Preview & Orientation Trips
All our consultants are passionate about their locations. Their local knowledge combined with a breadth of experience helping people on the move, gives them unique insight into how to get things done in their countries. This trip is tailored to meet your needs and specific interests, as well as any questions you may have regarding housing, education, communities and lifestyle preferences.
Our consultants will create a fully accompanied tailor-made preview trip; each one a positive, in-depth introduction to any location; addressing all specific concerns, ensuring the visit is effective and objective.
We’ll impartially explain the options available advising on different residential areas, community facilities, safety and entertainment—keeping in mind varying needs. We are prominent in local housing markets and able to negotiate favorable contract terms, as well as coordinate all the formalities in securing a new home. Our home search service can include:
- Our tour of residential areas customised to your lifestyle and budget
- Inspection of shortlisted properties
- Assistance with understanding the lease and property condition report
- Assistance with property handover and moving
If your children are happy, you're happier. And there’s nothing more likely to influence a child's happiness than a great experience at school. We provide local advice on schooling for every age, including day care and pre-schools.
Most major destinations provide a good mix of schools, international, private and public. We help you easily compare each school’s curriculum, entrance requirements, and application procedures. This gives a flavor for each establishment and the options that are available to really help focus your selection.
We can also arrange for school visits and accompany families where necessary. We help coordinate the admissions process, acting as a go-between and keeping everyone informed of the application's status.
Our intercultural training helps families settle into their new location smoothly. The confidence gained from learning how to communicate, and the satisfaction of integrating into the local culture, ensures a positive foreign experience and better integration.
Intercultural services also cover repatriation—often more challenging—which helps those families who decide to permanently return to their original location.
Our programs are tailored to individual needs: initial cultural readiness check, identifying specific requirements and building an action plan for further cultural development.
Improved fluency will give you the confidence in both business and social situations. We offer a range of language courses, both in groups and one-to-one, specifically tailored for ability and needs of any of the family members. This training can also be used in conjunction with our Intercultural Training, giving you a comprehensive cultural and language package.
Partner Support Program
Crown consultants help partners navigate the complexities of maintaining current professional skills and build new ones. Where employment is not an option, consultants will guide the partner toward new personal goals. This program also provides the platform to focus on one aspect of a professional or chosen personal goal or cover four different topics of importance.
