The Importance of Sabbatical and Career Breaks

Thinking about taking a break from work?  You're not alone.  Millions of UK workers do so every year. Many companies (around 20%*) now offer staff sabbatical leave, with the government and finance sectors leading the way.

Most of us want to escape the rat race for a while, to step off the merry go round and just stop!  To have time to clear our minds, reflect, relax, recoup, re-charge our batteries and quite possibly consider a life/career change.  After all, you only live once and who knows what's around the corner.

If you are lucky enough to be able to do so, you have probably been planning it for a while, so you should be aware that our Longstay travel insurance is an absolute must for extended trips abroad. Visit our homepage or contact us for more information.

If you're still undecided, there are many reasons for taking a break from work, you may be wanting to:

The world is your oyster.  Whatever you do, wherever you go, don't forget that whilst you're on your sabbatical, travel insurance is a must.
