Basically i think you have to do be doing a working holiday for minimum of a year to be eligable, but still what a bargain if you can get one! I can't find if its 100% a return ticket or not either but from the info they give it looks like it is.

Full details available in the link.............

Thanks a lot for this, much appreciated. It's one way only, though.

T&C's: The £10 fares are one-way only and available for travel between 15th August 2009 and 30th September 2009 and 1st November 2009 and 30th November 2009.

I just registered and you have to go down to their shop on August 5th and be one of the first 145 there to do it.

Annoying!

In the 'ol days you just needed to steal a loaf of bread worth a farthing and you got a one way trip there for free :-)

would you rather do that or pay nearer a grand?

I'm going to one of the listed locations where they are selling the holiday visas to ask a few questions such as accommodation and employment (Will they be recommending places to stay? Are there 6 month period jobs set up? Do these jobs have a range of criteria of qualifications necessary?)

Would be great to go to Australia to work and the experience but it feels as though once you get there you're on your own - is that worth £10?

Hopefully some light will be shed on the matter and reassures my paranoia. :p

its only worth it if you have already planned to go to Australia. A working holiday visa means you can only work for 6 months out of the 12. You only get granted 1 working holiday visa in a lifetime and they cost about £90.

It says you need a working holiday visa to apply for this flight so they are in a win win because if you dont get a £10 ticket you're not really not gonna go cos you will of just wasted £90 and bought a visa which you wont be able to get another one of.

As i said its great if you've already got plans to go to Australia in the next few months and havent already bought your plane ticket, but they are'nt going to give you a job or anything you will just get on the plane for a tenner and turn up in Australia where you will then need to find your own job, if thats what you want to do cos no one is forcing you to work for 6 months its just an option.

The deal is basically a Qantas return ticket for £678 (which isnt bad at all) with the possiblity of getting £668 back if your one of the lucky few to get a £10 ticket in August.

You don't have to have a job lined up, you have to keep moving around so you can't stay in one job the whole time as your supposed to be traveling. Also you need a certain amount of money in your bank account to qualify for a visa (I think it's two grand.) You also have to have a return ticket or the money on you I think (besides two grand). You can also take any job, but on the forms they will ask you what your skills you have and what your looking for, but that doesn't matter. They just want to make sure your not going there to live permanently.

too many conditions to call it £10..

the working holiday visa alone costs £149 via STATravel.
Plus its only one way, so unless you'll not return to the UK, a return flight must be bought

its still hot for those who need it and can get the return flight at similarly low price

Even if you get the return flight at full price you've still saved a grand...

thats not true, you could go over there and stay in sydney for 12 months and never leave, and work in the same job for 6 months while your there (it used to be 6 months working but only 3 months in any given job) the 6 month working rule is the only restirction to note, and yes that your supposed to have a certain amount of funds in your bank when you enter the country too but this is rarely checked anyway.

yes there'll be some saving but I doubt it will be "a grand"... a normal priced RETURN flight to sydney in Nov would only cost around £700,probably less if you look around

like I said it is still hot for those who need it

Well it's changed a bit now then. And they wanted copies of your bank statements, if that has changed now, well there you go.
#16
Bet they won't let anybody in like they do over..:whistling:
#17
just because you have a working visa doesn't mean you have to work. I was over there in April and there were not many jobs around. The recession was just starting to hit them.

So get your working visa £149ish, your £10 one way flight, have a great holiday....then get deported...job done. :-)

Who would have thought it, things are so bad they've brought back to the £10 Poms scheme! :-D

Works hard to find at the moment and i`m in a sought after profession!.

Working Holiday visa can be bought cheaper directly from the Australian Immigration website (as can all Australian Visas - dont pay other companies to do the simple ones like these)

Having said that visa costs seem to have rocketed. I had a WHV about five years ago. I'm sure it cost me £60 ish.

Also note you dont actually need to work when you have the visa. Just travel on it as usual (but dont bother buying the normal entry visa)

So this may be worth a gamble.

As someone who had a WHV over that way just a few months back, I can tell you that the above is not strictly true. It is amongst there conditions on the NZ and Oz Immigration websites, but was not applied at all in my experience,or that of the many many fellow backpackers I spoke to. A few need to know points:

1) They never check how much money you have in your bank, and the process of getting a visa stamp in your passport was significantly quicker than a regular holiday visa, in my previous experience (been there 4 times).
2)You dont have to work if you dont want to. The general idea is, that you can work should you need to support yourself instead of relying on savings. To prove this, in Oz and New Zealand, they dont enforce or even advise you apply for a bank acocunt or register for an IRD number (there version of National Insurance no.) - two critical things for working legally over there.
3)You dont have to keep travelling. You could spend all your time in one town,if you wanted (although itd be a bit of a waste!)
4)All the backpackers I stayed with in hostels that had been to Oz and NZ agreed we had the same easy experience applying for visa's, and entering the country. I often lived with various people who were completly skint and couldnt afford a ticket home. Their master plan was to keep breaking even on what they earn/living costs till there visa expires then get deported (and most likely banned from re-entering).
5)The recession just started to hit hard over there at the start of the year, however, there is always a demand for seasonal work like fruit picking, pruning, and packhouse work throughout their spring/summer/autumn.
6)Once in either NZ or Oz, its very easy to migrate to the other should you wish.

So Id say from experience, if you have some savings to live off until you find work, then go for it. Check out BASE and YHA backpackers - there dotted all over the place and are far,far superior/kitted out than the majority of rundown places,for the same money.:thumbsup:

Awesome deal, awesome experience.

Seems too much hassle to me. Also I know that 1 way tickets are usually more expensive than a return when booking to travel to America at least...

1. Get yourself a Working Holiday Visa
The £10 Pom fares are intended for people who are serious about having one hell of an adventure on a working holiday in Australia, so you will need to have a Working Holiday Visa to be eligible. You can apply for a visa at any of STA Travel’s 44 branches, or click here to buy it online.
Eligibility: You must be a UK passport holder aged between 18 and 30 years old inclusive.

A working holiday visa allows you to live and work in Australia for a period of 12 months. You can work for one employer for a maximum of 6 months, so it gives you time to travel around Australia topping up your funds as you go.

To make it even easier for you to get your working holiday visa sorted in time we'll also be sending our Mobile Visa Van around the country throughout July. The details are:

Friday 3rd July - various London locations
Saturday 4th July - Brighton (East Street Bastison)
Monday 6th July - Canterbury: St Georges Street (High Street)
Tuesday (morning) 7th July - Reading (Broad Street)
Wednesday (morning) 8th July - Cardiff (Cathedral Road or Westgate Street)
Wednesday (afternoon) 8th July - Bath & Bristol
Thursday 9th July - Birmingham
Friday 10th July - Norwich (The Forum)
Saturday 11th July - Oxford (Cornmarket)
Monday 13th July - Newcastle
Tuesday 14th July - Glasgow
Wednesday 15th July - Cambridge
Thursday 16th July - Exeter
Friday 17th July - Nottingham (Victoria Centre)
Saturday 25th July - Sheffield

Wave if you see us driving by!

Yeah ok whatever you say, even though my friend got one just fine when he didn't even have a few hundred in his bank. And before you sy no he didn't, errr yes he did I went with him and he got let into the country just fine.


no need to be a jackass, but im afraid you are wrong. Unless things have changed very recently, the terms and conditions are that "UPON ENTRY INTO THE COUNTRY" you must have atleast x amount of funds, this is to make sure you aren't just going to do what one person said happens and hang around in the country with no money and not leave, the funds proves you can support yourself if you cant find any work straight away and that if you have that amount of money theres a decent chance you will be able to afford a flight home when you you come to leave.

But as i said it is rarely enforced, but thats not to say it isnt enforced at all so i wouldnt just assume people never get stopped at immigration. In New York i was taken aside and asked all about my profession, how much money i currently had, how i was planning to leave the country etc, and again when i was checking in for my flight to NZ, i was asked to show my flight out of the country which i didnt have. However i had a working visa which was satisfactory enough. So i wouldnt be naive enough to just assume these checks are never put into place because if you are unlucky enough to be asked to produce said documents the excuse of "some moron on hotukdeals said his friend didnt need them" probably isnt going to hold up.
