Travelling overseas can be expensive, however, there are some great financial assistance options to help. It is very important to think about how much the experience is going to cost and how much money you will have available. This allows you to better plan what experience you can afford and ensure you have enough to last the entire time you are away! Check out our Money Matters section on the Portal.
