Waste of money!

Do not waste your money on Global Work and Travel! They make you think they're going to do everything for you however this is far from the truth. I had to find my own job, flights and insurance as everything they offer is ridiculously overpriced. They only find you a job if you want to go to the main tourist destinations. When I found this out it was too late for a refund. Please don't waste thousands of dollars on this like I have. Show details

Do it yourself, save more than half your money

Overpriced flights, travel insurance and everything in between, don’t fulfill promises. Waited 4 months for my visa to be rejected after following all the steps. Went on the trip after 3 months of waiting, lost my Apple Watch with no refund by the overpriced travel insurance. It’s a business that’s solely set on profit. Take my advice, do your own planning and research, save more than half your money and have a better outcome. Cheers! Show details

Great staff and support

John, (my trip coordinator) was extremely helpful and friendly, making the overall experience so far straightforward and enjoyable. Absolutely one of the best teams i’ve met so far and i’m looking forward for what’s yet to come. He made a big jump a lot easier and explained everything perfectly, would work with them again 100% and recommend him and the rest of the team to anyone going through the process.

Helpful and great communication!

Jack has been super lovely and helpful in explaining everything I need to know. He made sure to discuss all my plan options as my original one didn’t fit what I wanted. Made sure I was ok with everything and I couldn’t recommend someone more! Show details

Amazing

I had a travel coordinator called John, he was absolutely fantastic with every aspect of his job from talking on the phone to giving me more than enough information I need for my trip so far. Even spoke with my concerned parents to reassure them everything is fine. John was a pleasure to have and wish him the best. Show details

Travelling Canada with Global work & travel

I must say Global work & travel is rather expensive but their service is helpful and you get a few freebies a long the way. Miya, My coordinator gave me comfort in my first solo work and travel experience. She helped me with jobs, visa process and was very supportive when I was freaking out haha. She has such a kind soul, makes it very easy to get along with her. So glad I got her as my coordinator! Show details

Au Pair in Italy

I had a great experience with Global work and travel an an Au pair in Italy. My arrival coordinator, Julie-Anne, responded to my emails promptly and professionally, always ensuring I got what information and support I needed. They took into account other international travel plans that impacted the hiring and visa stage for my application and always gave me the best advice. Show details

Questions & Answers

My daughter booked with you prior to covid and is now in New Zealand Oct 2022. She's had a terrible experience with GW&T so far. Firstly you did not give her the address of the hostel which caused delays at customs, and she had to sort it by calling a canadian number. Then at her hostel people were fighting outside, and she was not aware of a code to get in. This is at 2am after a long journey from UK. She was scared and frightened, ended up going in with another person who arrived luckily, but the hostel was so dirty, she is now in a hotel, and still not getting any help from GW&T. Why all theses problems? why aren't you helping her? She is 20 years old and on her own, and paying for accommodation. What was the £900 she paid you for?
