Hi, Sta Travel is your best option, plus your under 26 and will get better deals, as you come under the youth prices. they are really good and reliable, my sister travelled with them years ago, and recommeneded them to everyone, I'm planning a trip early 2014 myself you should check out there site. www.statravel.co.uk.

p.s www.Frontier.ac.uk are also a good choice you can search volunteering job and paid jobs, and they often set you up with home stays or other accomadation. or try www.hostelworld.com, you can pre book your hostels before you arrive, and there are some pretty good deals there.

I swear by hostelworld I have used it so many times to book hostels... much better to book it yourself and cut out the middle man so to speak and not pay any agents fees.

For flights I use www.skyscanner.net and it gives you the options to look at month view so you are able to see when is the cheaper time of the month to travel.

If you stay in hostels you are guaranteed to meet like minded travellers - I am doing a Working Holiday to Australia starting in Sydney on 27th Feb

The accommodation section here on travellerspoint - *points up to the link just under the blue header* - incorporates all of the hostels you can find on hostelworld - and adds all of the hostels you can find on hostelbookers, too. Same prices, too, so consider giving that a try for booking your next hostel. :)
