Mosquito & Insect Repellents

We offer a range of DEET and DEET-free repellents – essential kit for anyone visiting insect-infested areas. DEET remains the most effective and broad-spectrum repellent and we have a variety of strengths suitable for all types of travel.

Some travellers prefer not to use DEET, so we also offer a range of DEET-free repellents that are perfect for tropical travel or as a general purpose repellent. Using the latest Saltidin® technology, Trek Sensitive and Trek Midge are suitable for pregnant women, children age 2+, and those with sensitive skin. 

If you like the products you put on your skin to be natural, why don't you try our Trek Natural mosquito repellent. It is suitable for children from 6 months+ and protects for up to 10 hours from one application.

Trek Ultra

Trek Ultra

As Seen in Active Traveller Magazine, read the 5 star review here. 

Ideal for extreme tropical conditions and family travel, Trek Ultra is a great alternative to our now withdrawn Trek 100 mosquito repellent. Read more about the reasons behind the removal of Trek 100 here. To make sure we still offer the best repellents on the market, our scientists have developed the technically advanced mosquito repellent Trek Ultra, to give you exactly the same long lasting protection as Trek 100 but with a third of the DEET!

How does Trek Ultra work? It contains micro-encapsulated DEET which is released slowly over the period of wear, which reduces the amount that needs to be applied to the skin. One application continues to be effective for up to 12 hours and it can be used on children from age 2+. Due to the micro-encapsulation technology this mosquito repellent is also more durable in wear and is sweat & splash resistant. 

Trek 50

Trek 50 (formerly Repel 55) is the insect repellent of choice for long-haul travellers, adventurers and explorers. It is ideal for travel in areas of tropical and sub-tropical Central and South America, sub-Saharan Africa, India and Pakistan and South-East Asia.
