    House prices going up??

    How easy is to get a mortgage? How much deposit do you usually need? I’m aware it would much depends on individual circumstances, but generally speaking? here in UK we always had the idea of selling the glumly 3 bedroom terrace and buying a 5 bedroom detached with a swimming pool near the beach!!! I guess those days are over!!!

    Flights to Australia - reliability?

    Thanks Pete! That’s very encouraging! Luckily we are fully vaccinated! just need to start making things happen, figure out the order, (pack, rent out the house, send stuff to Australia, sort out bank accounts here, pensions, sell 2 cars,) and by the sound of it, just get ready to go, whenever it’s possible! I just wouldn’t want to leave loose ends! Our flights with Quantas haven’t been cancelled yet! So still a bit of hope things might be ok for November! But really thanks, I can see there are other options and it is possible!

    I understand what you are saying, it’s all a good point! Under normal circumstances I would 100% agree with you, on this weird times, I think repatriation could be a real possibility if your plans get disrupted by airlines or border changes, and you are facing being homeless as you were ready to go! I think due to the exceptionally difficult circumstances COVID has put all of us in, making such a big move (which under normal circumstances it’s quite complex and stressful) can get desperate very quickly due to the unpredictability of the flights and the constant changes in the immigration rules.

    Flights to Australia - reliability?

    Hi Pete i was just wondering if you have finally made it to Perth now? how did you get from Howard Springs to Perth? I’m assuming that is an extra cost to factor in your budget! We are making the same trip London-Perth but we won’t be ready to leave until earliest October! we have booked flights with Quantas for November but we are expecting to be cancelled any moment! So, I am between buying new tickets with either Singapore or Qatar or join the queue for a DFAT flight. What would be your view?

    Do you think if you get offered a repatriation flight, that’s it! No cancellations? No changes?. the only think is, it sounds like you need to be packed and ready to go because they give you a short notice!

    It must be such a relief to finally be there, for me it feels like a huge steep mountain to climb in front of me! we are also flying with a five years old! But I have so much to worry about getting ready to go that getting there and starting a new life there, is not on my radar of preoccupations at the moment!

    -marisawright/ That sounds quite straight forward and a good plan b in case everything else goes wrong!

    Thank you! That’s a good idea, I haven’t really look into how those flights work and if one of those will be a possibility for us! I need to give 2 months notice at work, we are renting out our house, and haven’t done anything about that! I just feel we won’t be ready before September time, so with those flights can you choose when to go?

    How was your trip? I’m glad you made it! I hope you have a non too difficult quarantine time! it's good to know that people is travelling despite the uncertainty! did you get your flight cancelled many times?

    Such an interesting point! If we were ready we should try to go now! Or at least ditch the fixed date to consider other options! thanks for your view! it is complicated with a house to rent out and jobs to give notice to…. But still it is time to re think!

    Hi with the recent announcement of the borders closed until 2022 and Quantas pushing its flights to December, we are expecting our flight London-Perth direct, to be cancelled. I am wondering what to do??? 1. My PR visa entry limit is mid November, do we buy new tickets with an airline that is actually flying? And which one? 2. do we apply for repatriation flight? How does it work? My husband is Australian and we are relocating from UK with a 4 year old who needs to start school in January. 3. Do we just accept the fact that we are not going to get there until mid 2022 and continue living in Limbo here? We don’t feel we can faced an other long winter! any thoughts really appreciate!
