I have a big problem as it’s a real emergency and I hope that someone will be able to help me to get back home. I’m an Australian citizen who was born in Poland, but I have been living all my life in Australia. Basically, my situations is this, I am currently on a holiday trip in Turkey, but things have gone wrong during my stay here, as my belonging like cash and cards have been stolen from me. Unfortunately, I didn’t buy any return ticket back to Cairns as I wasn’t sure how many more days I would be staying here, in Antalya. Now I am basically forced to stay here until I collect enough money for my flight back home.
I have even called the Australian Embassy in Ankara for help and guidance, but they only offered me a $100 Emergency pocket money and no help of funding my flight ticket! So not much help there.
If anyone can help me to collect enough money for my trip back home, I would really appreciate it! If necessary, we can even come to an agreement that i pay this money back, once I get back to Australia. Now I am staying in a cheap hotel with the last money I have, which will support my accommodation and food for about another 10 days and then I will be completely without money.
I have found about three different flight options, which would be the cheapest. There is a flight from Istanbul to Dubai – Brisbane – Cairns, or Istanbul to Abu Dhabi – Brisbane – Cairns, or Istanbul to Singapore – Brisbane – Cairns, that’s the cheapest I could find.
Thank you for all your support out there and understanding!
