  1. Research the average cost of living in the country you plan to move to and save up. It may be recommended to change the currency of your savings in advance to prevent any future problems.
  2. Sort out your accommodation before you move if you can, whether it’s a place you’ll rent, family or friend you’ll stay with, or a house you’ll buy. Don’t risk being homeless!
  3. When deciding on accommodation, make sure to research the area as much as possible to be certain that it is a safe area, it is near amenities, it is not too far from your work, and, if you have children, it is near a good school that they can go to.

  1. Don’t try to fit your house and life in a suitcase. Declutter first, pack your things for moving abroad, and then arrange for a moving company that you know to be reliable, to ship your items to the country you are moving to. It is important it has good reviews as items going missing, shipping not arriving, or arriving damaged, are common stories.
  2. Lastly, organise your bills before you move so that you have heating, electricity, water and internet as soon as you move in. If you are moving to Ireland, contact Vodafone Store Ireland by visiting kingcommunications.ie/ to sort out an internet or broadband plan.
