Is Salzburg, Austria covered by any German mobile networks? If not, what phone contract is recommended for a Austria/Germany split Erasmus year?

0 answers

I'm spending half of my Erasmus year abroad in Salzburg and the other half in Munich. As I can't seem to find any 6 month contracts over there (I'd rather not have prepaid because I'll be using a lot of data), I'm going to have to get a 12 month contract, so was looking for one that covered both Salzburg and Munich, despite them being in different countries. As Salzburg is right on the German border, I thought maybe it would share German mobile networks, is this true?

How should I find accommodation in Sassari, Sardinia?

0 answers

Hi everyone, I have got an erasmus internship in Sassari, Sardinia, starting at the start of September. I am unsure of whether or not I need to find accommodation before I go, or if it will be ok to just turn up and find something when I get there. I have looked on easystanza.it and currently there are only 3 available rooms there, so I was also wondering where else I can look to find a room? Thank you!

What is the best way to transfer money from a UK bank account to an Austrian bank account?

0 answers

I am going on a year abroad to Vienna and I have already checked bank accounts there - I wish to open one up when I arrive there, as it also gives you a railcard and an ISIC card. However, I will need to transfer money from the UK to Austria, as my student loan and my EU funding will come in batches throughout the year. Is there a good way of transferring these funds from the UK to Austria without incurring extra costs?
