Why choose us?

 

We're the Gap Year Experts

We've been the ultimate hub of advice on gap years for over 15 years now - we know a think or two about long term backpacking! Every single member of the team has been backpacking at some point, somewhere and we're all super passionate about travelling. Add these two factors together and there's no other business on the planet that understands your gap year needs as well as we do.

 

We'll Look After You

You can count on our gap year travel experts to get you to your destination and, equally importantly, to get you home again. We are made up of real people, not just some random booking engine on a website. We genuinely care about you, and about delivering you the most amazing travel experiences possible and making your adventure the unforgettable experience it should be.

 

We Can Get You Anywhere

Go on, challenge us. Being part of the Flight Centre network - one of the world's largest and most respected travel companies - gives us access to flights and experiences in the most far flung of places. We've already sent 15 gappers to Turkmenistan. And wherever you choose to go, you can do so safe in the knowledge you are fully protected as we're ATOL protected and a member of ABTA.

 

We're a Travel Social Network

We're a community of real travellers and together form the most impartial gap year company in existence. Between us we have hundreds - probably thousands - of years experience backpacking, and know pretty much everything there is to know. You won't find a travel company anywhere in the world with anything close to our level of expertise. Oh, we're also one of the best places online to find travel buddies, too!
