Hi,

Me and my partner will be travelling Oz on a WHV from oct this year and it's starting to get scary. We have lots of questions but my main worry is the things still going on in England... mainly debt! I have a phone contract, a student overdraft a couple of small direct debits.

Does anyone have any advice on these things?

Would be great to get to know some fellow travelers :) Feel free to FB!

I'm heading to AUS in August and my phone contract runs out in November - So I'm just going to buy out of it (£50) and ask them to unblock my phone so it's open to all networks. Then i will pick up a pay as you go SIM card over there as I'm sure that's what many travellers do. Pay as you go works better for obvious reasons!

Mines got a fair bit longer than that so won't be able to buy it out. I'm hoping I can change it to some sort of international tariff or freeze it. Suppose I'll go and speak to 3! Where you off to first?
