Thanks for the support but anyway, once the email comes, I'm sorted, hey Galwaygal, sounds like you have it planned out very well, mine consists only of, fly, get job, start making money, make up rest..... Maybe I should be taking a leaf out of your book?

LOL funny i got in trouble on here before for saying they ripped me off but i agree with you. that company saw my post and emailed Dave who runs this site to say I was giving them a bad name so now I will just not mention their name anymore. But I support u on this

maybe they should spend more time helping there customers out with their applications process than reading our posts!!

hey, 1841.00 for flight, insurance and the 399 you pay the first day! it was 1482 but cause i to change my flights i got charged 359 for a free change of date!! its a total rip off, they charge what they want and dont help wish i had stayed away from them!! what was you 2260 for?

2260 was flights and travel only!!! We will have to change the return flight date so i suppose that'll cost us more too...we paid the 399 on top of the 2260....What a joke.....

how many of ye are going? if it is 2260 each its mental money!! They do what they want, i thought 100 to change a flight was crazy but when i had to, 359 was what i got, i had rang to get them changed and was told the date i wanted wasnt available, so that must have been a free move, i got 24 which was 300 and when i rang back to book it, guess what it just happen to be gone! who are they kidding, im so tired of forking out all this money that i dont have on something that still hasnt materialised!! :-( 8-12 weeks who are they kidding!!

Wanna hear something funny? I change my flights at a cost of €80, from a 9.50a.m. Today to the24th of this month cause there was no sign of the visa, 1 a.m. This morning then, visa comes through, happy to get it, but have to say, the fun is completely taken out of it, here's my timescale so far then, after 2 flight changes and a nearly 13 week process:

9th Jan-posted (regular mail)
20th Feb-notice of receipt e-mail receipt
8th march-payment request
9th march-payment sent
28th march- requesting further payment email received
28th march-emailed the SP reference number
29th march-received payment confirmation
14th april-received loi email


Was it just me or did anyone else's loi have no information on it about them? Its just a generic form with nothing relating to me on it?
