  1. Moving to Australia is a big decision. And no doubt you will want to start your new life with as much money as possible. One of the main factors affecting the amount of money you actually start out with is how you choose to exchange your funds into Aussie dollars. That’s where Moneycorp can help. Currency markets are constantly fluctuating, but their experts can monitor them for you, helping you trade at the right time, in the right way – when rates are in your favour. As a result, you’ll get more dollars for your pounds. Timing is key It’s important to plan ahead to give yourself an opportunity to take advantage of any favourable exchange rate movements. Leaving your currency transfers to the last minute can cost you more than you might think. If you were transferring £50,000 into Australian dollars on the dates below, you would have received the following: 17 March 2011 A$82,235 12 May 2011 A$77,185 That’s a difference of A$5,050 (or £3,310) in just over two months!

  2. After 7 months of waiting, myself and my husband have been granted a regional sponsored 475 visa and are due to fly out to Adelaide on the 10th February 2010. We are going through so many mixed emotions at the moment due to issues with family members and often wonder if we are doing the right thing. We have support from friends although family are taking the news quite hard – to the point where they think it will affect our relationship. Apart from pulling on our heart strings its making our decision tough and we are now at the point where our house is on the market, we have given notice at work and selling our car. This is something we have both wanted since spending 8 months in Oz in 2003, we are in our late 20’s and early 30’s and just feel it’s the right time to do it. We also worry about the current climate and worry about securing jobs when we arrive as well as making a lives for ourselves. Has anyone been through a similar situation? How do you know if you are making the right decision?
