You Only Live Once: Gap Adventures delivers new trip style for 18-30-something market

November, 2009 - Gap Adventures, the world leader in small group adventure travel, is proud to introduce YOLO, a new trip style designed to suit the 18 to 30-something market’s appetite for energetic and unforgettable adventure.

Authentic, exciting, affordable and fun, Gap Adventures’ YOLO (You Only Live Once) trips are packed with incredible value and amazing experiences, as well as like-minded travellers looking to live life to its fullest.

The new style of trip focuses on providing the authenticity of small group adventures to 18 to 30-something’s: No big bus caravans, just small, personal groups giving travellers an appreciation of the people they meet and the places they visit.

‘Each and every one of the 80 YOLO adventures is tailor made to offer well-matched travellers an opportunity to experience an exciting range of places, people and cultures in a sustainable and authentic way,’ says Pete Rawley, General Manager of Gap Adventures.

Whether it's a novice traveller’s first trip abroad or an experienced thrill-seeker looking for their next country to conquer, the flexibility of Gap Adventures’ YOLO trip style—which includes accommodation, transportation and tour leader—allows globetrotters the freedom to explore as much or as little as they like based on their time, tastes and budget. From discovering exotic cultures to taking in the local nightlife, see the world from a whole new perspective: You Only Live Once.

Some of the eye-opening new YOLO trips include:

• Marrakech to Paris Adventure: 17 days through Morocco, Spain and France.

• Java Adventure: 9 days experiencing the best Indonesia has to offer, travelling from Jakarta to Sanur.

• Central America Express: 31 days, travelling through five countries, from Mexico to Costa Rica.
