Who We Are

The Sabbatical Guide was established in 2018 with the purpose of building pragmatic guides to both sabbaticals and travel. It is designed to fill a gap in the market where very little content existed, and be the go-to place on the internet for sabbatical information.

Meet The Team

Our Core Values

There are some core values at the heart of The Sabbatical Guide that drive us forward in our mission to help others plan and take a sabbatical.

Helping Others

The team at The Sabbatical Guide all understand the benefits a sabbatical can bring and are committed to spreading the word about them. Our main purpose is to help others with basic information, inspiration, career and planning guides to take a sabbatical.


When we are producing travel content, we aim to make it first-hand, so that readers are gaining benefit from someone who’s actually been to the destination. Where this is not possible, we try to make this clear.

Well Researched

There are many topics we write on (such as sabbaticals) that require a wide range of information added to the article to articulate our points. We endeavour to put lots of research into these topics and cite our sources, so you can read the studies and original content yourself.


We aim to write pieces that inspire others, not ones being critical.


We aim to make our travel and sabbatical guides practical, actionable and relevant to as many people as possible.
