Gap Breaks

The basic ethos and underlying principle behind Gap Breaks is essentially

‘Why should young people have all the fun?!'


Gap Breaks is all about providing a service for anyone who doesn't fit the stereotype of someone who wants to take a gap year. Most travel companies specialising in providing ‘round the world' or ‘off the beaten track' gap year travel experiences are geared towards younger travelers.

The aim of Gap Breaks is to re-dress this balance by opening up this type of travel to anyone, whatever their age.

Gap Breaks is extremely flexible in its approach - whatever your age, however long you are planning to travel for and wherever you are planning to go, Gap Breaks can ‘tailor-make' an itinerary to match your individual requirements.

Gap Breaks can help arrange literally anything from just a few weeks away backpacking to a complete round the world trip incorporating some volunteer projects.
