In the recent past, more and more millennials are choosing to take a break after wrapping up their academic career and setting out to experience a gap year abroad. Becoming an extremely popular affair in the Western countries, students and graduates from the USA, Canada, the UK, Spain and other European countries are travelling to Asia, Africa, and Latin America, to make the most of their career break.
While some people take gap years just to explore a different country and find out one's hidden potentials, others have the zeal to contribute towards a social cause and dream of making a difference. And there are others who spend time learning a new language and polishing skills that would help them in their career ahead.
You can surely plan your journey by yourself, choosing where to go, how long to stay, and what to do in order to make the experience worth cherishing. But that, undoubtedly, will involve a lot of hassle. You'll have to arrange for your accommodation at the destination, find out a proper place to work or intern, figure out where to eat and how to commute daily, so on and so forth.
Rather, what you can do is, just browse through the catalog of programs and tours that we have designed for the gap year travelers and choose the one that aligns with your choices and preferences.
In case you are still not convinced, let's take a quick look at the advantages of booking your gap year trip with Go Discover Abroad.

3. Chance To Broaden Your Social Circle
The best part is that you'll get to make friends out of strangers, and who knows, you might just find your favorite travel mate during your journey with us. You may set out for a solo trip with GDA, but you'll never be alone - that's for sure! You'll be traveling with a group of like-minded, adventurous and enthusiastic travelers from other parts of the world. It'll be a great way to collaborate with them, work together, share ideas and experiences. There will be immense scope for peer learning, and as they say, it's always more fun with a bigger gang!
4. 24/7 In-Country Support For Safety
When you travel alone, you will have to be alert and safe while your parents, back at home, will always keep worrying about you. But that won't be the case if you plan your gap year trip with GDA. We ensure the safety of all and we have our team members at each of the destinations so that we can provide you 24/7 in-country support. From airport pickup, transfer to the accommodation, arranging guided tours, taking you for souvenir shopping - we'll be there to assist you.
5. Explore The Unexplored
When you'll plan everything by yourself, you'll only get to explore those places where someone has been before, or you read about it online. But with us, you'll get to explore the offbeat trails and maybe, together, we can find a new hide-out somewhere! Also, we'll let you spend ample time with the locals of the destination so that you can venture out with them at times.
6. Stick To Your Budget
When you plan your journey all by yourself, you will end up spending a lot more than what you'll pay for a planned trip with us. Our affordable tours include everything from your airport pickup, accommodation, food, and explorations. All you have to do is to get your Flight Tickets, Visa and Travel Insurance separately. Rest, we'll take care of all and make sure that you can stick to your budget.
7. Get Amazing Group Discounts
