I have been contemplating travelling for quite a while and decided last week that I am just going to go for it and aus seems like the best choice. Applied on 12/2/05 for HWV and hoping that should come through next week and am then going to hand in my notice so hoping to be out there within 6 wk! All v unorganised at the moment and most prob think I am mad as havent planned anything or researched anything yet so will be keeping you guys v busy for the next few weeks! Had to take these drastic steps as otherwise it would would just never happen! That is lityerally where i have got too! few q

Where do you get an open ended flight ticket?

Any advice please get it on here!! cheers guys

Hi tino1982. It took about a week for My Whv to come through but it can take anything up to six weeks. If you have a sort of date you want to come back you can get a flight with singapore airlines and they let you change your flight dates free of charge, so its really like an open ended ticket. i couldnt find any places to buy open ended tickets so i went for singapore airlines. Hope this helps. David
