The WTC Team supported me from day one and whenever I needed help I knew I could just ask one of the many friendly people at WTC. They always tried to make my experience abroad the best possible and helped me plan and book exactly the travels I wanted. If you want to work and live abroad, WTC is definitely a good choice if you're looking for support in finding jobs, a place to live and booking your travels.

I wanted to travel with an agency, because it was my first big overseas travel. And for my first travel experience it was nice to have somebody "in your back", but you definitely do not necessarily need it. I found a job through work and travel company a
very quickly, which was nice and comfortable, but a lot of hostels (especially in syndey) offer you something like a job desk or travel desk. Moreover it was nice to have like an australian adress, which you can quote whenever its required. And you can store your luggage as long as you like. But everytime i was in a work and travel office, and i was looking for travel advise, i always felt like they desperately wanted to sell some tour to me (doesnt matter if it was the best or cheapest option for me). I paid for the service of the work and travel company in advance and i felt like they still want to get more profit out of me (while i just wanted an honest advice about my opportunitys, even if thats means i am gonna buy a cheaper tour or whatever). So this was kinda disappointing. All in all i had a great time in australia with work and travel company and i am happy i chose them for my first travel experience, but the next time im gonna travel all on my own (good planning is the point)!

How can this program be improved?
Stop to push programs (like the farm training program) on people. Its not that hard tp get a farm job, really, people dont need this overprized training stuff. And the surf camp is amazing, i went there too and i liked it too, but every time i was in the syndey office somebody was like "have you been to the surf camp?" - "surfcamp is amazing, have you been there?" etc., that was so annoying, im sorry

I had a great time in Australia and the staff of Work & Travel Company were also a reason why. They're really nice and helpful. Hollie and Luba at the travel desk were a great help when I was looking for a Job and Mat at the travel desk had some special offers and helped to plan my trip or I just had a talk with him to get some ideas myself. You can also go to the office if you have some questions, need a computer/printer or just fast Wi-Fi. That's really good especially in the first week. Also it's always a place were you meet other nice backpackers and have a little chat. Overall it was a really great experience and I would recommend this program!

We are three guys from Germany and we had a beautiful time here in Melbourne. Josh and Laura from the work and travel company supported us not just while searching jobs and appartements. They also supported us while planing a travel route and with all other questions that we had. I can just recommend the work and travel company. They're all very smart and nice people who do their best to help you having the best time of your life here in Australia.

Cheers

When I arrived in Melbourne and was starting my work and travel experience there I was actually really sceptic. Melbourne is such a big and diverse city so that one might get the feeling to get lost in it. How am I supposed to find a job here and be able to save up some money? Therefore I was so glad to be supported by the WTC office in Melbourne. Not only did they arrange some casual jobs for me but also helped me to find something on a more long term base. And of course they made it clear and very easy for me to come over whenever I need an advice wether according to working, traveling or living in Australia. With that help and support I was able to start my gap year very optimistic and motivated. Thanks for that!
