Pack your bag, grab your passport & camera and jump on that plane!

How much money do I need to take with me?

You must have access to sufficient funds to support yourself for the initial stage of your holiday in Australia and you may be asked to show evidence of this upon arrival. We suggest arriving in Australia with an equivalent of at least AU$5000. The amount you need will depend upon your travel plans and the length of stay in Australia.

I’m travelling alone, how do I meet people?

Our Australia Gap Year is designed to help you make friends as soon as you arrive in Australia! Most people doing Oz Gap Year arrive alone and stay in touch with friends from the group for the rest of their trip. You’ll spend your first week having loads of fun and getting to know each other. After the week is up we can advise you on how to find a shared apartment in Sydney/Melbourne or continue travelling Australia together.

Medicare is Australia’s governmental public health policy. If you are on a Working Holiday Visa you may be eligible to be covered by Medicare for the duration of your stay in Australia. Medicare is an add on, not a replacement for any other insurances you may have so you still need to have valid travel insurance! Citizens of the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Republic of Ireland and New Zealand are covered for the duration of their approved visa time in Australia. Citizens of Malta and Italy are covered by Medicare for a period of 6 months from their date of arrival in Australia. All other countries unfortunately are not eligible for Medicare support but as long as you have travel insurance you’ll be covered!

Faster International Payments.

How do you help me find jobs?

Our Oz Gap Year program includes Australia’s best job service for travellers; Travellers At Work! Upon arrival, our Work & Travel Experts will spend time with you to establish what kind of jobs you’re looking for and where and when you’d like to work. We’ll review your CV and help you adapt it to suit Aussie employers. We’ll provide you with access to the Travellers At Work job database, so you can begin applying for jobs at your earliest convenience. If at any time you need some guidance just swing by and have a one-on-one session with one of our TAW reps who can help you out in your job search!

What training courses will I need to apply for jobs in Australia?

In Australia, Health and Safety laws require that workers in certain professions (including Hospitality & Construction) undergo compulsory basic training and become certified to be eligible for employment. All hospitality staff must hold certification known as an RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) before being eligible for employment on licensed premises. You will also need RGS (Responsible Gambling Services) certification to work in premises with gambling facilities. To work on a construction site it is a requirement that you hold an OH&S General Induction Certificate or “White Card” as it’s commonly known. Your Australia Gap Year package in Sydney includes an RSA course (valid in QLD, NT, WA & SA), plus a bar skills course.

How can I get a second year and third year Working Holiday Visa extension?

To obtain a 2nd year visa extension, you must complete three months (or 88 days) of work in a regional part of Australia. Our travel experts can assist you in your 2nd year/3rd year visa jobs search.

As of February 2019, we learned that the Australian Government plans to update the WHV rules to change the age, location, and work requirements, as well as to offer a third-year visa option. These changes are expected to be announced in the next few months. If you’re considering the Working Holiday Visa, be sure to check the Australian Home Office website, check your Working Holiday Visa eligibility or contact Grabatour Travel for the latest information, requirements, and restrictions before you apply.

Tax Refunds in Australia

As a working holidaymaker in Australia you may be eligible to receive a tax refund. Our tax refund experts will help you with everything, so you’ll get the maximum refund possible. When you leave Australia, we can also help you claim your superannuation refund too.
