Great arrival information at the London office, so helpful with everything and go through everything in so much detail so you know what you are doing. Once you get her and settled to know everything all the information needed it makes it so much easier to know how everything works in the UK.

My trip coordinator has been extremely helpful and friendly, all but holding my hand during the entire process! It makes it so much easier having someone help you through processes like opening a bank account, tax refunds, NIN and explaining NHS. She also may as well be a travel agent with all her handy tips to get around Europe.

Original review: June 8, 2018

Really friendly team and I got placed very quickly, however I felt there were times where communication could of been better in the wait time of attaining employment. To be honest I pictured a different service experience from what was delivered in terms of communication, delivery and what was included part of the package. Though I enjoyed the service, I'm not sure the cost of the program being quite expensive you got the right amount of service and it was sold better than what I received in the end, but as I just arrived it may improve as the team have been very welcoming and friendly.

Having constant contact with my trip coordinator was helpful, and took the stress out planning my trip and organising all the correct documentation.

Everything that was explained was crystal clear, I would and have recommended this window of work and travel chances to friends and family, a few friends of mine will be coming down in a few months and they will not regret it! The coordinator and crew responsible are very well organized and respectful, I personally couldn't be any more excited to be here!

This whole trip wouldn't have been possible without Josie. Whenever I had a question or a worry, she was there to help. She has helped me through every step and I owe her a lot. She is a credit to herself and the entire company. Throughout the process, she's kept in contact and been very patient with some very foolish questions. Thank you so much for your help.

'Twas on a warm summer's evening, on the glorious River of Cambridge was when I first spoke with the one they call Josie; Endearing, pleasant and rambunctious. A lady of sorts. She has been my Samwise to my Frodo on this long and wonderful journey but without her wisdomous wisdom, would I have made it to the green pastures of Canada? Probably not. I will commemorate her for her highest order of service and attentiveness. She has my thanks. Merci beaucoup and good day.

Original review: May 25, 2018

I absolutely took a step (I should actually say a bloody leap) when I signed up to this. I was young, confused, inspired and just busting to explore and see what else was out there. My friend had just signed up and started telling me all about this program and I was thinking like okay, sure, and as I was listening, I honestly considered taking part and checking it out. Let me tell you... BEST DECISION I've made. I'm a "go getter". I'm vivacious. I'm crazy. So what else could come into my life at this time that is more perfect? So that's what I kept asking myself. And when you continuously ask yourself the same question and cannot find another answer, then it is fair to say that the answer is right in front of you. So from there, I met some absolute gems within Global (Dylan, Ashley, Jasmine and most importantly Alex who is my savior) and they helped me decide to change my love in the best way.

So to wrap it all up, I made a lifetime decision that I would not normally do and it has been so awesome as of yet. I'm just a blonde chick, who comes from a small town on the west side of Australia who lives on a farm with her dad, who has a wicked bunch of friends and a laid back lifestyle. If I can jump into this lifestyle then so can you, bloody do it, it'll change the person you are.

I moved from London, England - to Canada. Unless you've done something as drastic as move country before, you know what you're in for. I have never done anything like this before. Oh my God, there is so much to wrap your head around. Global Work and Travel look after you at every step, in your own time. The coordinators are so knowledgeable, patient (and genuinely lovely people). I almost feel like they did most of the work for me. I could not have done this without them. If I had even attempted to go it alone, I would have thrown in the towel and stayed in my monotonous life back home. The support does not end there - it lasts for the whole two years of your stay!! Don't like your job in your new country? Global will get you another one! I am loving my time here in Canada, it's a little overwhelming actually.

I highly recommend Global to anybody who is interested in traveling safely. They are incredibly supportive and it's a perfect way to meet a group of like-minded travelers. Josie has made me feel safe and confident with my decision to come to Canada on a two year working holiday visa from Australia. With Global Work and Travel's knowledge and experience, it's genuinely the most fulfilling way to plan a working holiday visa without worries.
