Trek DEET repellents

Our Trek DEET insect repellent range (formerly known as Repel) protects against a range of biting insects and ticks. DEET has been widely used as a mosquito repellent since the 1950s and is often used by the military today.

If visiting an area at high risk of insect-borne disease, arm yourself with Trek Ultra mosquito repellent. This advanced DEET spray has time-release technology, meaning it protects you all day, from a single application! It protects against contracting serious diseases such as Malaria, Dengue Fever, West Nile Virus and Filariasis. Trek insect repellents are available in a range of strengths with each tailored to suit specific climates and conditions.

 

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Ideal for extreme tropical conditions and family travel, Trek Ultra is a great alternative to our now withdrawn Trek 100 mosquito repellent.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 (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.
