Mongol Rally Expedition Safety Courses
The Mongol Rally is labelled “the greatest motoring adventure on the planet”. There’s no backup, no support and no set route; there is just a start date and an end point. The rest is up to you; how long, how far and how much fun! The car you travel in has to be small (around 1,000cc) and the great thing about the Mongol Rally is the lack of rules and organisational support. This intercontinental car rally is not about having a smooth, uncomplicated ride and you’re definitely in for an extreme adventure, so it’s important to prepare correctly.
The Objective 'Mongol Rally Course' will provide you with the ‘tool kit' you need to survive the road trip across mountain ranges, deserts and other rough terrains. We have trained numerous people travelling from London to Mongolia and have run these training courses for the past 7 years. We are also the trainers of the ‘Long Way Round’ and ‘Long Way Down’ expeditions.
The course is split into two days.
'Planning, Logistics and Safety' Day
Sunday 23rd June 2019 or Tuesday 25th June 2019
A whole load of topics covered, from the planning (routes, visas, carnet de passage, money, maps and communication etc), basic mechanics and vehicle checks, personal and vehicle security, camping and equipment, check point procedure and just about anything else that might present a hiccup during the trip.
'Expedition Medical & Road Traffic Accidents First Aid'
Monday 24th June 2019
This day is focused on providing some very useful but also potentially life-saving medical training. There will be a strong emphasis on road traffic accidents as well as basic life support, staying healthy and field hygiene. Road traffic accidents will pose a significant risk for anyone participating in the Mongol Rally and the Medical day will provide invaluable, life-saving techniques especially when in remote areas where medical response services will be limited.
We recommend that both the Planning, Logistics and Safety Day and the Medical Expedition and First Aid Days are both attended to ensure that you are equipped with all the skills you need to truly appreciate this wonderful adventure.

Testimonials - What people say about our Courses
"Thank you for yesterday's one day course. Everything was super helpful and I can't imagine the mistakes we might have made had we not attended".
Aaron Daniel, June 2018.
"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!”
