The gap year news section is your up-to-date news on gap years, backpacking and travelling. Basically, it's anything travel related that we think is fun to read! Whatever happens in the world, we've got it covered.
Sometimes the gap year news is useful information, like visa updates or FCO travel advice, and sometimes the gap year news is not so useful, like celebrity gossip or a sexy story. However, the news is always written with you in mind, so make sure you keen on coming back to see the latest gap year news and travel information.
As we write the gap year news for you, we like you to get involved too. You can comment on each story and click-through to relevant sections of the site, so start reading and get stuck in!
