Year Out Group

The Year Out Group was set up in 1998 to promote responsible and well-structured travel and it is an association of leading year out organisations.

The Year Out Group is a not-for-profit organisation and their aim is to provide young people, their parents, teachers and other advisers with accurate and impartial advice about gap years.  To be a member of the Year Out Group, companies have to demonstrate good practice and endorse programmes that provide appropriate and valuable opportunities for the traveller.

Oyster Worldwide is an active member of The Year Out Group and Jon, the company’s senior operations manager, is a director of the association. Our philosophy is strongly linked to that of the The Year Out group and we pride ourselves on the quality of our programmes abroad.
