Trip overview

Uncover what it’s like to live like a local on our Working Holiday in the UK trip. Explore an exhilarating world of opportunities and British experiences, with the security of a local income to fund your trip. Immerse yourself in the buzz surrounding UK's bustling cityscapes, lush countryside and rich heritage, with a line-up of world-class summer festivals and bucket list-worthy attractions to keep you entertained. Plus, all of Europe is literally on your doorstep!

We offer the complete package and, most importantly, score you job interviews with awesome local businesses so you can stay longer and fund all your European adventures! Our in-country team will help you get set up with everything you need to kickstart this new exciting adventure. From working holiday visa application advice, transfers and accommodation, local experiences, a UK local bank account and mobile number, and so much more, we’ve got you covered.

We know that one of the elements of a successful working holiday is to find local, seasonal employment to use as a means to fund your travels around the country. We also know that only certain businesses and industries will even consider hiring a traveller. We develop and maintain partnerships with hundreds of local businesses that do hire travellers, so you can save yourself time, money and stress with our Guaranteed Interview Before Arrival* and Unlimited Extra Interviews* to make your working holiday the best experience it can be.

Thrive in London’s metropolis full of live music, bustling nightlife and sporting hype, relish in the beauty of Scotland’s quaint seaside towns or be charmed by the history of Wales’ rustic castles and cathedrals. Whichever journey you choose, you’ll have the chance to make lifelong friends and break away from your usual routine back home. Take full advantage of weekend getaways in Europe and the freedom to travel as far and wide as you want between jobs. This trip is perfect for those who dream of being more than the average tourist and adventure for longer.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.


Trip details

Our Working Holiday in the UK trip is designed to get you set up abroad as quickly and safely as possible. Our expert team offer assistance with all those stressful essentials you need to get set up overseas, like visa applications, bank accounts, UK job interviews and help finding the perfect place to live. Simple, we’re here to ensure your transition to working abroad in the UK is seamless.

Arrive in the country with the confidence that you are many steps ahead of every other traveller starting off on their working holiday in the UK journey. You’ll have more time to focus on you and planning your adventures around the UK! With the hard work already done, you can relax into your first few days in the UK, see the epic sights and meet new friends before starting your first job opportunity. Our local UK team will support you throughout the entire journey and when it’s time for something new, feel comfortable taking off and exploring the UK and the rest of Europe knowing we’ve got your back when you need your next job interview.

When you work in the UK, you become more than just a tourist. Spend more of your time soaking in the stunning scenery, partying at festivals and country-hopping around Europe rather than sweating the logistical stuff. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! You can only get the UK working holiday visa once, so make your time count. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and work in the UK and there will be plenty of ‘pinch me, I’m really here’ moments along the way.

Requirements

To qualify for this trip you must meet the visa requirements, and have 6 months of paid work experience by time of arrival.

What extra costs will I have?

Flights, travel insurance, visa, immigration healthcare surcharge, criminal background check, souvenirs & spending money.


Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure and you can do it however you please. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days:

Day 1

Once you’ve touched down at Heathrow you’ll be transferred in style to London city by your private chauffeur! Don’t worry if you arrive at Gatwick, we’ll provide an express train transfer to central London instead. You’ll arrive at your initial accommodation at a top-rated hostel in the heart of the action where we’ll cover the first 4 nights for you. Relax, make some new friends and settle in!

Trip location

Arrive in London so you can attend your orientation and get to know our local team at our Central London office. After that, you’re free to roam as you please!

Vedrana has been very helpful and has given useful information about how things operate. She has gone out of her way to make sure everything runs smoothly, has been contactable from the first moment, and been a warm person to be with during the orientation.
