It was excellent

10/10

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

My start in Melbourne

9/10

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!

From Australia with love

7/10

I arrived in Sydney in Australia on the 1st of December 2016 ready to start my adventure. With me I had a big backpack. After travelling for almost 2 days I felt relived to have arrived even though I knew I still had to find the hostel. At the hostel I shared a room with 5 other girls. Little did I know that one of them would become one of my best friends here in oz.

After 1 week in the hostel I attended the information meeting at The Work and Travel office. Here I met a girl from the Netherlands and we decided to attend the 1 week Surf Camp tougether. She is also now one of my friends.

The Work and Travel agency has been there for me since day one and I am very grateful for that. Knowing that I could come and talk to them no matter what I needed to talk about. They would e-mail or call me to check up on how I am doing.

They get a lot of jobs through the agency and I was lucky enough to work with the Captain Cook Cruises for the Vivid festival. It was a great experience that will stay with me forever.

After 6 months in Australia my journey have now changed from being a backpacker to wanting to stay here and build my life here.

Ups and down with the best support

10/10

I was in Sydney for over then 10 month. i was traveling around cairns, goldcoast, south and west coast and it was beautiful. The travel desk in the office helped me a lot with the panning the trip and it made it really uncomplicated and we was able to enjoy the hole time from our holiday! I had a great trip and saw amazing things.
I was living the hole time in sydeny and I often needed a job. Especially at the beginning, because my English was not really good. The girls done really the best to help me and found me mutiple jobs witch was just fun and good money! Over work and travel I got jobs at a bar in Lunapark, on a party boat, in different wear houses and much more! They also support you with essential tips and tricks for work or just for the life general speaking. Especially Aimee helped me a lot with my life there, because of family problems back at my home country, she was just like a big sister to me. I needed someone to help me from some situation were you normaly just want to be at home. But work and travel make u feel they are there for you in every situation, it's not just a community - it's a big family! They are doing so much more for you then they have to do. Thanks a lot for the great support and for so much fun - I will never forget this amazing time and you guys!

How can this program be improved?

The office gives you a lot of opputiunity. You can make friends and find work together at the desk. Or you can start planning your journey and the friendly stuff is always helpful with news, tips and discounts. They help you from the start till the end and with everything between as well

Safe and Easy Program

9/10

When I graduated college in 2012 I knew I wanted to travel, but committed to teaching for three years first. As my three years of teaching came to an end I began looking for programs that were trustworthy and helpful. This program is exactly that. I first emailed the company and found a quick response. Then, was able to Skype and ask further questions, while getting to interact face to face, which put me a little more at easy. After deciding to move forward with this program, the whole process was extremely easy and very exciting. Within two months of my first contact, I was leaving for Australia with a job and a place to live. The transition was so easy, they really helped me get everything set up the first week I was here and provided me with opportunities to meet new people.

The family that I have been placed with has been absolutely wonderful! There was no surprises when I came here, everything was exactly what the program said it would be and what the host family said it would be. I wouldn't change anything about this experience.

I highly recommend this program.
