Lonely Planet have teamed up with STA Travel and The Mail on Sunday to bring you the opportunity to talk to the experts and find out all about taking a gap year. The event is aimed at students planning to take a gap year after A levels and their parents. 

Lonely Planet’s Tom Hall will be answering your questions on a panel shared with STA Travel, Frank and Daniel Barrett from The Mail on Sunday and i-to-i. After the Q&A session, everyone will have the opportunity to talk to Tom and other LLonely Planet staff about their specific trip and requirements.
