We offer a wide array of discounts to the lucky few. For starters, you can receive a 100€ discount if you share our page on facebook, twitter, g+, or other means. They might be the two most lucrative clicks you make today! Just send us the link now or when you sign up.
Or, if you’d like to bring a friend, you’ll get a 100€ discount for each new team member you bring. The more the merrier!
And the best discounts or even freebies will be offered to journalists, traveller bloggers, instagramers, or just all around nice people. Shoot us an email about why you think you should get a discount or a free ride and we’ll be happy to oblige!
It is mandatory for all our customers to purchase a travel insurance that covers medical emergencies (including air ambulance in events of accidents or illness) and trip cancellation due to technical or logistics reasons, 'force majeure', or other unforeseen circumstances.
We insist on sending us the details of the purchased travel insurance no later than 15 days prior to the start of the trip - a scanned copy of the insurance policy together with 24/7 emergency contact number and the details of the emergency contact person.
If no proof of travel insurance is provided to the Company latest the day of departure, we reserve the right to cancel the booking of the Customer with no right to refund.
Everything is better when shared. Except STDs. So if you’d like to bring a non-rider companion, the cost is around 1300€, depending on the number of companions that have registered. They will travel in the support vehicle that will meet you in all the pre-arranged locations, lunches, camping spots, and all the other activities we got planned – diving, balloon flight, snorkelling, boat trip, etc. We’ll be in radio communication with the support vehicle so we can arrange meeting points on the fly, if possible.
We believe in protecting yourself as much as possible without compromising the pleasure of riding. Considering we’ll travell mostly during the day, on dusty tracks and sometimes under quite harsh temperatures, you should bring a well ventilated set of protection gear: helmet, jacket, pants, gloves and boots. Especially an enduro helmet for the added ventilation. The internal hydration pack for water should be your permanent companion - make no compromises here.
Clothing: considering the weather, you’ll be happier with quick-dry microfiber t-shirts, underwear and travel towels.
Health: UV protection suncream factor 30 or higher, depending on your skin sensitivity. Any medication you might need.
Other: A good headlamp is a good addition to any travel endeavour.
Batteries for your devices. Lots of them. Electricity penetration is not Socotra’s strong point, and we can only charge so many devices on the generator and support vehicle’s power outlet.
