Travelbud has been absolutely amazing in assisting me with my move abroad, doing my TEFL/TESOL course as well as helping me get placed at a school.
The staff have been incredibly helpful and friendly, and they’ve truly gone out of their way to make sure that I understood and felt comfortable with the entire process of moving to and teaching in Thailand. It was one of the best decisions to go through this process with them!Lisa-Jo Snyman, Thailand
Travelbud helped me to find a job in Korea and put me in touch with all the right people. I would highly recommend someone going to teach in Korea for the first time using their services. When I first decided to go to Korea I had no idea of what I would have to do to get there.
Travelbud assisted me in finding a job and were always helpful when I had queries or issues about working in Korea.Dominic Valentine, South Korea
Travelbud has made a nerve-racking decision to move from a tiny town to the other side of the world, the easiest thing to do. The team has been there every step of the way and assisted me with everything including my visa application, resume and flights, amongst many other things.
The team is extremely efficient and every query and question (even the silly ones) are always answered within seconds, literally. I am so excited for my upcoming travels and I feel safe and confident because I know that if I need a little help or guidance that Travelbud will only be a phone call, text message or email away. Thanks guys, you are the best!Natalie Marais, Thailand
In months before my departure my agency TravelBud has been offered amazing assistance in getting me prepared and keeping me informed. All things from funding, what to pack, how to address the locals was explained to me thoroughly. The level of support from you guys has been so pivotal in getting me excited to come to Thailand to teach simply because I was kept in the loop for all things concerning my trip.
Overall I’ve had a great service experience from TravelBud and more so I’ve received a great support system that I know will continue well within my time here in Thailand.Khensi Maluleka, Thailand
