How do you manage bills/water when you are out of town for a month or more?

Jump to last reply

I posted this on the US forum because it applies to my next travel plans but is it different for overseas travel? Online sounds more logical but are there other ways?

"So far, I have successfully resisted on-line banking and would appreciate it if you don't tell me why I shouldn't. This is for those of us still in the ice age who prefer 1st class mail.

For those of you who are away from home for a month or 2, do you have you mail forwarded to your hotel/apartment?

Also, do you have a plumber turn off water and put something in the pipes to prevent freezing?

Thanks, TDu"
