Global Work and Travel has helped my dreams become a reality. I love that I was assignment a separate person for each stage of my journey (e.g. travel coordinator, arrival coordinator). Each person helping me on my journey from Global has been so friendly and helpful and has answered any question I had. I valued so much that they didn't throw everything at me all at once, and staggered each thing I needed to do, so I wasn't overwhelmed at the beginning.

However, one thing I would say is at the very beginning of my journey, I would have benefited from being given a costs list, with a breakdown of each cost, for example (biometrics etc.), as I did slightly go in blind and not really understand al the expenses that would come my way. Overall, I would recommend to anyone Global Work and Travel and would definitely say that the fee for letting Global help you is so worth it in the end, as without them helping me each step of the way, I would not be where I am now.

    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!!!

    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.

    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!"

    Tiarna was an amazing help to me, she helped me each and every time I reached out, I had a few issues with paperwork and flights and she always solved the problem for me with ease and assurance. She kept me calm and focused on the end goal, she went above and beyond for me, she was wonderful and I would highly recommend her to any future client. She continues to check in with me to make sure I am happy and if I have any issues to just contact her, she really is amazing.

    I booked a two week trip to the Costa Rica animal rescue center in Alajuela Costa Rica through Global Work and Travel. It was so amazing and definitely worth it. I learned so much and gained so much life experience and gratitude for life on this trip! I am so glad I went through global work and travel as they made me feel safe and secure in my trip. And also were very accommodating and kind to me. I highly recommended global work and travel to any person looking to explore!
