Most short term mission trips are required to comply with The Package Travel Regulations (1992). However, the definition of a package is quite broad and so church weekends and camps might also be included. As compliance with these regulations is compulsory and legally binding, it is vital that you understand their implications.
To enable organisers comply with these regulations Global Connections has been working with Jelf who have arranged
- Financial Failure Insurance.
- Tour Operators Liability Insurances (with special rates for Global Connections members).

There is also guidance on what must be included in promotional materials and contracts that the regulations specify.
