    Hi, My husbands job is moving to USA for at least next 5 years. Needing to set up a home in Connecticut, does anyone have any advice or know of any useful website.
    I wish Martin had an American cousin with a US version of this website lol

    Top tip: ensure that he makes contact with US employer's HR people. Above all, ensure that you know about medical insurance for all the family.

    Look at nearest airports with JetBlue and SouthWest flights, avoid Spirit.

    There are lots of loyalty schemes that can be very good thepointsguy website is useful.

    Driving is easy with wider roads, sometimes easier than the airport hassle. Don’t forget inland lake holidays can be great.
    Lobster in Maine is delicious.
    Check the sales tax situation in nearby states.

    It gets hot in high summer viz aircon and pop up swimming pool.
