Health insurance is mandatory for all residents over the age of 18 and you must have health insurance in place within 4 months of arriving in the Netherlands. If you’re starting a new job your employer may be able to assist with health insurance and some companies offer family schemes to cover you and your family.
Cars are not king in the Netherlands, in most cases trams, buses and bicycles have strict right of way. Children under 1.35m must have an approved child seat, children under 3 years can only travel in the front if the air bag has been deactivated and they are in a rear facing child seat. On the whole the nation has a lower tolerance of cars, stricter fines are in place and your car can be confiscated for offences such as speeding.
You will need to exchange your UK license for a Dutch license. It’s not legal to use a UK license if you are living in Holland.
The Netherlands have excellent banking and many of the major international banks are represented there. In many cases, bank staff speak English (English is widely used in Holland, you’ll find English books in most book shops). You will need to set up direct debits to arrange most services and utilities but most suppliers are set up for internet banking and you can make most arrangements from a banking app on any smartphone or tablet. In general, having a Dutch based bank can be useful but is not as much of a requirement as some other nations.
