Reid Briggs staff Stephanie Gardner, Jessica Blackman and Keely Rust represented the company at the recent GAP Year Event organised by Sussex Downs College at their Lewes Campus.
The event enabled students to view volunteering opportunities from local charities such as Chestnut Tree Hospice and Chailey Heritage, as well as local businesses who offer services of interest to students contemplating a gap year. Increasingly students are spending their gap year staying at home working or volunteering to gain valuable experience towards their future career, and for those staying local, our learner driver insurance products from Marmalade were of particular interest, to the young drivers as well as some parents with teenage children, as the Marmalade policy sits alongside the car owners policy and if the learner has an accident, the Marmalade policy takes care of the claim leaving the owners No Claims Discount intact.
Those students planning to jet off abroad were able to speak to specialist companies who can help them with applications to overseas universities, as well as gap year itinerary planners, whether the purpose is travel or eco-tourism or a mix of both. Jessica and Steph were able to explain the need for a travel insurance policy which is designed to cover backpacker trips and activities which standard travel policies exclude or treat as more hazardous.
