The first thing every traveller should do is to make a travel plan and leave it with someone who can react.
ICE-SAR offers you to send the information needed to start search or rescue, in case something happens while you're on you trip.
We also offer trip monitoring which you can choose later here in the process.
By requesting trip monitoring you are giving 112 and Search & Rescue the time you estimate to arrive from you tour.
If you haven't checked in before that time rescue teams will start search operation.
You will get a text message/e-mail to activate the service. After activating you will receive another text message/e-mail which you can use to deactivate the monitoring service when you've arrived safely from your trip.
