    • Exchanging GBP for AUD

      Perth Nov 26, 2014 at 6:19 AM

      Hi guys,
      I am planning on visiting Australia for the first time in Jan next year and I need some advice on where to exchange some sterling for some dollars.

      Generally I have been told and actually have experienced that you get a better buying rate of the local currency when buying locally in the country you are visiting.
      Is this still the case for Aus? Currently you get around 1.7 dollars for a pound here in the UK.
      Can anyone give a rough idea of what the exchange rate in Aus is?

      Also do the foreign exchange bureaus accept travellers cheques?

      I have looked into using a credit card or debit card but there are usage fees and non-sterling fees which i am trying to avoid.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Where to start my Working Holiday Visa experience??

      Australia Nov 12, 2014 at 10:59 AM

      Hello people, my name is Jo and I am travelling to Australia from Canada for one year! I was wondering where would be the best place to start off considering I would like to meet people and socialise as im going to travel alone! My top 4 choices are Australia's biggest cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth. So which places are best to start iff? I know Sydney is expensive but money is not a problem as I am going to be working to fund my trip as I go.

      Thanks for the answers!

      Is Jetstar pulling my leg?

      Australia Oct 29, 2014 at 3:23 AM

      I've booked a flight from Melbourne to Perth in January with Jetstar. A couple of weeks ago they send me an e-mail, telling me that the time of flight has been changed ... nothing bad, only an hour later. They asked me to accept that change and provided a link in the e-mail to their booking system.

      This link however didn't work. I always got a message that the server doesn't answer. I tried it directly on their website under the booking management. The info was the same but the button "continue" went into nirwana. So there again I couldn't accept that change. So I sent an e-mail to their helpdesk asking for support. I got a feedback mail, telling me that my mail had been received and that their staff will answer as soon as possible. That was 2 weeks ago ... so far they didn't bother to answer me. But in the meantime I received 2 additional mails from their booking system, telling me again about that change and asking for confirmation ... with the same dysfunctional link.

      Has somebody experience with that? I don't know if they are going to cancel that flight if I don't accept the change (what I would like to do, but can't).
