Gap year provider in Surrey and London

Being a gap year provider in Surrey is perfect for meeting our needs as a global company. We feel just at home in the rolling hills of the North Downs as we do in Kenyan National Parks and the peaks of the Himalayas.

Where can you go?When can you travel?

We work in destinations around the world but AV takes pride in being a Gap Year Provider in Surrey, England. Our base is located close to London and it is from here that we run all our operations. We believe this allows us to provide the best possible service.

Our AV headquarters are based in the picturesque market town of Haslemere, Surrey. We love our site as we have all the benefits of country living, whilst also being just a short journey from London. As a result, we count ourselves as both a Surrey and London gap year company thanks to our close ties to both locations.

What it means to be a Gap Year Provider in Surrey

We believe that being a Gap Year Provider in Surrey allows us to offer a different experience to our clients. We know what it is like to travel from a small British town to a faraway destination and all the challenges and excitement that brings. We pride ourselves on covering all the bases and making sure that we do what we can to make the transition as easy as possible. This includes having a global team of AV Representatives who will be there whenever you need them during your gap year experience.

At Africa & Asia Venture (AV) we believe in a different type of gap year travel.

Where there’s adventure and excitement but also where you find your second home.
Where you don’t just look at the scenery, you become part of the community.
It’s more than travel.
It’s a different way to see the world.



Our AV Representatives

Whilst our main office is based in Surrey near London, for each of our Gap Year locations, we have a locally based AV Representative on hand to help you. They run an orientation course at the start of the project before taking you to your new home. This is an important step in getting settled into the country where you will be staying and provides you with all the information you need for your trip, as well as some language training! From then on, our AV Representatives are never more than a phone call away to support you during your gap year stay. 

We also have a dedicated team permanently in Surrey to help you in the lead up to your trip and with tasks such as organising your travel arrangements. As a Surrey Gap Year Provider, we are able to offer a step-by-step service to make your trip as simple as possible, so you can focus on the things that really matter.
