Why You Need An Expert Travel Partner

When you want to travel to a remote destination, whether it is in a group or by yourself, it is wise to have an expert travel partner that understands humanitarian travel. Good news! You’ve found them.

Who better than the world’s first travel organization?

On 8th October 1947, we chartered our first plane. The airplane was a Dakota, which departed from Amsterdam to Entebbe to help those who were in need.  It changed the way of travel for humanitarian purposes for good as this had never been done before. In that time, ships were the most popular and cheapest means of transport. Since then, we’ve organized countless flights to the easy-to-reach and also the most different destinations all over the world. Here’s more information about our history.

Duty of Care

The duty of care is a legal obligation that an organization has to keep its employees safe and healthy, not only at home but when they work in another country. When something goes wrong, aid and development organizations are held responsible. Raptim Care makes it easier for you to stay connected with your people in the field or on a mission, and to monitor them at any time in any given context. Our work doesn’t end until our travelers, your employees, are safe at home.
