Email us Email isn't as fast as the telephone but our customer service team monitor this during business hours.
@NomadsHelp Twitter on your phone is particularly good if you are able to access WiFi and is monitored during business hours.
Facebook Many of our travellers are on Facebook and so are we. If you have WiFi access, you can always ask for help on our Facebook page which is monitored during business hours. (Monday - Friday 8am - 8pm and on Weekends 10am - 2pm AEST).
