Introducing... City Relocation Guides

Every year, thousands of people relocate abroad for student exchanges, projects and internships. And whilst living in a new country is one of the best experiences ever, it can be pretty confusing in the first few weeks. We know, because we've been there. Hunting out a place to rent, arranging visas, bank accounts and trying to figure out exactly what an Oyster card is.

So, we've decided to build a section of Flat-Club dedicated to those people moving abroad for the first time, whether they're moving short or long-term. Today sees the first of a series of posts, giving you the tips and tricks we wish we'd known when we first came to London. And with Flat-Club members all round the world, we'll also be featuring relocation guides for New York, Paris, Chicago and many more. Guides written by the people that live there.

Feel free to contribute your own advice and tell us about the things you wish you'd known when you relocated to a new city. We'll constantly be adding to the guides and relocation section of the website so that all your contributions can feature to make the Flat-Club Relocation Guides the most helpful and complete ones yet!
