Re: One way travel Insurance - Aus to UK

Re: Baby with Aus passport only

I had ended up sending it off but it was all back within 2 weeks anyway. Great service - compared to the pathetic process and astronomical cost they force on you in Australia anyway.

Re: Moving back to UK from oz. where to start?

We've had some quotes in for around $5000 for a shared container - our stuff is about 14ft in total - mostly boxes, some furniture and camping gear.

Re: Job Offer in Sydney Australia

Spot on.

We moan about the cost of living and rental costs here for bang ordinary places (but near the beach). But ultimately for most it's family that draws you home.

Baby with Aus passport only

Can't quite seem to find a definitive answer on this one so thought I'd throw it out.
