FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We would always recommend checking Australian Government website for any specific enquiries.
On the Government website it states that you should have $5,000AUD in your bank account on arrival if you’re coming on a Working Holiday visa. This is a good savings target if you are wanting to either travel for a month or set yourself up for work after the Welcome To Travel week.
However, everybody is different and to give yourself the best chance of experiencing as many things as possible in Australia, we would recommend just saving up as much as possible before you come travelling.
Drinks: Both the welcome and farewell meal will include a drink, your food tour will include two and the the bar crawl four, pretty good going! Aside from that drinks will average at $7-11 but we can also point you to plenty of happy hours at $5/6 a drink, so it really depends how often you want to go out in that first week.
The Welcome To Travel team are there to give you advice all throughout the week and whether it’s work or travel you’re looking to organise after, we’ll be able to help you.
We will go through options that suit you specifically in the one-on-ones on the Saturday of the tour.We have a Travel Community Manager who is there to help you throughout your whole time in Australia.
Don’t panic! You will be able to jump on the free wi-fi to let everyone back home know that you got to Melbourne safe and sound.
As part of your Welcome to Travel: Melbourne package you will receive our two-part employment guide.
One part is about the tips and advice on finding a job, and the second part is exclusive access to our portfolio of employers in several sectors such as hospitality, construction, sales and marketing and many more.
We also send out a weekly job email, with new job employment opportunities all throughout Australia.
Expect the best experience ever! As long as you’re polite and friendly then you’ll be fine. To get the best out of your experience we recommend talking to people in your dorm as soon as possible. Travel broadens the mind and that is mainly because of people you meet. Listen to where they’ve been, what they’ve loved, what they recommend, their funniest stories, all of it! This will be you in a few months!
Sure from time to time you may have a cliché guitar player, a snorer or a 6am deodorant sprayer (you’ll know what I mean soon!) but that’s all part of travelling and they’ll form your stories and travel experiences!
All dorms have lockers, but you will need to buy a small padlock to use them.
We aim to try and get everyone on Welcome To Melbourne in the same dorm, but if you have any special requests such as, you want to be in an all female dorm or you want to upgrade to your own room. Then will be able to assist you.
Nothing quite sums it up quite like the viral video which we made ‘Things Never Said By Backpackers’
These countries include:
Italy – you don’t need to have been living in Italy, but you must be an Italian citizen and meet the other agreement conditions
