    各位親愛的同學,再出發前有些注意事項要跟大家說明一下,

    麻煩大家多花一些時間看完吧,請不要嫌我囉唆,在機場出發前我應該還會在提醒大家一次~^^

    *關於接機的費用:每位接機人員10鎊(好比說三位接機的學長姐,我們12個去分攤30鎊的費用)

    *另外,還有每人5鎊的會費

    *這些費用在到英國機場後我會先跟各位收取,在一起交給接機的學長姐

    *這些費用不包含我們的計程車費,計程車費則視一輛計程車多少人來分攤了

    當然,學長姐的計程車費,是由我們來支付唷~~

    (住校外的同學請注意,學長姐沒辦法帶各位過去你們住的地方,所以要請你

    們自行搭乘計程車了~)

    *上機前請確定”隨身攜帶”:

    1. 學校正式offer正本(海關可能要求要看)

    2.學校住宿證明正本(有交deposit那一張)3. 護照+2吋照片…….這一點是廢話(這是學長說的)

    ***anyway,所有學校相關入學證明的正本,一切隨身攜帶!!!

    ***從伯明罕機場出關(只通過海關之後),請走藍線….及不用檢查行李那一線,以縮短接機人員等候時間。

    當天購物等事宜:

    第一天要做的事如下:

    0720-0830 接機、打電話報平安

    0830-1030 辦理住宿,購買寢具,放行李

    1130-1230 前往市中心–午餐

    1230-1600前往市中心購買:熱水器、鍋碗瓢盆、材米油鹽醬醋茶、pay as u go (手機預付卡)、國際電話卡、桌燈….等,以及往後數日簡單食物

    1700-1800 返回宿舍

    學長說最近英國天氣變冷了,記得穿些保暖的衣服

    昨天通電話時的氣溫是11度…..ㄎㄎ~我覺得…有冷~~

    另外,網路線(不是電話線)和USB線(接printer的線)記得要帶……

    手機的話,請在台灣辦好,到英國只能辦理預付卡

    雙頻的手機即可,要注意的是,充電器要能承受220V的電壓唷~~

    有蛇麼其他問題的話,請直接在板上回覆發問吧~~^^

    關於要帶多少現金的問題,以下是學長之前的文章

    請大家參考參考~~

    至於帶多少現金,提共我個人的經驗

    1. 匯票— 可以將presection 的學費、住宿費”分兩張”帶過來

    2. 旅支—個人覺得至少帶3000-4000磅。以下是我的分析:

    # 旅支最安全。thomas cook 的店可以換現金 “確定一定會收”手續費2-3%吧!

    #旅支只有存到自己”已經開好”的銀行帳戶中”才不用”收手續費!

    英國銀行開戶至少兩週,最多…..恩….妳念到presection上完都開不了!小弟去年就是這樣!辦某家知名的H***銀行,按規矩上網先登記後,等了半天沒回應。打電話去客服問了半天,花了”一大筆”pay as u go 的電話費,最後還是不了了之。態度差到讓妳氣瘋!!

    HSB*–得上網先登記,加上學校住宿證明等文件,最快、最lucky、最順利辦起來也要四周吧~

    最後,還是得去開Barclays。因為B銀行最快、態度最佳。但是,他有存款最低2000英鎊的限制,否則會收”帳戶管理費”(每月價錢我不清楚,好像是5-6英鎊吧。)

    有些人比較過利率….等,但是,小弟給的建議是:先在最短時間開一家銀行帳戶!!

    之後很多事情都是要看與銀行之間的往來信件”bank statement”,才能辦理。況且,有了帳戶,台灣家人匯錢、之後大筆的學費也比較方便,不用一天到晚帶一堆現金。用此地的debit/swift card真得安全又方便!!!

    3.現金方面:台幣:四五萬吧(也就是800-900英鎊,最好1000囉)~~~

    這個數字聽起來有一點嚇人。但是,各位要想一想,如果妳帳戶開很久很久的話,家人就算有錢也幫不了妳!!妳得撐多久,就看妳開戶開多久囉~錢嘛~藏好~~又不是現出來擺闊?也沒要妳隨身帶(我通常身上一開始每一天會放30-40磅現金,以備不時之需;迷路叫計程車啦、手機沒錢啦、搞不清楚人家家的物價狀況啦…etc)

    學費方面,我去年是請家人匯過來,帶著自己的支票本,到學校櫃臺,請校方人員”自己開”,然後小弟我再簽名囉~(PS:這方式誰然有一點”帥氣”,但是,簽名前還是得仔細檢查一下啦)

    =============================

    結論:

    *身上帶1千鎊左右的現金(開戶時間大約為4-6週,這段時間要用的錢,請各位斟酌自己的情況而定)

    *另外開一張2000鎊的匯票,要開戶用,學長覺得開匯票會比較方便

    (Barclays開戶要2000鎊)

    最後,謝謝辛苦的學長姐,之後要請你們多多照顧了~~^^

    最新的消息, 僅供參考, 簡單的說, 就是手提行李Size又變大了

    英 國 貿 易 文 化 辦 事 處

    英國運輸部門放寬對航空旅客之限制,宣布自9月22日起允許乘客攜帶一件手提行李登機 。 手提行李 的尺寸限制為一 件長 56cm x 寬 45cm x 深 25cm (包含手把及輪子的登機 箱或隨身行李)。 所有隨身行李仍需要經由 X光儀檢查通過 ,方可登機 。

    另外除經證明之處方藥液及嬰兒用流質食物外,任何液體均不可攜帶登機 。

    液態物品如髮膠,牙膏,乳液,飲料,香水,刮鬍膏,或芳香噴霧等之類產品均無法攜帶上機。並且為了加速檢查工作的進行,旅客請勿攜帶 任何可以存放液體物品的瓶罐等容器於隨身行李中,以免延緩進行檢查 的時間 。

    另外所有筆記型電腦或較大型電器( 如吹風機 )應自行置於檢查站的籃 子供X光儀檢查 。

    輪椅或其他行走輔助器也同樣必需經 X光儀檢查。

    請注意以上檢查將花費許多時間,請事先與航空公司確認起飛時間並提早抵達機場 。

    若對於自台灣飛抵英國或至英國轉機的行李各項規定仍有疑問,請向機場櫃台 及航空公司再次確認。

    英國內政部及運輸部發布之新聞稿全文如下 :

    Airline security

    UPDATED: 21 September 2006

    The Department for Transport has today announced changes to the UK's aviation security measures, notably increases to the size of cabin baggage that can be taken onboard an aircraft. The changes will take effect from Friday 22 September 2006 (see below).

    From Friday 22 September 2006, all passengers starting their journey at a UK airport and those transferring from international flights at a UK airport will be required to meet the following requirements:

    Cabin Baggage

    ONE item only of cabin baggage will be permitted through the airport security search point, the dimensions of this item must not exceed: a maximum length of 56 cm, width of 45 cm and depth of 25 cm (including wheels, handles, side pockets etc.).

    Other bags, such as handbags, may be carried within the single item of cabin baggage. All items carried by passengers will be x-ray screened.

    Mobility aids

    No change. Pushchairs, walking aids and wheelchairs are permitted but will be screened.

    Liquids

    Restrictions remain in force, meaning that no liquids of any type are permitted through the airport security search point, other than the following items:

    Essential medicines in liquid form sufficient and essential for the flight (e.g. diabetic kit), as long as it is verified as authentic. Medicines in solid form continue to be permitted.

    Baby milk and liquid baby food (the contents of each bottle or jar must be tasted by the accompanying passenger).

    To help their progress through search points, passengers are advised not to include items capable of containing liquids (e.g. bottles, flasks, tubes, cans, plastic containers etc.) in their cabin baggage.

    NOTE: The definition of liquids includes gels, pastes, lotions, liquid/solid mixtures and the contents of pressurised containers, e.g. toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfume, deodorant, shaving foam, aerosols, etc.

    Large electrical items / Laptops

    No change. Laptops and other large electrical items (e.g. a large hairdryer) will still have to be removed from cabin baggage and screened separately. (Note: a laptop bag will be regarded as your one item that is allowed in the cabin).

    In addition to the above, passengers boarding flights to the USA and the items they are carrying, including those acquired after the airport security search point, will continue to be subjected to secondary search at the gate. Any liquids discovered will be removed from the passenger.

    Musical instruments

    Musical instruments which do not fit in the permitted cabin baggage size (maximum length of 56 cm, width of 45 cm and depth of 25 cm (including wheels, handles, side pockets etc.)) will be allowed as a second item of cabin baggage, and will need to be screened. Larger instruments (e.g. cellos) are also permitted into the cabin following screening. However, passengers should check with their airlines if special arrangements (e.g. purchasing an extra seat) for these large instruments need to be made.

    Oversized baggage

    All other items of oversized luggage will be required to be placed in the aircraft hold.

    Flights to the US

    Passengers boarding flights to the USA and items they are carrying, including those acquired after the central screening point, will be subjected to secondary search at the gate. Any liquids discovered will be removed from the passenger.

    If passengers have any questions on their travel arrangements or security in place at airports they should contact the airport or their
