    WHV Insurance advice! Please help.

    insureandgo have always been spot on when I have needed insurance in the past STA was double the prices we were being quoted if that helps
  2. Hi, Me and my girlfriend are off traveling to Oz in March on a WHV and cannot wait !! Our bank accounts are currently being set up with Commonwealth Bank and we have our Tax File Numbers being sorted too so that we can start work immediately when something comes up. Ideally we want to do the kind of work we cannot do here in England .. i.e. Beach / Sun / Fruit Picking jobs but at the same time we are not fussed as long as we get the chance to experience Oz ! We are due to land in Cairns on the 5th March 2013 and staying in a hotel for the first week of our travels. Eventually we plan to travel from Northern Australia to Eastern/Southern and eventually round to Perth over the year. Just wondered if anyone had any answers or helpful advice for the questions below ? * Any recommended Sharehouses /Hostels in Cairns (and generally Australia ) that are ideal for couples ? i,e. Double room with shared bathrooms? But still cheap enough for backpackers ? *Whats the best mobile network to get on once we are out there? Preferably pay as you go ? *Are there any websites that are good and worth signing up to for help finding work ? i.e wwoofing *Places we shouldn't leave without seeing ? * Is it worth taking our £GBP out to Oz and exchanging it out there or is the exchange rate better before we go ? * Best way to travel from town to town and costs ? Also anything else that might spring to your mind to help us would be great Thanks in advance ! Lee :wink:
