FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What about employment & accommodation?
Employment / Accommodation
The Kickstart Package is only recommended for those who already have employment and accommodation set up pre-departure. Employment and housing can be extremely difficult to secure on arrival (particularly in Ski/Resort Towns) and is highly recommended to secure prior to leaving your home country to save major headaches and a small fortune. If you do not have these already set up we recommend you check out our other products which includes housing or full housing assistance. You can check these out HERE
Do I need travel insurance?
It is important to note that as a condition of the Canadian Working Holiday Visa that you must have health (travel) insurance for the entirety of your stay in Canada. TWHC has teamed up with Allianz Global to offer some extremely cheap yet comprehensive travel insurance options for our participants.
We have also been able to get an exclusive 24 month travel insurance option – ask your TWHC specialist about it on your consultation call.
