Book Your Gap Year Transport

Getting Around on Your Gap Year

Once you know which countries you want to visit on your gap year, and what route you will take to see them, you're going to need to think about how to get around once in said countries. We're largely referring to overland transport here, which includes boats, and basically any form of transport that doesn't involve flying.

Travelling overland, be it using trains, buses or boats, is one of the most enjoyable things about the backpacking experience. You may have heard the saying: "It's the journey, not the destination, that counts" Well, it's true.

We have lots of backpacker transport options for you to choose from, including bus passes, campervan hire and even tall ship tickets. Use the links on the left side to filter your options into either types of transport or countries.
