Tips for Booking Gap Year Flights

How to Save Money on Gap Year Flights

Don’t let expensive airfare keep you from the gap year of your dreams. There are plenty of ways to save money on gap year travel. And we would know—StudentUniverse works with airlines all over the world to provide the cheapest student flights.

Student Travel Flights

There used to be an old rule that a round trip flight costs as much as a one way flight to the same place, meaning round trip tickets were cheaper overall. That used to be true, but as long-term travel becomes more accessible to students and young people, the one-way market grows stronger and stronger. Keep your gap year travel open-ended by booking one way flights cheap with StudentUniverse.

Another way to save money on your gap year flights is to research your airlines! Whilst budget airlines are a fan-favorite of broke students, they can be a bit shady. If you’re carrying anything more than a backpack, you could suddenly find your “dirt-cheap” airfare doubling, even tripling, under various fees and penalties. We’re not saying you shouldn’t consider a that £28 flight to Morocco, but you need to compare airlines, not just airfares, to get the most from your gap year travel.
