  1. Family Visits: Travel with a Companion

    Thanks for the info. It's been ages since I last flew on Emirates and they didn't have the standard seat charges then. We are dealing with elderly people here! Trying to convince them that it's ok to wait until 48 hours before their flight until they have seats next to each other won't be easy! The buggy is an absolute must...one of the travelers has mobility issues (both in their late 70's) and that time frame to get to the next flight is real tight! Thanks!
  2. Family Visits: Travel with a Companion

    Just an update. The two travel companions are coming here again next year for 6 weeks. Booked their tickets during the week and they arrive in mid January and they have consulted each other and agreed upon length of stay etc so that they can again travel together. This time they are booked on Emirates. The stop over on the way here is only an hour and 35 minutes so they have been told to ask for the buggy to get them from one terminal to the other. The last time they flew on Singapore airlines so will have to see what they make of this trip! Emirates change to having to pay to book seats is a rip off by the way!! Pay for the tickets and then go online to book seats only to be presented with an additional charge to book a standard seat.....not amused!

  6. Family Visits: Travel with a Companion

    Had the same issue with my father in law too. Once you start listing medical issues the travel insurance starts to get very expensive! In his case the policy was more than his ticket and he's in good health. The follow up on this is that the two travelers had a great time and are planning to travel here again at the end of the year. They are still in contact with each other in the UK (not romantically...just friends!) and the whole experience was a real positive one for them. I am still convinced that more family members would visit if they had a compatible travel companion...

  9. I did post this on the PIA site but maybe there are families moving here who didn't see it. Just received a phone call offering $600 per night for these dates! If you are planning the move with your family at the end of the year it might be a good idea to sort out your accommodation needs early. Although I run a furnished relocation / holiday rental business that's not the reason I am posting this. My family homes are booked solid for the peak December to February period......people have booked a year in advance! I have been renting furnished houses since 2008 and have not experienced such a demand for the peak dates before. There are many reasons: 1. There has been a large increase in the numbers of overseas tourism and many tourist are booking relocation / holiday properties. 2. The number of interstate visitors to South Australia has increased competing with the overseas market for available rentals. 3. It's a popular time for migrants to make the move and those in the know...like member and visitors to forums like this one know that accommodation needs to be booked early especially at this time of year. 4. There are so many friends and family member visiting people who have moved here during the past few years and they want to be close to where family and friends live and have located to. 5. Many overseas people escape the British winter and spend extended stays here during the peak summer months. 6. The unfurnished rental market cycles between periods of high and low availability. It's more competitive right now which means that furnished rentals have increased enquiries from people needing "emergency" accommodation whilst houses are being built, renvoated, repaired etc. Holiday rentals are expensive during the peak months and as places get booked there's a tendency to put up prices. If you are visiting or moving at the end of this year...please book early! In addition to the above: REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER 2017 If you are planning to move here in the first week of December there is a real issue with available accommodation between the 1st and the 7th. There is an Ashes test in Adelaide and this is coinciding with the Pan Pacific Oceana Games. These dates are already booked solid. I know people in the short term rental business who have booked out this week at $850 PER NIGHT!!!!!! As we are still in May and things are booked you could have a real issue if you are planning to move here in early December as hotels, short term rental homes etc will all be booked. If you are looking at flights and accommodation best to sort this difficult week out now or delay your arrival for a week?

  13. Like everyone else who moves out here we left behind friends and family. After the years went by we realised that elderly parents were avoiding the trip due to their age,the distance, and the prospect of traveling by themselves especially if one partner had passed away and they were alone. It was a real shame that surviving parents might not ever see grandchildren and great grandchildren and get to visit Australia. I thought that I would share my recent experience with perhaps the result being that your family can visit you, together with others who are in a similar position to themselves. My father in law is 77. He's lived alone for many years after my mother in law passed away 14 years ago. Despite us being here in Adelaide almost 10 years he had never visited...it was just too daunting a trip! Friends of our moved to Adelaide almost 4 years ago. They found themselves in a similar situation whereby a surviving parent would love to visit but the trip alone would just be too much to take on. Solution: We both requested possible dates that they could travel and then put them in contact with each other in the UK. They had never met before.The result was that after a couple of get together's they jointly agreed upon dates, we purchased their tickets this side and everything was put in motion to have them visit for a few weeks. Transport to Manchester airport was arranged, flights to Singapore, a hotel stop over and collection in Adelaide all sorted and after a barrage of calls and questions it was all finalised. The return trip for both of them was likewise arranged on the same date / flight. Everything worked out perfectly and it was such a success that they will be coming out here again. I am sure that this could work for many people who wouldn't want to do the trip alone. Maybe a Travel Companion section on a migration site like this one with a request for a travel partner for approximate dates, location here, UK location etc and see if they can get together in the UK, find out if they are compatible to travel together and family this side can assist with the arrangements. What do you think? Do you or anyone you know have a similar situation where friends or family would love to visit but wouldn't want to do the trip alone? I am not talking about a dating site! Just a get together of people who would get the support from having someone else to share the trip with. My father in law is already planning his next visit!!
