What can we offer?

All of our highly experienced travel consultants have lived work and travelled abroad. Many have been dive instructors and can tell you firsthand how to get the best out of travelling. This makes is very different as a travel organisation. We have a wealth of experience that we can pass on to you. but you have to take the first step and contact us with what you are planning and we can help fill in the blanks.

Obviously, everyone is different and the below is a generalisation, it gives you an insight into what we can offer but the best thing to do is contact us with your individual circumstances.

Best suited for:

17  – 19

If you fall into the 17 to 18-year-old category group you are probably a first-time traveller. It’s going to be an exciting prospect but also a little bit scary. We have some fantastic group travel programs, packed with adventure mostly for solo travellers. This means you will have a safe fun experience and meet loads of people was sharing amazing new experiences and we can promise you will get the travel bug. Contact us to say hello (we won’t bite) and we can talk you through some of your options.

20 – 25

If you fall into the 20 to 25-year-old category, you fit with the majority of our travellers. It might be that you are travelling in between semesters at university, or you work full time and you’re having a short holiday. Either way, we have some great options for you. We have guided group adventures, amazing for meeting people, as well as more adventurous backpacking style trips. We can put together larger round the world adventures, or shorter breaks depending on how much time you have to play with. Get in touch with us to tell us about your individual circumstances and we can give you some great travel ideas.

Career Breakers (also under 30)

We tend to define career breakers as people in between jobs, or quitting their jobs to go travel. Nothing screams adventure like sticking it to the man, saving up some travel money and going out and having real adventures. There are different ways you can experience taking a career break abroad. Some people like to actually continue to keep the cash rolling in but just change where they work. Working in Australia for example. Others like to get new qualifications to actually change their lives. Becoming dive masters or dive instructors, surf instructors of fitness trainers we have loads of different options if you want to make a life of it abroad. Again talk to us about your individual circumstances and we will see what is best fitting for you.

30 Plus

A common misconception about Xtreme Gap Year is that we are a company just for people of gap year age. So for the record, you don’t have to be in your early 20s or late teens to take a gap year. We have travellers in their 50s, 40s, 30s as well. It might be that we recommend different trip options for you, but we certainly have amazing adventures if you are in the 30+ age category. Popular options tend to be more longer term experiences like professional dive qualifications, or overland truck Tours in Africa but everyone is different and we can make sure we match you up to something amazing. Feel free to get in touch with us with your own individual circumstances and we can give you some great first-hand advice.
