What do I need to know before moving to Warwick?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Warwick, they said...

"Warwick is a beautiful parish known for its stunning beaches, lush landscapes, and friendly locals. Before moving, expats should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, the cost of living in Warwick, like the rest of Bermuda, is quite high. This includes housing, groceries, utilities, and other daily expenses. It's important to budget accordingly and be prepared for these costs. The official language in Bermuda is English, so communication should not be a problem for English-speaking expats. However, Bermudians have their own accent and some unique slang, so it might take some time to get used to it. Bermuda has a subtropical climate, so the weather in Warwick is generally warm and humid, with mild winters and hot summers. It's also important to note that Bermuda is prone to hurricanes, particularly between June and November. Public transportation in Bermuda is reliable and efficient, with a network of buses and ferries connecting different parts of the island. However, owning a car can be expensive due to high import duties and restrictions on car ownership. Healthcare in Bermuda is of a high standard, but it can be expensive. It's advisable to have comprehensive health insurance to cover any medical costs. Bermuda has a strong economy, largely driven by insurance and reinsurance, tourism, and international business. Job opportunities for expats may be available in these sectors, but work permits are required. Bermuda's education system is based on the British model, and there are a number of good public and private schools in Warwick and across the island. However, school fees can be high at private institutions. Bermuda has a low crime rate, but like any place, it's advisable to take standard precautions to ensure personal safety. Finally, Bermudians are known for their hospitality and friendliness. Embracing the local culture, participating in community events, and getting to know the locals can greatly enhance the expat experience in Warwick, Bermuda," remarked another expat in Warwick, Bermuda.
