Understanding your transport options is an important concept when you arrive in a new place. Whether it is getting to university or exploring your city’s neighbourhoods, make sure you know all of your options.


Buying a bicycle is a great investment and an excellent way to save money as a student, not only will it get you from A to B for free, but it will keep you fit and healthy too! When buying a bike you need to think about its purpose, as there are different types of bike frames and wheels to cater for different riding preferences.


Buying a car in a new country can appear daunting at first, but it’s really not the minefield it may seem, all it takes is a bit of prior research. First up, think about the kind of car you’re after and decide whether to buy new or used. If you’re buying a used car, you’ll also need to consider whether to buy from a dealer or a private seller. Then you’ll need to register the vehicle and get it insured, and of course educate yourself on Australian road rules, which vary state to state.
