New job....advice


#21

Thanks for all the advice.

I am in the fortunate position where I can have both a British and Irish passport so crossing the border / crossing the EU is not really an issue.

Think I’m going to go for the job. Hopefully the big bad Brexit won’t cause too much damage!

Go for it.

Truth is everyone is giving their views (me included) on the basis of little certainty and some conjecture.

Best of luck!

Not legally. Airlines require various things (some passports) but no need to:

No passport needed: http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/moving_country/moving_abroad/freedom_of_movement_within_the_eu/common_travel_area_between_ireland_and_the_uk.html

Even a bus pass is enough: https://www.aerlingus.com/travel-information/passports-and-visas/travel-to-from-britain/

To get from the EU to Ireland though, you will show a passport or some form of ID - simply because it’s an island.

Travelling to ANY other EU country is not this easy. There is nothing that will change. I will bet good money on it.

Quick question to gather a couple of opinions. I am an extreme pro-Monzoer and wish I could do all this through Monzo but they seem to be a little bit away from the currency exchange functionality. So…

Transferwise seems to charge 0.3% per transaction.

Revolut seems to be free up to £5000 a month.

In your experience does Transferwise have better exchange rates or why would Revolut not be everyone’s preferred choice? Maybe I am missing something in the small print.

(assuming for this particular issue all exchanges will be less than £5000 per month so don’t need to worry about bigger transfers)
