What do I need to know before moving to Paget?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Paget, they said:

"Paget is a picturesque parish known for its beautiful beaches, lush gardens, and historic sites. Before moving to Paget, expats should be aware that the cost of living is quite high, with housing, groceries, and other essentials often costing more than in other countries. English is the official language in Bermuda, but the local accent can sometimes be difficult to understand. The currency used is the Bermuda dollar, which is pegged to the US dollar, and both currencies are accepted everywhere. Bermuda has a subtropical climate, so it's important to be prepared for hot, humid summers and mild winters. Hurricanes can occur between June and November, so it's essential to have a plan in place for these events. Public transportation in Bermuda is reliable, with buses and ferries being the primary modes of transport. However, owning a car can be expensive and is subject to certain restrictions. Healthcare in Bermuda is of a high standard but can be expensive, so it's recommended to have comprehensive health insurance. Bermuda has a strong sense of community, and locals are generally friendly and welcoming. However, it's important to respect local customs and traditions. The job market in Bermuda is competitive, and work permits are required for non-Bermudians. The main industries are tourism, international business, and insurance and reinsurance. Bermuda has a high standard of education, with both public and private schools available. However, spaces in schools can be limited, so it's advisable to arrange schooling well in advance. Finally, Bermuda has strict laws on bringing pets into the country, so if you're planning on bringing a pet, you'll need to ensure you meet all the necessary requirements," explained one expat living in Paget, Bermuda.
