I know we are being plunged into Lockdown again...I mean seriously - at home again? This is madness, sorry - don't get me on the case...But we have safely managed to send gap year leapers away for the last 3 months - safely and responsibly to Costa Rica. With sensible and realistic covid procedures in place these gappers have surfed in the Pacific, contributed to plastic ocean projects and lived...really lived without fear.
And the word is out that we are doing this and the phone does not stop - as there are hundred of gappers out there looking for answers and opportunities to see the world through a different lens. Some want a structured program - some want to independently travel but need the tools to do.
So this is how The Leap, with their steel boots on, is tackling covid and the gap year for 2021.
Currently we are running programs to Costa Rica, Kenya, Cuba and Namibia. Ecuador TBC. Have a read here about how they roll. Different programs suit different people. Costa Rica and Kenya in January are currently full so get your skates on.
- We are not asking for any deposits until one month pre-departure.
- We are financially protected and have reliable and influential ground operators to support our programs. Read more
- Flights,insurance and airport transfers - it's a minefield of new laws and regulations. We will guide you through the new "norm".
For all you backpackers we have built you a very special area called Leap VIP. This is a travel advice resource where you can access hot off the press news - telling you where and how you currently travel to. The purpose of this resource is to give you the confidence and know how to travel.
How are we doing this?
It's all about the insurance. We have badgered many an insurance company to cover you despite the FCO restrictions to travel. And we got there - both company and Leapers can be insured. Whoo hoo...this is ground breaking and we are on of very few travel companies who have nailed this.So, the message is – think big, keep planning and get your name on our team lists
Everyone needs hope...it's as essential as Netflix and a strong cup of tea
