    They won't pay anything towards transportation costs?

    You may want to be careful with your flight dates. That is coming close to Memorial Day in the US so flights could be higher.... how early can you arrive?

    They made it clear from the start that we pay for our travel, we get really cheap accommodation and other stuff that they pay for but we have to cover our flights :yes:

    I have to arrive on the 24th of May for the sake of my visa I think :yes:

    That's cool that they were upfront about it. And I just checked, Memorial Day is May 30th so you should be fine :yes:

    I'm super excited :mental: For an extra £100 I can go on a direct flight rather than stopping over but I'm not 100% its worth it as that £100 would just about cover my travel insurance

    Me too! It's so exciting thinking of actually being a CM! I know the work will be really hard but I'll get to spend the whole summer in Florida!! :wiggle:

    Is it cheaper to book flights in advanced or wait until closer to the time? I've heard that VA have sales on Christmas day?

    I'm only needing flights Mick so I don't think a travel agent will be very cheap :unsure: I'll have a look though thanks for the link :)

    I think I'm going to book towards the beginning of Jan :yes:
