Travel with a purpose

Taking a trip is so much more than flights, hotels and searching Yelp for a good local restaurant. Having the opportunity to truly experience and understand a different culture can be a life changing event. Pair your passions for learning, helping and self-improvement with a study, work or volunteer abroad journey.

Work Abroad

There's no better way to get to the heart of a place than by living and working there - live like a local! Plus, not everyone can afford to spend a year skipping round the world without a care *sigh*, so working abroad is a great way to fund your trip as you go!

Travel Insurance

In the spirit of honesty between travelers, travel insurance is not the most exciting thing in the world. However, it may be the most important thing that you take on your travels. Yes, even more important than a lightweight backpack. Buying insurance will help give you peace of mind, giving you coverage should the unexpected happen before you depart as well as helping to keep you safe while you're away.
