering:

"A first rate course to prepare you for the unknown. Charlie and his team gave me the confidence and knowledge to understand what equipment I should be taking, how to prepare my vehicle, how to approach uncertain and even dangerous situations, and more! Their course brings the reality of the adventure home - something that is very difficult to understand, whether you have done something like the Mongol Rally before or not".
Jamie Reynolds comments following our June 2017 Mongol Rally Training Day
"Objective Travel Safety provided us with the best preparation for the Mongol Rally that we could have hoped for. On multiple occasions during our travels we were saved by the knowledge gained on our two day experience and I can honestly say we probably wouldn't have completed the rally without it! Charlie and his team created an enjoyable and hugely thorough course that I would highly recommend to any adventurer!”
