James Ketchell: Travel tips for your Net+ adventure

get a Net+ card

Over the past year James Ketchell cycled over 18,000 miles, around the world, with his Net+ Prepaid MasterCard®. This was the final adventure of his NETELLER sponsored ‘super triathlon’, which included James single-handedly rowing the Atlantic Ocean and climbing to the summit of Mount Everest.

We caught up with James when he was back in the UK and asked him what tips you should keep in mind for your own Net+ adventure.

Adventure advice from James

Here are a few tips to get your Net+ adventure started…

Taking the first steps and embarking on your own adventure

Often, the hardest part of any adventure is setting off. The uncertainty of what’s going to happen while you’re out there is a concern and most human beings are not programmed to deal with uncertainty well. Other factors may also influence you, such as: other people’s opinions, financial stress, or worries about loved ones. All of these concerns can be managed though. After you have taken the first steps and committed to your adventure, things will get easier and become more fun.

James Ketchell: Down Under with Net+

Take lots of photos and capture your experiences

One thing I often regret is not capturing my adventures on film. Often I think it’s too much effort to stop, get the camera out and press record. When you get back from your adventure you will really regret not making the effort to capture things, so keep that in mind as you travel.

Don’t underestimate the weather

The weather is important and can really affect your trip. If your expedition is going to be human powered (like my world cycle), the wind speed and temperature will be a very important factor.
For example, in North America the prevailing winds generally blow from west to east for most of the year. So, riding from east to west would certainly be a lot harder than west to east. Not knowing basic things like this can really catch you out if you’re trying to follow a timed schedule.

Enjoy what you’re doing

You may have some tough days and things may not go to plan on your trip, but this is what makes adventures fun and exciting! I remember thinking: “I wish this was over” when I was having some tough days on Everest and while I was cycling around the world. However, when it was over and I looked back, I would always find that it’s never quite as bad as I thought it was and sometimes I even wish I was back in those very challenging situations!

Good luck on your own Net+ adventures!

Out for now,

Take a Net+ card

Here are just a few of the ways that a Net+ Prepaid MasterCard helped James out on his travels.

James’ Net+ card allowed him to make and stick to a budget without overspending. The Net+ card is a prepaid card, so he could only use what he put on to the card, and it was a great way for James to manage his daily spend allowance.

When entering a town called Nagaur, James’ bicycle was hit by a passing vehicle and he had to pay for repairs. James didn’t need to worry though, because he had a Net+ Prepaid MasterCard which is accepted at millions of MasterCard point-of-sale locations worldwide.

Net+ can be used for instant ATM cash withdrawals and at any point-of-sale terminal where MasterCard is accepted, meaning that whether you need to buy a new tire for your bike, book a room for the night, or a grab quick sandwich to refuel, Net+ is there for you, no matter what route you take.

NETELLER Sponsorships: Zoe Gillings and James Ketchell

We’re proud to sponsor Britain’s no 1 Olympic Snowboard Cross athlete Zoe Gillings. She famously had a photo finish at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and crashed out at the end, narrowly missing the finals.

Speaking about the high number of crashes that occurred during the Boarder X events at Sochi, the NETELLER sponsored snowboarder said: “Do you have to be fearless? Pretty much. If you haven’t got a lot of courage, you won’t get far. There are often crashes… but you have to deal with it and just concentrate.”

Well said, Zoe! We wish you a lot of luck and admire your courage and determination.

NETELLER also proudly sponsors adventure athlete James Ketchell, and it has been almost a month since he completed his 18,000 mile unsupported world cycle with just a Net+ Prepaid MasterCard® for travel money.

The achievement made James the first person ever to have rowed the Atlantic Ocean, climbed to the summit of Mount Everest and cycled around the world, a feat which has been dubbed a ‘super triathlon’.

James shared some tips for anyone considering their own Net+ adventure. He said that planning and preparation are key. You’ll need to consider how you will fund the trip, what equipment and technology you might need, plan a good route and also keep your fitness levels in mind if your expedition will involve the kind of athletic challenges that James tends to face.

He also said that optimism is important: “You may be having tough days and things will not always go to plan. But that is the reality of going on adventures and in some ways that’s what makes them fun and challenging.”

James took a Net+ card with him on his 18,000 mile world cycle. Available in 8 currencies, the Net+ card has won multiple awards. You can use a Net+ card to withdraw cash from ATMs and make purchases both in person and online everywhere that MasterCard is accepted worldwide.
