HELPFUL TIPS TO GET BY AND WORK IN IBIZA

Accommodation?

First of all Stop worrying - Generally 90% of the time you won't get accommodation till you get to Ibiza, So it would be advisable to book in to a hotel/ hostel for a few weeks while you find the right accommodation. You need to see for yourself where you are living and also find the right people to live with - Booking a week or two holiday can be a good way to get yourself settled and gives you some breathing time to find some more permanent accommodation. Yes it can be hard work finding accommodation if you are lazy and don't bother looking, but make it your main and first priority when you get here!!! On the reverse side you may lose some money if you find accommodation quickly! But better to be safe than sorry.



There are plenty of accommodation outlets  but please feel free to visit this shop -The Ibiza Property Shop http://www.ibizaproperty.com Next to Club Sandwich and near the stadium and Bus depo... they are the NO 1 Worker outlets for accommodation with highly trained staff to accommodate your needs and desires .

• WARNING - Finding the wrong people to live with can ruin your summer
• REMEMBER - You will need a Bond and at least 1 months' rent up front and you can pay between 200 and 450 a month for rent - You will more than likely be sharing with other people in rooms unless you can pay extra for you own.

When to come to the isle?

Two scenarios going early 1st weeks in May you get to meet everyone but the resort is quiet and jobs are little at this time! The job start coming from the 3 4 weeks into May and really kick in June when the Clubs and Promoters start! If you are coming early make sure you have a reasonable amount of money saved up /£ 1500 - 2000! Start enquiring now but realistically you won't get your accommodation till you are here.

• WARNING - Dont Spend your money all at once or you may find yourself skint too soon without a job
• REMEMBER your are there all season so don't go exhaust yourself out too soon like many workers have in the past.

Sole Survivor or coming on the mass and meeting new people?

On your own with 1 other person in a group its really doesn't matter Ibiza is welcoming and one big family, you come on your own you will meet people straight away - go to Viva Ibiza Official number 1 workers Bar, pop into "The Zone" and meet new workers and chat to our staff who can put you in touch with other people coming on there own and also get chatting on forums to meet people when your here, Also open days and interview days can also be a good way to meet people as well as find that all important jobs to meet like minded people.
