    How do I join in Word Nomads

    Hi Kada, Hope you're well. Are you asking about joining our community or about purchasing travel insurance? Unfortunately we don't currently sell insurance in Algeria, so you won't find this in the drop-down menus on our site. That being said, if you just wanted to sign up for our newsletter or perhaps a travel scholarship you can still do this. If Algeria isn't shown in the form then just select somewhere in the same timezone. Any questions let me know, Pearse World Nomads over 1 year ago

    Do I need proof of exit to enter Mexico?

    Hey Nat, As Doug says, you don't need proof of exit when you enter. I was there last September and he's got the process pretty well described. Cheers, Pearse over 2 years ago

    I will commuting around Sydney, is the Opal Card available in the airport?

    Hi Wanderluster, From looking at the opal retailer site both the Domestic & International airports in Sydney have an opal card retailer. If you want to have a look yourself search 'Mascot' (airport suburb) on this site then look at the ones around the terminals; http://www.retailers.opal.com.au. Otherwise I'm sure you can ask someone when you get there. Hope that helps! Pearse - World Nomads almost 4 years ago

    Best/cheapest place to go snowboarding near Queenstown in July (Beginners)

    Hey Milly, There are two main ranges, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables. When we went we used a Queestown superpass (http://www.skiexpress.com.au/shop/queenstown-superpass-adult/) which was the cheapest option, also good because days are flexible and non-consecutive (I'd double check this/prices as it's been 2 years). The whole town will be in snow-mode and there's a gear shop or two there where you can rent per day, can't remember prices but wasn't crazy $$. I'm fairly sure all accommodation providers will be able to offer a free shuttle to either range, the Remarkables are a bit further away but their green run is much longer (I was a beginner and preferred them > Coronet). Snow was off and on, it's a bit rainy at that time so that's your main concern, I think out of the 5 days we were there 1 of them we called off due to weather. Hope that helps!

    how much money per day should I budget for Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos?

    Hi Jessica, Of course it depends on what you're doing and what kind of accommodation you're staying in, but in general I would plan for US $50 per day for all expenses (activities, transport, accom etc.). Some days you'll be hard pressed to spend more than $30, especially in Laos as it's quite a bit cheaper than the other two. Hope that helps! Pearse about 3 years ago

    What is the best travel destination this 2016?

    "Best" is such a hard criteria to justify! Personally I'd love to go to Cuba before the US Embargo is fully lifted (they've been loosening restrictions for years now). You never know what changes that might bring to the country and culture so I think it'd be great to experience it before the impacts are fully realised. Just my opinion though!

    Transit pass for Tokyo layover

    Hi Pat, Is that just for the train to/from the airport during a layover? If that's the case it's probably cheaper to just buy tickets as you go. You can also get a 24 hr one day rail pass for 600 yen if you wanted: http://www.tokyometro.jp/en/ticket/value/1day/ but I don't think that would include the JR lines. over 3 years ago
