Send My Bag explores the reasons to move to Australia, in a bid to explain why 189,700 people decided to move there in 2016-17. Currently over 28% of the population of Australia has been born overseas, with 5% being born in the UK. So what is it that makes Australia such an attractive destination for expats, and for Brits in particular? Why move to Australia?
When moving to the UK to work or study, there are a number of things that you must be aware of. These include your right to reside, work or study in the UK, travel options, potential accommodation and your right to avail of public services in the UK.
The effect of Brexit on EU students wishing to study in the UK, as well as UK students hoping to study in the EU could be highly detrimental. The UK’s recent vote to leave the EU would seem to be at odds with the will of most university students. An exit poll conducted by YouGov suggests that 75% of 18 to 24 year olds voted for the UK to remain in the EU – the largest percentage of any age group. It is not just students themselves that have reservations about Brexit, but also those running the UK’s higher education institutions.
I was surprised to read headlines yesterday (3rd June , 2016) regarding Ryanair’s reduction in baggage fees, apparently fees would now be lower for 92% of customers, including a huge 17% saving on flighst of 3 hours of less – wow, how nice have Ryanair become! Unfortunately for passengers however it would appear Ryanair HQ either don’t own (famously tight) or know how to operate a calculator.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently released new guidelines for carry-on luggage, which will see the recommended allowable dimensions reduced to 55 cm x 35 cm x 19 cm. This is considerably smaller than the current standard allowance of 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm. If these guidelines come into play, it will become increasingly difficult for passengers to pack what they need for even a few days away. Many will once again have to check in their baggage. This means that travellers will be forced to pay checked baggage fees and will be at risk of incurring extortionate excess baggage fees. Only time will tell what level of confusion and extra cost to the traveller these new guidelines will cause.
We don't sell cardboard boxes but the 457mm x 457mm x 457mm boxes available here are the best value we've seen and the size is perfect for our service. The pack includes 15 boxes and delivery for under £25. 15 boxes may be a lot but we recommend sharing or giving away what you don't need, the other packs we found which included less boxes were the same price.
