Gap Year Travel

There are so many things you can do on your gap year, but here at Projects Abroad we think travelling is one of the most exciting and worthwhile options. We’re also experts with a proven track record, helping volunteers plan their gap years, whether they’re career breakers or have just finished school.

Gap year travel combinations

If you’re going to the expense and effort of travelling across the world, you may as well explore more than one country while you’re at it! Here are some suggested Projects Abroad combinations:

Arranging your travel

Start off your gap year hassle-free and allow us to book your flights for you. We use safe and reliable scheduled airlines, arrange your transfers automatically, and if possible, place you on a flight with another volunteer.

The cost of the project also covers the transport between your accommodation and volunteer placement. In some of our destinations such as Southeast Asia, travel is also quite cost-effective, so you have the opportunity to venture further afield and explore after your project has finished.

For over 20 years Projects Abroad have been experts in volunteering abroad, work experience and gap year placements.

Founded in 1992, Projects Abroad has now sent nearly 100,000 volunteers from all walks of life to volunteer projects in the developing world.
