Where can I travel and is there a sense of urgency?

In short, yes there is a sense of urgency.

Welcome to the most sought after page on our website - the one which tells you where you can currently go. Word has got out that we were the only gap year company able to send travellers overseas during the pandemic, therefore we are seeing a huge rise in bookings. We are COVID experts and are excited to help you get on your travels, but don't dilly dally - time really is of the essence as places are filling up fast.

So, roll call please for the following 'can go places'. These countries have passed the Leap covid-risk assessment. You are good to go.

Our booking policy is very simple - if you book and can't go due to any covid reason - you get your money back, minus the £150 deposit, which you can transfer to LEAP VIP.
