Travelling long term? Gear solutions for students

If you are travelling for a long period of time over the summer holidays, what are you going to do with all your gear?  One solution is to take it all back to your parent’s house while you go off travelling for 2 months…that’s what I did 🙂

The other option is to find a self-storage solution and hire a unit for a couple of months, most places also run student discounts for the summer period.  Student discounts can also be used for storage solutions if you are taking a gap year to travel. According to Secure Move in Newcastle, more students are taking gap years than ever before.

We have seen a 200% increase in student bookings for our storage solution since last year, this is mainly coming from students deciding to take gap year.

Where are Gap Year travellers heading to in 2018?

The top gap year destination is still Thailand, mainly due to the cheap cost of living.  Thailand also offers a huge range of things to do from chilling out on amazing beaches to sports activities for the hardcore!
