NEW ‘KIDS’ ON THE BLOG

We have some new members to welcome in our international traveller community! 

I’d like to introduce you to Sara, Marcel, Annina and Pia!

Marcel is here to participate in the Work and Travel Program and the three ladies are taking part in our Internship program, to collect some precious experiences for their further life. 

Annina isn’t new to Canada at all, she already spent a beautiful time at a horse ranch in Alberta. So now it’s just about the right time to move from the country side to the city life. I hope you like it just as much. 

Marcel, only arrived yesterday, but apparently a jet-lag isn’t a problem for this one. He’ll start his one year journey here in Vancouver, but who knows where the road will take him after that.  Loaded with all his skiing-equipment, he is ready for the snow to arrive asap. 

Next up Pia. Pia mainly wants to meet great new people, luckily that’s exactly who we are, am I right? I am sure you are going to get to know so many great people at the upcoming events, that has been prepared to fulfill your dreams, of new international friends!

Last but not least – Sara. She is from Italy, but her native language is German. Why is that? I am sure she is happy to tell you at the upcoming PuB-Night! Her plan is to find a second home here in Vancouver and I am sure that’s what a lot of you experienced already. So don’t be shy and tell her about all the tricks of living in this beautiful place. 

 We are happy to welcome you to our group! 

See you tonight! 

Cheers,

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday – Tips for renting a car

Hey there,

Friday, the last day of the week so almost weekend!
Today I want to talk about renting a car in Canada. There are several option you might wanna know about! I discovered that there are a view things you should know before you rent one.

First of all you there are a lot of company’s around the Vancouver Airport area. Examples of these are Alamo, Budget, AVIS or Hertz.. It’s really easy to rent a car online from one of these companies. But, because of most of us are under the 25 you have to be aware of the age surcharge. This is a charge $25-30 each day you rent a car if you are under the 25 years old. Another thing is the damage collision waiver. If you do not select this extra insurance you are unprotected for accidents etc. This is also between the $25 dollars.

In other words, you have to expect a lot of extra costs on top of the price you see online. But to make it more easy Alamo has a special under age package. All the things I discussed above are included so you are fully protected. When you pick up the car you have to pay a full gastank and that’s it! If you do not have a lot of money this is the solution.

 
The other option for car rental is with one of the sharing car companies. The first one is Zipcar. This is a car sharing company that gives you temporary access to a car if you are +21. You can rent cars for $8 per hour (excl. yearly membership fee). All you need for this is a membership, your driver’s license and your driving record.

The second sharing car company called Car2Go. This is an easy option if you want to travel from point A to B. There is no return time or location. You look on the map, pick up the car, and when you’re done you can just park it within the home area of that car. Everything you need is included in one price, really easy!

This Sunday I have rented a small car via Alamo just for 1 day. It’s easy and close to Vancouver to make a daytrip to Whistler and the waterfalls!

Hope you have a great weekend as well,

Jelle

Casual Friday

Hey guys,

I was reading the newspaper today that the website Megaupload has been shut down by the U.S. government. MegaUpload is one of the world largest file-sharing site and several company executives where arrested on piracy charges. I feel that this will be just one of the first websites this is going happen to, and even more are coming unless we really protest and make sure the government does not inhabits us in our internet usage or threaten our prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression.

The SOPA & PIPA are just two of the bills racing through the American congress right now, but stay vigilant!!

Protest by clicking HERE !!!!

Furthermore I want to leave you guys on a more cheerful note., that’s why I have this video for you. Let’s hope we are able to enjoy youtube  and other websites for a long time 🙂

Watch the cards trick and listen to the story!!!

Have a nice weekend

Petra

The INTERNeX Website

As some of you may noticed our website is down. I made an announcement yesterday on our Facebook Page, hoping that the error is not to bad and that the site will be up and running soon. But I just talked to our provider and it seems that one of the server is broken and has to be replaced.

Fortunately our Emails are not effected and we can still receive Emails from you.

We are working hard to get the website up and running again and will stay in tough with you via our Blog, Facebook Page and of course Twitter.

Thanks for your understanding.
