A New Chapter For Both Companies

Gapyear.com is delighted to announce the beginning of a new chapter in its history as we join forces with StudentUniverse.

This new partnership, which sees two of the best youth travel brands in the UK come together, means that between us we can now deliver more amazing travel experiences than ever.

Gapyear.com will continue to focus on creating inspirational and useful content that will help you plan your trip of a lifetime, while StudentUniverse will take over the booking process to ensure your trip goes as smoothly and successfully as it possibly can.

By playing to our key strengths we have created a one stop shop for everything you need, from inspiration and planning, through to choosing experiences and booking, and finally to sharing your adventures with the world.

Both companies have a long and illustrious history, having been established almost two decades ago and going from strength to strength every year. Gapyear.com began life on the back of a napkin in a London coffee shop in 1998, and has since grown to become the biggest and most popular gap year site in the world.

StudentUniverse was established in America in 1999 and quickly grew into the premier travel agent for students, offering exclusive discounts and tailored experiences. The company has now expanded beyond the USA and launched its UK arm in 2013.

So, back to business: if you’d like to continue researching and talking about your trip, use the site at your leisure, and if you’re ready to speak to one of the experts at StudentUniverse about getting something booked, just call the number at the top of the page!
