Gap Year Travel Advice

Having been organising gap years and adventure travel expeditions for over 20 years, we've learnt a thing or two along the way. Whether you're looking at a backpacking trip, volunteering abroad, or joining an off-the-beaten track expedition, feel free to give our gap year advisors a call with any questions.

If you're planning your gap year and looking for some advice on gap year travel, browse around our resources section for frequently asked questions, advice about choosing the right gap year program, visas, safety and security.

Doing your research is a vital part of your gap year - and this not only applies to those taking a gap year, but parents of those taking a gap year too. That's why we've developed a resources area specifically built around answering the questions and concerns.
