Funding Your Travels/Gap Year

Funding your travels/gap year
Work, work and more work! Along with some hard saving! There is no magic answer I am afraid.
Working holiday visas are a great way to experience a culture and get yourself a few quid to fund further travels. They are offered in various countries such as Australia, NZ and Canada, the linkes are below for more information

Australia: https://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/working-holiday/

New Zealand: https://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/work/workingholiday/

Canada: https://www.canadainternational.gc.ca/united_kingdom-royaume_uni/experience_canada_experience/index.aspx

Avoid things like package tours and DIY! It will save you money and you will find that you will be able to travel further with the money you have

    your definitely right ! I've just returned from travelling around Thailand and I now have the bug ????

    the bad news is my job only gives me so much time per year which now has me wanting a career change ????

    Is finding a job harder when you are taking a gap year before uni? Most people have been saying to get a degree before I do any travelling but I want to go now!!

    Me and my best friend are hoping to be able to get the chance to have a gap year before or after uni and travel places we have never been before and we hear are really good. We are early teens and we have Saturday jobs and also we work on school nights to earn as much money as we can to save up for this dream of ours we've had since last year which isn't that long and I think that as long as we work had and dream. We can plan this trip and hopefully have the money to go and experience the best thing you can ❤️✈️

    What tips would you give for finding accommodation whilst on a gap year? This is the main thing I'm worried about, how did you get accommodation?

    I've literally spent a whole day watching probably 80% of all of your videos and i absolutely LOVE them!!! You kind of are an inspiration for me to get my arse out of here and travel.

    ELMOOO!!! AHAHAHAHAHA Well your hair looks fantastic!! I wish you were sitting in the sun I cant imagine how shiny it would be.

    You encourage students to take out hardship grants to go travelling ? No wonder this country is on the bones of its arse.

    You will experience a language barrier in nearly every country this world has to offer. That is the fun part, Start learning some common phrases now, if you have a smart phone you may be able to download an app, which are usually very helpful. But languages are the fun and hard parts of travel :)

  16. Brian Vance

    i want to travel isreal but im nervous only about language barriers can you help me ? how did you handle this ?

  17. PsychoTraveller

    Ah, NZ is on my bucket list for sure. But can't see myself visiting for a few years unfortunately. But please, keep in touch on how it goes, and maybe you can give me some tips! 🙂 Happy Travels x
