I have a 2018 Skoda Octavia 1.0 TSI with 70,000km on the clock. I was wondering when should I be changing the timing belt. I cannot find anything about this in the user manual.

The belt in that car was designed for long life, so the advice is to have it checked by a qualified mechanic at 240,000km and then every 30,000km after until it's deemed necessary to have it replaced.
Saying all that, if I owned the car, I'd have it checked much earlier, at 100,000km or so.
