    • Payment of Tourist Visa Fee

      Solomon Islands Apr 30, 2015 at 9:10 PM

      Hi there -

      Anyone have any tips/suggestions for paying this?

      My wife needs a visa and the advice from the High Commission in Australia is that the fee (SBD$200) needs to be paid direct to the Ministry of Commerce, Labour and Immigration in Honiara. They suggest "find someone who can pay it for you there."

      Needless to say, this is a bit difficult if you don't live there!

      Has anyone managed to find someone who can assist with this at a reasonable price?

      This policy seems ridiculous and certainly isn't encouraging tourism!

      Comments appreciated!

    • Best Way To Source A Camper For A Road Trip In Australia?

      Australia May 19, 2015 at 7:33 PM

      We are planning an Aussie road trip in a camper (RV or campervan), starting in the Barossa Valley in Adelaide, heading along the coast route to the Great Ocean road. Plan is to drive from Melbourne to Sydney, up the east coast and all the way to Noosa.

      Have been doing some research and there seems to be a few options in Australia; - buy a used camper from a private sale (resell after trip) - buy a camper from a private dealer - hire one - rideshare with other travelers

      Campervan hire; wickedcampers.com.au/cheap-c... http://www.jucy.com.au/vehicles/

      Camper sales: http://www.melbournerv.com.au/ http://www.goldstreamrv.com.au/ http://www.pagebros.com.au/

      Came across this guide from an Aussie site which recommends buying a used camper through a private sale, as you can get a better deal; blog.gumtree.com.au/backpack...

      Leaning towards a used camper to buy as RVs from private dealers seem kind of expensive.

      Does anyone have any experience with the above sites or can recommend hiring, buying or other?

      Hello, we are 4 bestfriends who will be traveling to Perth from Oct27-Nov5 (10days&9nights). We are on a tight budget. Our budgets are approx $1000 each. Or less.
      We need advice/suggestions/ recommendations on:
      -travel sequence & activities (as we will be staying for quite sometime, where should we go first, and what are some free or low cost activities we can do? We're planning to go to Rottnest..should we stay there for a night or 2??)

      -accomodations ( we've searched online and through websites such as airbnb but we have problem finding the right locations for us to stay as we do not have our travel sequence planned out yet. We're also not sure to stay at one place the whole time we're there or change as we move along?)

      -transportations (could you suggest the cheapest ways for us to go around perth while we move along from one place to another?)

      We are really new at planning our own trips, your help would really help us a lot. Please & thank you :)

      Hi there I'm a recent UK graduate looking to spend a year abroad and improve my French working in New Caledonia. Can anyone help me out with information on the cost of living/rent and how difficult it would be to find work once over there?
      Even if you could recommend some useful websites for information that would be a huge help!
