Real Gap Experience Gap 360 logo

Exciting news for all travellers - Real Gap Experience has joined forces with Gap 360, the UK’s leading gap year youth travel specialist! 

As two of the biggest and most exciting adventure travel brands in the UK, our combined expertise, passion and experience is second to none. We still offer the same epic destinations, and the same awesome service, but we’re able to bring you a wider range of trips, totally tailored to you, and even more bucket-list experiences.

About Gap 360 ✈️

At Gap 360, we're not just about travel; we're about creating memories that last a lifetime, from Australia’s sun-kissed east coast, and Costa Rica’s cloud forest, to Nepal’s majestic peaks, we take you to the most incredible places on the planet. We offer group adventure tours, working holidays, volunteer programmes, and round the world trips for 18 to 30s. 

Why choose us?

  • Massive choice of trips - Few other youth travel companies come close to us for choice (200 trips in over 50 countries!)

  • Group tours - We think shared adventures are the best adventures, so all our trips are for groups. Whether you’re travelling solo, in a couple, or with mates, you’re sure to come back with new friendships that’ll last a lifetime. 

  • Low prices, price guarantees, and easy payment plans - We keep our prices as low as possible (we doubt you'll be able to find the same trip cheaper but if you do, we'll match it!) and for most of our programmes we only ask for a £199 deposit, with payment plans available.

  • Knowledgeable personal travel advisors - You’ll be given your own personal travel advisor, so you won’t have to switch from person to person. Our team are all passionate travellers, and can give you first-hand advice on our destinations. 

  • Help with flights and insurance - Our flights team can get you great deals on flights for our tours, and our insurance partners at World Nomads offer comprehensive cover for all our trips. 

  • 24/7 emergency line - In the unlikely event you have any problems while you’re away, we offer an emergency helpline manned by our staff 24/7.

  • ABTOT members - We’re members of ABTOT (The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust), which means your money is protected when you travel with us.
