Many people dream of seeing the world and as a student, you could well make that dream a reality. Throughout the summer, or even during a gap year, you can find the time to explore new parts of the world and tick activities off your bucket list. You’ll see more, do more and learn more, so what are you waiting for? Check out our four tips for students looking to travel, and get planning today!
1. Check what you can afford
We’d all love to jet off around the world, no questions asked, but it’s important to sit down and work out what you can realistically afford. Going travelling need not cost a fortune and there are many options to keep the cost down. From backpacking and staying in hostels to getting a part-time job, there are loads of ways to ensure you can afford your adventure. Planning how much you can spend is the best starting point.
2. Pick the perfect destination
Once you have your budget you can decide where to go. Think of activities you’d like to do along the way; site-seeing, surfing, skiing? These are all options to consider that will help you pick a perfect destination. If you are travelling with friends then this is the best part; sit down with a pint and talk about where you want to go!
3. Create a ‘to-do’ list
There will be loads to organise, so get yourself a to-do list. Some destinations may require certain vaccinations or visas so be sure to get these sorted with plenty of time. You’ll need to consider saving money, what to pack, what you need to book in advance, so a list is a sure fire way to keep you on track.
4. Organise your belongings
Whether you’re off for a couple of weeks, a month or even a whole year, you’ll need to keep your belongings safe.
