Calling all gappers – travelling is back!



Gappers – we know the last 6 months have been super weird and your travel plans are probably looking a bit sketchy but we’re swooping in to turn this around.

My name is Milly Whitehead and, with my team at The Leap, I have been organising gap years for the last 20 years and like you can’t bear being told we can’t travel and stay at home.  Desperate for solutions we have been busy trying to find ways around and over these new rules and we’ve found solutions for all types of gap year traveller, and I mean all types – from the hostel hopper independent type to those looking for structure and back-up.

“The message is simple you can travel you just need to know where and how.”


To get the word out quickly we have centralised all this information into a new travel hub called LEAP VIP, so you can quickly access:

  • A list of all the countries which are currently open and gapper safe.
  • Step by step knowledge on the travel admin required to enter the countries.
  • The insurance company who will insure you despite FCO advice – BIG game changer.
  • Access to a 24/7 travel incident support team while you are travelling, so you can get out quickly should borders close again – BIG game changer.
  • Access to endorsed projects and contacts overseas – literally giving you our address book of key fixers in country to look after you.
  • Updates on which programs are running from the top Gap Year companies – new ones opening weekly.
  • Insider industry and updated travel updates as the world opens up.

And so much more – this knowledge hub is growing by the day as more opportunities become available.  It costs £100 for a year’s membership which is redeemable against so many things on the other side – so it’s a win win for everyone.

“So, after a weird 6 months, our message is simple – spread the word, bang the drum gappers – for  you can travel, you just need to be shown how and where. There is no need to stay at home.”


For all School Notices members The Leap VIP will offer a FREE gap year consultation to start the ball rolling – just choose a time in Milly’s diary: https://calendly.com/millywhitehead/gap-year-consultation-
