Planning a Trip or Tour

Many of our Clubs, Societies and Projects visit new and different locations to represent Imperial College London and carry out their activity throughout the year. Tours over the last few years have ranged from discovering new caves in Slovenia to singing a cappella in America and playing rugby in Argentina.

Trips vs Tours

The difference between a trip and tour is defined in the Tours policy and is important if you wish to apply for funding from the IC Trust Tours pot.

As a basic explanation, a trip is a regular or generic part of your club's activity.

Examples include '30 away matches' or '5 weekends in the Mountain Hut'. 

A tour is defined as a period of at least 2 days and 2 nights of residential stay (overnight) outside of London.

Whether you are going on a day trip, a week-long tour, or a month-long expedition, it is your responsibility as the organiser to ensure that the activity runs smoothly and that you and your participants are as safe as possible.
