actually your visa is included in on it...so not so bad...i may look at this myself.

I was stressing then..... the insurance does look a good level of cover!

i talked to them just now...pretty much so covers me for everything for 375 euro...i asked about if i could get a discount BECAUSE i already have my workinh holiday visa...unfort nope.

im not 100% sure but i am sure someone posted something about these guys a weeks ago about not to go with them - i cant remember why, can anyone else remember? or am i just wrong...

i havent a clue about insurance...i mean the prices are all at about the same...and when there are differences it seems to be things for cover concerning extreme sports / personal belongings, cash on yah and all that....

Sure you aren’t mixing them up with Visa First? They are quite big in Ireland?

My friend used them, what a night mare that was! now there is a company to avoid!

Thanks for the heads up though... but i have no complaints yet, visa was emailed in 24hours, insurance came two days later

ok i have found slightly cheaper insurance...recommended by Allied Irish Bank (AIB)

ACE Traveller...slightly cheaper insurance at €359...covers everything! personal belongings up to 1,000 Euro....

ive done business with visa first...just to get my visa for australia but nothing else...i havent had any problems with them so far...

probably could have done my visa through australian website...but i was so busy with work at the time...plus i always have it in my head that if i go through angencys that the do things more properly and effiicently than me.............aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa cant spell today!

My friend used them last year then got bombarded with Bulgarian sales calls for bank accounts, tax numbers, accommodation kitchen sink you name it. Fortunately he didn’t but his girl fiend did and got charged $700 to transfer her money from Ireland to OZ!
