PRLog - Nov. 6, 2009 - TUNBRIDGE WELLS, U.K. -- As the winter gloom descends, frost bitten travellers are grudgingly beginning to trade in their flip-flops, sunglasses and backpacks for rain-macs, woolly hats, and umbrellas, with a moment or two to mourn as they pack away the globe. There is, however, no need for explorers to break open the emergency hot chocolate just yet, as leading gap year travel company Real Gap have a sunny solution for the winter blues.
Real Gap Experience
Throwing out a lifeline to adventure starved travellers, Real Gap have launched an exclusive late getaway offer that will enable explorers to travel for less. Running throughout November, the offer gives adventurers the chance to get free travel insurance for the duration of their trip, when they book a programme departing before the end of 2009!*
The perfect way for both gap year travellers and intrepid explorers to escape to a sunnier clime, the deal also presents the opportunity to do something unique and worthwhile overseas. With adventurous travel options and volunteer programmes in over 45 destinations around the world, impulsive travellers can save on trips across Asia, Africa, Latin America and the USA.
Travellers looking to explore the world’s largest continent without the hassle of travel insurance can choose to immerse themselves in Asian culture, trek through stunning scenery and feast their eyes on historic sites with the China Experience. Those with a more adventurous streak can gain a useful internationally recognised qualification and dive in pristine tropical waters when they opt for a Thailand scuba diving course.
It may not cover quite as much ground as South East Asia, but there are still plenty of wonders waiting for last minute travellers in Africa. The South Africa Big 5 programme is not just a chance to get up close to the biggest game on the continent, but also an incredible opportunity to assist in their preservation. Volunteers with a more personal touch in mind can also lend a hand with community projects in Tanzania by providing children, youths and adults with the care, education and skills they need.
Conservation enthusiasts can combine their love of wildlife with the more welcoming climate of the Americas on several late getaway trips across Central and South America. Real Gap’s Wildlife Sanctuary in Florida and Gibbon Conservation project in California, give volunteers a chance to experience a different side of these sought after coastal destinations while helping to care for an array of animals including leopards, tigers, bears, cougars and gibbons. Those in search of something more exotic can head to South America and assist with Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation, or use their English skills to help the local inhabitants with Galapagos Island teaching.
With so many fantastic options, explorers may need a little help with choices to get their booking secured before the end of November! For more details about this amazing limited offer and Real Gap’s trips, travellers can visit http://www.realgap.co.uk/
