 Older gap year travellers are looking to ensure they get value for money when travelling, claims an expert.Tom Griffiths, founder of Gapyear.com, explained that the growing trend amongst older people to take time out is leading to more ambitious travel plans and the need to ensure budgets stretch that bit further.

“The emphasis now is if you are taking a gap year in a career, the general consensus is to get away and stay away for as long as you can on the money,” he said.

In addition, some destinations are becoming more expensive so travellers may have to take more time and effort to research cheap flights to Australia or other long-haul cities.

Recent research from P&O discovered that 81 per cent of adults are now taking longer and more adventurous holidays with 49 per cent of 55-64 year olds expressing the desire to do more travelling.
