New Platinum Card partner - Sky Dive the Beach at Sydney, Byron Bay and Melbourne!

You don't have to be crazy to do this but
 - no, in fact you probably do!

Working holidays are all about trying new things, living life on the edge and discovering your own limits. While the more depraved among you could take that to mean see how many never-before-tried drinks you can mix while lying on the beach waiting for the tide to come in.

OR, you could be truly daring with our all new partner: Skydive the Beach!

We at the Visa Bureau are delighted to announce our newly formed partnership with New South Wales’ biggest and best skydiving operator Skydive the Beach!

As part of our new partnership, all Visa Bureau Platinum Card holders will receive $30 off a 14,000 ft tandem skydive at three of Sky Dive the Beach’s locations across Australia PLUS a free Skydive the Beach t-shirt to remember your experience!

What is this ‘sky dive’ you speak of?

Basically it involves lots of guts, some very secure straps, a couple of very experienced instructors and about three bedsheets’ worth of material.

Oh, and a plane, which you jump out of, at 14,000 feet.

You can choose to jump over the stunning North Wollongong beach at the original Skydive the Beach Sydney or over the opalescent Byron Bay and Ballina at Skydive the Beach Byron Bay.

Skydive the Beach might be the biggest name in skydiving in NSW but the guys are so popular, they're making waves in Victoria too. Skydive the Beach Melbourne offers adrenaline seekers the chance to arrive on the Moran Reserve which is just east of the hideously cool St Kilda beach.

And why would I want to do this?

To find out what you’re made of! To do something you’ll never forget! To feel what it’s like to fly! To see if you can keep your breakfast down at a million miles per hour! To tell your mum what you’ve done and watch her reaction!

Why WOULDN’T you want to do this should be the question.

I am now officially convinced, where do I sign up and how do I get my discount (and free t-shirt)?

You can claim your discount at three of the five Skydive the Beach locations (we’re working on the other two):

Just show your Platinum Card on the day of your skydive or booking or, if you’re booking over the phone, mention you have a card and then scan or fax a copy over for confirmation – that’s it!
