Although it sounds unusual, it is appropriate to announce your departure to your bank. Do not leave a preventive examination by a dentist or another physician to the last moment.

Our recommendation is based on the experience we have in finding jobs in England. Although it sounds unusual, it is appropriate to announce your departure to your bank. Part of your credit card can be a travel insurance you have forgotten about a long ago. In some cases it happens that the protective system of bank cards evaluates card transaction in a foreign country as „unusual“ and your card can be blocked. The result is that you will not get any money from the ATM and not be able to pay in stores. Under these circumstances, you need to contact your bank and report this fact. It does not happen often, but it is a very unpleasant thing that can get expensive due to expensive international phone calls.

If you travel from Great Britain only on holiday, it is also appropriate to announce your movement to local bank. Some banks offer this option directly in their Internet banking.

For dealing with the post office you can choose a person to whom you entrust the power of attorney and thus the assumption of various important letters. Czech Post, however, does not pass the delivery intended into ones own hands, even based on the power of attorney. What is worth consideration is the redirection of all correspondence to another address, it goes up to CZK 200 per month.

Do not leave a preventive examination by a dentist or another physician to the last moment. Thus, you can prevent the postponing of your trip, because suddenly you suffer from toothaches and it is necessary to repeatedly visit a dentist. In Great Britain, there is also the state health system, but is takes much longer to get to a specialist, if it is not an acute intervention. Also language barrier and not knowing of the local environment may play a role.
