    I cannot begin to rave about Britbound enough!!!!! They are simply the best, and provides you with a carefree and blissfully smooth transition into London life! Having never travelled solo before, never mind relocating to another country, my nerves & apprehension as to what to expect and how I'd cope were immense! How silly in hindsight, as from day one at my arrival meeting, I met and began wonderful friendships with the amazing team, as well as meeting a few people I now count as my best friends! The beauty of it, is that throughout the weekly drink catch ups they arrange, day tours, Topdeck tour assistance, and random get togethers (like VIP seating at pubs to watch rugby), you continue to not only expand your growing social circle, but also swap stories & tips for various London living factors, and the ever busy Facebook social page means that there is ALWAYS something appearing on your phone home screen :) If you are wanting to make the move, dont even second guess this decision.... I can tell you without a moments doubt that I never would have my found my London experience to be a fraction of how great its been, without this wonderful organisation, the people who run & work for it, and the group of people apart of it, whom you affectionately come to know as your fellow Britbounders & mates! :) The only downside you may ask...? Lol, just prepare your livers..... The beers ciders and wine are always flowing, and I mean flowing, so brace yourself! Happy London living to you all, you are in excellent hands!

    BritBound has been my family away from home!!! They were always there to support me through every step of my journey - the staff are awesome! The arrival party has so much useful info and I made so many new friends there and through their events. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone moving to London!

    I just can say, that I am so glad, to have Britbound with me for this adventure here in London. They enabled me to find accomodation and work, and completed appointments for a British Bankaccount and the National Insurance Number for me. This was such an important step, that I could never do without their help. But apart from all these procedures that you need to start a life in the UK, they have always an open ear for me, whenever I need to talk about things that bothered me. They welcomed me so warm and friendly and when I now visit team in the base, it feels like visiting family. I recommend traveling with BritBound, it is so worth it. Especially for people not coming from Europe it is a good choice, you will see a lot oft he UK and Europe trough them. But even for european citizens it is worth it, you will meet so many great people from all over the world and can be at so many awesome places in this time. Life is sometimes hard here in London, but you will definitely don´t have to face the problems alone. Ich kann nur sagen, dass ich sehr froh darüber bin, dieses Abenteuer hier in London mit BritBound erleben zu können. Sie haben es mir ermöglicht, eine Unterkunft und Arbeit zu finden und haben die Termine für das britische Bankkonto und die Versicherungs-Nummer für mich abgeschlossen. Diesen wichtigen Schritt hätte ich ohne ihre Hilfe nicht machen können. Aber abgesehen von diesen Verfahren, die benötigt werden, um im Vereinigten Königreich leben zu können, hatten sie immer ein offenes Ohr für mich, wenn ich über Dinge reden musste, die mich bedrückten. Ich wurde so warm und freundlich begrüßt hier, und wenn ich das Team nun in der Base treffe, fühlt es sich an, als würde ich hier auf Familie treffen. Ich empfehle das Reisen mit BritBound, es ist es auf jeden Fall wert. Vor allem für Leute, die nicht aus Europa kommen, ist es eine gute Wahl, da man mit ihnen sehr viel von ganz Europa zu sehen bekommt. Aber auch für Europäer macht BritBound Sinn, denn man trifft so viele tolle Menschen von der ganzen Welt und kann so viele Orte sehen. Auch wenn das Leben in London manchmal hart ist, man muss seine Probleme nicht allein bewältigen.

    The services on offer (bank account, NI number, etc) are all easy to do on your own. The staff try, but they are quite disorganised/unprofessional and the 'community' is only as good as the people currently in it. You'll make better friends, etc through other (often free) London social groups. Don't waste your money unless you're really young.

    I would recommend BritBound to anyone and everyone I know coming over here. They ease the process in ways that cannot even be described. Thanks, BritBound for making this move as easy and comfortable as it has been, without you I think I would be in a very different position! Laura A – Canadian – Telemarketing Consultant

    It was so nice getting off a long haul flight knowing i had a ride from the airport to my hostel. It was a flawless transition and BritBound were with me every step of the way, whatever i needed i could call or email (which was a few times :) I had everything ready before i left thanks to them and felt fully prepared. When i made it to London i was welcomed at the base like a member of family and instantly made friends at the friday night drinks where i found people in the same situation as me. BritBound not only prepared me to get to the UK they also continuously helped every step of the way after. Within my first month of being in London i had a job, flat, bank account, national insurance number, flights around europe booked and mates to share it with. Thanks BritBound xo

    I had no idea the extent of how much BritBound would help…. Majority of my friends in London were met through BritBound. Truly don't know what I would have done without them! Demie M – Australian
