Welcome to the new Gap Year Season of 2021/2022
The new season has kicked off and teams are full or filling fast for 2022 so we are expanding with Peru and Colombia now open - spreading the leap love to South America, travelling through our Leap Team programs or through Leap VIP - our resource to help the independent gapper.
Reflecting on the last gapper season - wow was it complicated but hugely exciting getting hundreds of gappers away in extreme, travel conditions - becoming official covid travel experts. Our friends in the industry thought we were mad to embark on such a journey but having gapper kids ourselves - doing nothing and sitting back was not a option. But we could not have done this alone - and we were supported and encouraged by positive and gorgeous parents and dynamic gappers - it was a team effort requiring flexibility, trust and kindness. So thank you to everyone for navigating the world with us.
As for the logistics how did we do it? Well, we completed extensive covid risk assessments, only worked with partners who agreed to a full refund, secured covid proof insurance and manged to get the House of Lords to approve our programs as a legal reason to travel through lock down.
So, here we go into the next season, everything is in place - the world is opening up and we advise everyone to start their journey under our umbrella of Leap VIP, so we can guide gappers out and home responsibly, using our global network of contacts to keep you safe.
Call us at any time to talk this through. Travel right now needs honest and collaborative conversation and you need expert advise. 01672 519922
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 them out in a cold sweat.
So - leap programs are heading out to Costa Rica, Kenya and Peru (opening next week).
This is our resource to help those who would have happily popped their 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, you just need a helping hand.
