Yes people dam hard, do you realise how many gorgeous beaches we had to scout out, adventures we had to do and amazing activities we had to experience to bring you our favourites? Of course not all of them made it onto the site, for good reason,but we still had to see them anyway. Shark diving in the Solomon Islands anyone?

How does Xtreme Gap compare to other companies?

With lots of travel companies out there, we feel you deserve to know the difference:

We are owner run and operated

Lower staff overheads, meaning more inclusions and trips (better value) or passing cost savings onto customer but most important:Our Stake holder interest! Our   customer service has higher priority as we genuinely care about customer experiences. We are 100% responsible for making sure you have a good time

We are a highly travelled team and   overly qualified! Travel and adventure is in our blood.

Owners are dive instructors, Divemaster´s, surfers, kite surfers, and a qualified pilot and have visited most of the destinations and are able to advise properly on what it is like to do the activities

We do not run call centres or expensive offices with loads of staff and lots of overheads. We are a purely online setup.

We have low overheads, and unlike other companies like gap 360 or real gap. So we can pass on cost savings to customers or include more in our trips. Want to know what it is like to run a virtual office? Check it out here! Seen something better value? Put us to the www. Now this may mean you can not actually come in an meet us, but we can be available to have some face time on Skype anytime.

We are devoted to providing detailed information, above and beyond the normal industry standard. See our network of blogs for more.

Comprehensive network of blogs, predeparture packs that provide extensive first-hand knowledge of destinations, trips and country information meaning customers are more prepared for their trips

We are constantly looking to improve your experience

With unique features like our online buddy lists, giving our customers a real-time ability to be up to chat to other people in country after booking, not just providing phone lists that rarely get used

We are equipped with multinational locations of virtual offices: Australia and Europe

We can now cover all time zones, and create a better network of partners over the majority of the competition that just UK-based.

We are proud to run our own trips as well.

Meaning more unique programs, designed to be fun not just influenced by profit margins and commissions offered to us.

We are ethical and avoid voluntourism.

Proving we are not just in it for the money, we are an ethical company and genuinely believe that the exciting travel experiences we offer genuinely offer better benefits and rewards to the customer.Real Gap year companies that sell volunteering are in it for the money. Period.

We are genuine experts in what we do and promote.

Ok, so we have a slightly older management team (Ouch! Sorry team but you dam old!) than most sales advisers in the industry, our average age is 33. However what this means you is that we have travelled to visited and actually lived in most of the destinations. We are connected up the Gazoo, so you are not only in safe capable hands, but we speak from experience and  have a much better insight into the world of travel. We absolutely love it, we have all been bitten well and truly by the travel bug,    and yet at the same time we are young enough to relate to the customers and put together the best value trips.  Grab a copy of our brochure  and you will see first hand some of the ridiculous situations we have been in.

Ok, you get it you want to do this! But you are broke! How can you make this happen?

Hey isn’t everyone, that’s the big problem these days isn’t it, while you are young you have loads of free time and not enough cash, when you’re old you have no time but more dough to play with. Well the simple answer is, you need to plan this well ahead (unless the bank of mum and dad be broken into). You can actually book your spot for only £100, and you can book your spot one year ahead. You then have nine months to save up enough cash to pay for the trip, and a further three months to save your flights and spending money (although you will not need much, as there are so many activities included with our trips). By booking well ahead you also have a timeframe and something to work towards, making your travel plans much more realistic. Some say money is the root of all evil, we say the pathway to an incredible adventure.

So really the only thing that’s is stopping you, is you. Go ahead and commit your travels and do something amazing and it all starts with filling in the booking form.

The Booking Process

  • Fill in a booking form for the programme of your choice.
  • Once we have received your booking form we will start to process it. Please do not book flights until you have heard from us.
  • We will respond to your booking form within 24 hours (if we have not done so, something has gone wrong so kindly check with us)
  • If there is availability on your program we will send you a confirmation invoice and your booking deposit invoice.
  • If your trip departs within 12 weeks, you will need to pay in full. If your trip is more than 12 weeks away (you can book a year ahead) then you just need to pay the booking deposit invoice, this confirms your place on the trip, you then pay the balance 12 weeks before you depart.
  • Once payment is received we will confirm this, and issue you with your pre-departure pack, and set you up on the buddy lists (if applicable to your trip).
  • You are now good to book your flights.
  • Please then send us your flight details, and confirm that you have travel insurance.
  • You are then all set for an amazing adventure.
