Planning a Gap Year?

Start planning your round the world trip, gap year or cheap holiday

Planning a gap year or round the world trip can be a time-consuming experience, but once you get the basics like planning your round the world route sorted, and booked your first night accommodation, the main pressure is off.

When you have your flights booked, it's time to organise your travel visas, vaccinations or gap year work or volunteering projects.

When you're booking your round the world flights remember to include as many surface sectors as possible. You don't want to fly everywhere! Popular overland trips for backpackers on gap years include the Trans Siberian rail journey, Euro railing, adventure trips and overland tours.
