I’ve never been more excited and less stressed to travel in my life all thanks to Adrian from GWAT (Global Work and Travel). Within ten minutes of starting our phone call I already felt like I was welcome and most importantly well informed how this trip will work.

I had the pleasure of being able to work alongside Stacey who assisted with all enquirers I had and if she wasn't able to assist, she was more than helpful as she passed me to someone who could. Stacey provided all of the relevant information I needed for my trip and was very clear and easy to chat with. During COVID and trying to begin my trip with such a big headache holding me back Stacey kept up to date all relevant travel information, changing all of my plans completely from when we first started planning (Pre covid) herself and her team were able to adapt well to the change keeping me informed and constantly up to date. Even with all the new restrictions in place and all the extra steps I need to take, Global have made it the easiest process. I would recommend!!!

    Global Work and Travel have been super helpful in organising my entire trip to Canada. From the moment I called them up, they were constantly in touch to keep me posted on what was needed to make the trip a success, offering CV advice, location guides, money saving tips and transport options. The perks that came with the trip have been super helpful such as the hostel stay and having orientation was definitely super helpful! Both staff members were lovely and always happy to help with any requirements! So glad I booked with this company as even whilst I'm still here, they stay in touch to make sure we're ok and help out where it may be needed! :)

    I wish I could personally thank everyone at the Global team who helped me achieve this once in a lifetime experience. But I have to give my special thanks to the team who helped me with my big leap - Tiarna, Jaz and Vedrana. I have had my eyes open to a whole new different way of life, learnt new things and skills that I’ll be taking back home with me, met amazing new friends, interesting different people and I’ve also fallen deeply in love during my time here. The confidence I have gained within myself is something I can’t express in words.

    I came from a small town where everything I needed was only minutes away, I knew everyone I saw and they knew me. I felt trapped, closed in, bored. There wasn’t a second thought when I started the process with Global and although I was upset and terrified to leave behind everything I knew and was comfortable with, I am so glad I did. I am so proud and happy of the person I have grown into. I couldn’t have done it without the help of the Global team and my family.

    The team are beyond amazing, they kept in contact with me from the first inquiry phone call and answered every question I had (and lots of questions that my mum had to ask!) Of course I was skeptical at first, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into but I was constantly in touch with everyone from phone calls, to Skype calls or just emails keeping me up to date with everything. It soothed my worries straight away. I didn’t know where to start with getting a Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa so having the team run through and tell me everything I needed to provide was a massive weight off my shoulders. They took care of all the stressful bits that come with organising life overseas, organising flights and transport from the airport to the hostel that they also arranged. They found me a job before I even left the country! Not once did I feel abandoned or left in the dark from the moment I left right up until even now, they still keep in contact with me.

    I have fallen deeply in love during my time here, I have met the most amazing man. He has opened his arms and heart to me and has shown me his country, his home. I wouldn’t have been able to meet him if it wasn’t for Global. I really could write all day about how this experience has changed me as I’m sure everyone else could too. But this is something you need to experience yourself, and I can guarantee you won’t regret it!! I am beyond please with Global, they have done such an amazing job. Everyone should be proud.

    He was very excited for me. I hope that it’s all that he said it would be. Amazing opportunity and I’m glad that I will have global to hold my hand threw the whole experience. I liked how he remembered our previous day's conversation and was capable of getting answers to my questions. And how he explained that Global take care of all my flights and insurances. So I don’t have to stress about any of it. All I need to do it get my passport and arrive at airport on day of departure. And Florence Italy here I come. Great price at $5095 covering insurances and flights and getting me employment. Hooray.

    Global Work & Travel response

    Hello Faye,

    We're so happy you had such a great experience with Jordan! We know that since you posted this review we have got in contact with you to clarify what you've said here, but we would just like to take this opportunity to reiterate for anyone who may be reading this review.

    Unfortunately due to the fluctuating nature of air travel and insurance, we are unable to include them as part of the package. We hope that you are still satisfied with the huge range of inclusions that come with this trip anyway.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. We very much look forward to setting up your trip to Italy!

    What can I say... Words just don't seem enough to express how great my Amazing Dynamic Duo (Trip Coordinator - Reece / Travel Concierge - Ashley) are. From the time the booking was made and notwithstanding we also have Covid-19 thrown into the mix and then all the way right through to me finally reaching my destination Prague, Czech Republic.

    Throughout the entire time, my dynamic duo have always been extremely professional, courteous, helpful and and and... but above all they have gone above and beyond the call of duty in assisting me with all that I needed to do in making my dream become a reality and me landing in Prague especially during this crisis the world is now facing with the Covid-19.

    Now I get to enjoy my birthday abroad in a new country that I have never really been to before. And so, I look forward to the new chapter in my life learning to teach abroad and embrace the new way of life in Prague! I would like to take this opportunity in giving my heartfelt thanks to both my Amazing Dynamic Duo (Trip Coordinator - Reece / Travel Concierge - Ashley) because without you, I would not be here in Prague right now... "THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!"

    Global Work & Travel response

    Hello Sonja,

    Global Work and Travel has helped my boyfriend and I travel experience begin! Allowing us to find a great working environment after Covid took place we didn't think it would be possible, we are stoked and couldn't recommend it enough! We've loved the communication and support throughout the whole experience makes us feel secure and comfortable in entering a new country. We can't wait for what's to come.

    Dodgy company, do not give them any money. GWAT will happily take your deposit, not organise anything to contracted dates, ignore you and finally refer you to their cancellations team in another country who will refuse the refund you’re contractually entitled to. Unprofessional, terrible communication and unethical.

    Global Work & Travel response

    Hi Taryn,

    We're saddened to hear that you feel this way about your recent experience with us.

    We would never ignore any of our customers emails or calls, so please provide us with further information so we can look into this further for you.

    We do have cancellation fees in place & our trip deposits are non-refundable, but we make this very clear to you upfront before you choose to book with us. Each customer has to tick several boxes during the booking forms making it clear they have read and understood the conditions, including that their deposit is non refundable.

    If you are looking to cancel your trip, you do need to speak with our Cancellations Team, which is all done via email correspondence and they would have provided you with your options.

    We offer Lifetime Deposit Guarantee which means if you are unable to travel now, you can simply put your trip on hold until the time is right. You can push your dates back and even change to another trip without any fees to do so. This gives you peace of mind that you haven’t lost your deposit, it is still on file with us for you to use in the future.

    Unfortunately we are unable to find you on our system, so if you can please share your contact details to feedback@globalworkandtravel.com we can look into this further for you.
