Easter signals the time when many students and academics start serious planning for the Gap years and sabbaticals that are becoming increasingly popular in the UK.

Having first become fashionable amongst students, a wider age range is now taking extended breaks ‘with a purpose’. For example, research suggests that around 50% of over-50s in the UK are planning to travel the world after retirement. However, as people become more determined to achieve ever more ambitious ‘life milestones’, it is also more difficult to know what kind of insurance policy will best suit you.
