Hi all! Im off to Australia with OzIntro on 22 March for a year. Is anyone going around the same time? Im all booked and sorted apart from travel insurance. Real Traveller quoted me £270.00, however other companies come up with quotes in the region of £170.00 which makes me question if they are as comprehensive. So anyway, Im now totally confusing myself!!! Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks x

Hi there,

I have just bought my travel insurance through STA Travel it was pretty costly think it was bout £350 but it covers everything you could think of this is for 12 months. I am doing South America, New Zealand, Fiji and Australia. I have a work visa for Australia bit worried about this but sure i will be fine i am to do any work. I have heard lots about Ozintro...How does it work? How long are you planning on being in Australia?

OzIntro put together a 7 day package which is an introduction to Australia. Its £399 and includes 7 nights in a hostel, working holiday visa, 7 days of activities and tours including Jet boat trip round Sydney Harbour, surf lessons, trip to Blue Mountain, dinner up Sydney Tower etc They arrange an Australian bank account for you, give you a vodafone sim card, give you loads of travelling tips and info, help you find work out there and places to stay. They also pick you up from the airport among other things so really great value. Im going out for 12 months hey who knows if I love it that much maybe longer! The website is if you want to have a look. With regard to the insurance maybe my first quote would be the better option as it seemed to cover every eventuality. Id rather spend the extra £100 for peace of mind esp cosidering the amount of time Im out there for. When are you off out there? Paula
