Arrival information

Bali

You will need to arrange your own arrival into Denpasar Airport in Bali on day 1. An airport transfer is included your starting accommodation.

You can arrive in advance of the start date and still take up the inclusive transfer if you book extra night's accommodation through us. If you wish to arrive before the start date then please let us know this in advance.

Your trip will finish on day 12 in Ubud. A return airport transfer is not included but your guide can help arrange this for you. A transfer by minivan to Denpasar Airport takes around 1.5 hours and costs approx £5. We recommend you do not book an onward flight out of Bali until around 1 pm on day 12 at the earliest.

Please note: You will need to book your own flight from Bali to Australia in advance, and the cost of this flight is not included.

Australia

You should arrange your flights to arrive into Sydney Airport (SYD) on a Sunday, depending on your start date. You will need to go to a pre-set meeting point at Sydney airport and a greeter will direct you to the shuttle bus which will take you directly to your hostel to begin your first week of fun and adventure!

If you want to arrive a few days earlier into Sydney, we will be happy to help you organise any additional accommodation you may need (at extra cost). Please contact us for further details.

Australia: Absolute Oz

Week 1: Sydney and Beach Camp

Accommodation for the first 7 nights of your stay is included, in a city centre hostel in Sydney during nights 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7, and in shared accommodation during your stay at beach camp on nights 4 and 5.

In your hostel in Sydney, you’ll enjoy modern facilities in shared dorm accommodation with up to 10 people. The hostel is a hub of exciting city action, with its own backpacker bar. The onsite café serves breakfast and there’s also a kitchen with fridges and storage. The hostel has 24-hour reception, phone booths on every floor, security lockers, laundry facilities, Internet and Wi-Fi, and a postal service.

Some meals are included in week 1: A welcome dinner and drink, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 4 free drinks. Other meals are not included.

What do I do about accommodation after the first week in Australia?

After the first 7 days of accommodation some people decide to extend their stay in a hostel or to rent an apartment. The most popular option is to rent an apartment, and our team in Sydney can assist you with this. The advantage of renting is that it is the cheaper option and you get your own private room. Our customers often end up renting a place with the friends they meet in their first week on the programme. You can expect to pay £100-£150 per week. The minimum contract is normally 3 months but some agencies will ask you to commit to six months.

Alternatively you can extend your stay in a hostel. This is a great option for those that want to travel around quite a lot. Hostels offer cheaper rates for those that want a long term stay, for example for one month or more. It is really easy to book accommodation in hostels. You can often walk in and get a room that day but we recommend that you make a reservation the night before. Depending on where you stay in Australia, you can expect to pay around £140-£175 per week.

Please note that when you are working in Australia, you will earn enough to cover your living expenses like rent, food and bills. If you would like any more information, please contact us for more details.
