Dear Leapers,

We are still here, beavering away and determined as ever to get you overseas despite lock down 2. As before we will not be defeated. But with all things covid related we have to be nibble with our logistics so this is where we are:

In a nutshell we are trading once again and getting gap year travellers out to Costa Rica, Kenya, Ecuador and Cuba so things are looking up. Indeed we have a team out in Costa Rica right now - oblivious to our new lockdown.

How have we done this you might well ask - well, we've pushed hard over the last few months, completing extensive covid risk assessments, are only working with those who will agree to a full refund if we can't go and the biggest news of all is that we have secured you insurance despite the FCO advice. Things are looking good through the Leap lens.

Because we send teams of volunteers, to live in Leap houses, with leap staff and transport we can easily create "leap bubbles" to minimise the risk of covid whilst maintaining fun and constructive social bubbles . For more information about our risk assessments click here -

Another development through the last 6 months has been to find a way to help the independent traveller who we have realised is currently pretty lost with their options. With this in mind we have created LEAP VIP to help navigate the covid rules.

So my key message today is this - you can travel, you just need to to be shown how and where.

The Structured Traveller

Never have we been so busy and waiting lists are building as the Leaper of old has not wasted any time and the independent traveller of old is now jumping on board as the fear of being stranded overseas is enough to bring the out on a cold sweat!

So - leap programs are heading out to Costa Rica, Cuba and Ecuador and Kenya.

The Independent Traveller

We know there are masses of you out there who pre-lockdown would have happily popped your backpack on and headed off to bounce around Asia. Right now this isn't an option BUT you can travel in that footloose fashion just in a different place and with a safety net around you. Enter Leap VIP - the travel hub which will help you do just that.

This resource is aimed at giving you the confidence to travel. It is possible, we promise.
