Schools finished, results are out and if you’re longing to soak up more life experiences, taking a gap year could be just what you need. There are many benefits, from boosting job prospects, to learning essential new life skills, to simply having an incredible adventure – the possibilities are endless.
However, many young travellers let the stress of planning take over and prevent them from pursuing their dream adventure, now, Gap Years by StudentUniverse has you covered. Packages are not only flexible but include support with a variety of travel necessities, from booking multi-stop flights, to organising accommodation, working holiday visas and more.
Dan Baker, General Manager at StudentUniverse, comments “We jumped at the chance to work with gapyear.com over this exciting and brand-new range of products. As we deal with enquiries from students and youth day in day out, we understand that whilst planning a gap year can be fun, it can also be daunting for first time travellers. We hope that by offering these complete packages, we are taking the stress out of the equation and encouraging travellers to focus on the important things; exploring the world, meeting new people and understanding different cultures.”
Will Jones, Managing Editor at gapyear.com, comments “We live and breathe gap years here, and now we’ve created the ultimate catalogue of trips that will suit every person. We wanted to ensure there was an option for every interest, every personality and every budget. We have taken time to choose all the elements ourselves, but now we’re happy to be able to launch these trips just in time for results day.”
