Need some time out from your life? It doesn’t matter if you’ve just finished school, graduated from uni, want to take a break from your degree or your current job just isn’t cutting the mustard – there’s a lot to be said for taking a sabbatical. 

A gap year is an opportunity to work, teach, volunteer or learn in another country. Experience a different way of life and immerse yourself in a new culture, sans the tourist tagline. In the last 12 months, Student Flights gap year bookings with no return date have grown 31 percent, but it doesn’t stop there - there’s also been a 29 percent increase for open-ended adult (i.e. non-student) bookings. For many, a gap year may be less than 6 months and for others, 12 months may not be long enough.

The United Kingdom is a great option for those wanting to base themselves in a big city, but also have the opportunity to travel Europe in their downtime. And, you don’t necessarily have to work in a pub - Real Gap and BritBound can help you find a professional job where you’ll gain experience in one of the most competitive cities in the world. Escaping to the slopes to try life in a ski resort in Canada or teaching English in Europe are just the tip of the iceberg.

With destinations in Asia, Central America, South America and Europe, Student Flights can help you get along your way – whether you need a simple hook-up or the Rolls Royce in relocation services. Not sure where to head? Our top 5 gap year destinations are the UK, Canada, Thailand, New Zealand and France. In fact, teaching English in France is becoming a big trend, with a 26 percent increase in trips to France in the past year (perhaps all the cheese and wine helps).

Want to make a real difference? Do community work in Costa Rica or coach a soccer team in Brazil.  There’s a gap year experience to suit every budget, all you have to do is get started on your escape plan – we can help you with flights, but we can’t break the news to your boss, sorry!
