Win a Gap Year

Enter our competition to win a Gap Year Experience

We spend all of our working days (and most of our nights too) living and breathing gap years. We’ve doled out gap year advice, shared your gap year stories, we’ve even set you up with gap year buddies. But for the very first time (drum roll please) we’re giving away a complete Gap Year Experience.

Your gap year is yours to do whatever you want with it. You may be taking a whole year out and your budget (or lack thereof) may dictate the need to get a job. Or you may already be on the rungs of an illustrious career ladder and are looking to cram a year’s worth of life changing experiences into one month. That’s why we are letting you choose which Gap Year Experience you take if you win our competition.

The lucky winner can choose between 2 options. You may want to take a 12 month working holiday in Australia which includes flights, transfers, 12 months employment assistance, a Sydney beach tour and much more – a total prize value of £1,099. Whether you’re looking to work in a big city or prefer a job working on a farm, the Working Holiday Club can assist you every step of the way. Alternatively you could spend 12 months on Bondi Beach – like we said, it’s your gap year so what you do with it is up to you!

For those with a little less time we have the option of a 28 day adventure package in Thailand. The winner can perfect their Pad Thai and party under full moons with the flights, transfers, accommodation, breakfast and 28 days of touring all on us. This package is the ultimate ‘Short Gap’ option and is worth £1,539.

If you’re interested in a career in journalism or social media then this is also an excellent opportunity to flex your writing and blogging skills as the winner will be reporting for us live on the road. You’ll have our full permission and support to brag to your friends, family and audience about what an A-MAZE-ING time you’re having! And trust us, it’s going to be totes amazeballs!

How to win

We thought about making you jump through hoops of fire while eating live insects somewhere in the desert, but in the end we settled for a simple Facebook ‘like’. Simply hop on over to our Facebook page, hit like and enter your name and email in this form. That’s all. The contest closes on the 7th September so do it now! Oh, and make sure you share it with your friends and family for more chances to win!
