Hey. i have been currently living in sweden for around 10months working and having a great time!
i am going to embrace this summer and then plan my way back to australia. but unfortunately i cannot pay for things online due to not having a secure code generator. therefor when i go to book things it wont let me. so i dont have to get one sent over here from aus, i am curious if anyone knows of good travel agents where you can pay in person? there are sites like sky scanner and ryan air who have really cheap flights. so hopefully a good travel agent would just book with them and not put on too much of a fee. excuse my foolishness i havent traveled much at all.

i hope you can assist me with some good travel agents (prefferably in sthlm)

thanks! smile.gif

You don't have "secure code generator" - I presume you mean you don't have internet banking. If you are working and are presumably paid for your work and presumably have a bank account, why don't you request visa debit card and just use that card to pay for all your online bookings?

STA Travel at the bottom of Sveavägen. I used them 18 months ago for a multi stop return ticket to Australia, they were as good as any travel agent in the UK. Although I do usually book online these days it seemed better for the multi stop part. Not sure why you can't just use your debit card online though, surely that would be easiest?

thank you two! i will check them out, sta seems good i will check this out! i am wanting to do exactly that, multi stop overs etc.

i cannot use my card online because i need a security code generator. most sites dont accept payments without this code these days. i cannot get one because i need internet banking, and to get this i need a personummer, which i dont have... yet! applied over 6 months ago and havent heard back. when i contact migrationsverket i get nothing resolved either, they say its 'in the process'...

thanks again smile.gif
