For many, a gap year offers the ultimate freedom, whether a student taking some time out after university, or a long deserved trip after retirement. Everyone has a different reason for traveling, but the one thing that they all have in common is the desire to see everything the world has to offer.

Our friends at easyBus, a low cost airport transfer service for the UK and France, have put together a great infographic of some interesting gap year stats.

There are a number of popular destinations that have long been a staple part of any gap year travel plan; with their popularity based on anything from volunteering opportunities, rich historical sites or simply just amazing weather!

The beauty of traveling is you are free to go where you want. Some people plan every detail of their trips, factoring in multiple destinations, transport and accommodation. While others prefer to be spontaneous and too see where they end up. No matter what kind of traveler you are, a gap year offers something incredible for everyone.

Once any would-be traveler has their heart set on the location, it’s time to decide who is going to accompany you on this trip of a life time. The vast majority of people unsurprisingly travel with friends, family or partners.

However, more people than ever are opting to travel alone, giving them complete freedom and control over their trip.

Traveling alone is not for everyone, but if you are considering it then you should ensure you keep in contact with someone back home while you are traveling, to give them regular updates on where you are in the world and what you are doing.
