What is included in the team building costs?

Costs for a team building activity will usually include everything needed to run your activity from start to finish.  This includes all of the equipment, friendly and experienced staff, White Rhino travel costs to your chosen venue, pre-event planning, and public liability insurance.

Team building costs don’t include venue hire although this is something we can easily help you with if required.

Does the location I choose affect the cost of the team building activity?

The location of your event will affect the cost of your team building activity slightly but not substantially.  If travel time to your chosen location is quite high, it may be necessary to accommodate the crew overnight so that we can ensure they arrive fresh and raring to go!  We always try to keep travel costs to an absolute minimum with all team building activities, and typically no overnight accommodation is required.

Will the day of the week affect the cost of my team building activity?

The day of the week won’t typically have an impact on the cost of your team building activity unless you choose to hold your event on a Bank Holiday.  If this is the case there may be a slight increase in the price due to the increased staff costs.

Why are some team building activities much more expensive than others?

There are a variety of reasons why some team building activities may be more expensive than others.  The main factor is the number of staff required to run the activity, and also how much equipment is needed for the event.

A team building activity that requires a lot of staff to run it will typically be more expensive.  Likewise, an activity that uses a lot of bulky equipment will also work out more expensive due to the travels costs involved and the amount of people needed to set up and clear down the activity.

Events such as The Italian Job and Solent RIB Adventure are also more expensive due to the vehicle costs involved.

Does the time of day have an impact on the cost of my team building activity?

The time of day you choose to run your event won’t usually make a difference to the price of your team building activity unless it is particularly early or late.

If I have a shorter team building activity, will it cost less?

Whether your activity lasts for 1 hour or 3 hours, the amount of equipment and staff needed for the event is not significantly different (and is often exactly the same).   As a result, shortening the duration of your chosen activity won’t reduce the cost.
