Yes, I recommend this program

I stepped abroad to new zealand for 6 months

Step abroad is a great program for people who have never gotten a working holiday Visa and have never moved to another country as part of a gap year. They were very helpful by sending a very detailed document about living in Auckland, and they also video chat with you to explain everything. They give you information on housing, getting a phone, banks, average living costs, etc. They also set you up for 2 nights in a really great hostel that I have been living in long term. The agency that I have found work through was great too because they go out and find jobs for you. My only complaint is that they say they provide assistance with finding a place to live but they really just give you a couple websites and that's it, I ended up doing it all myself which I haven't done before.

If you have traveled before or done a working holiday Visa I would not recommend spending the money on the program as I have traveled before and I probably would have not done the program if Iknew exactly what it would be.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
To be honest since I have experience travelling I wouldnt do the program because I didnt need it, it's more for complete beginners
