#john from auckland on Nov 20, 2014 :
Now living in the uk. Many costs in nz are twice as high as UK.
#Farrukh from Auckland, NZ on Oct 21, 2014 :
I see figures are accurately mentioned on this website.

Cheers
#anonymouscomment on Oct 17, 2014 :
Hmm I think this is probably quite accurate. Fantastic website numbeo is. Robertfrombulgaria yes NZ is expensive, especially Auckland, and its BECAUSE of the high quality of life that it is expensive. That comes at a price. Auckland is consistently ranked among the top cities in the world. That comes at a price. Other top cities like Vancouver are enormously expensive because everyone wants to live in these cities.

#Bob on Jun 06, 2014 :
Newzealand is very expensive! Being a kiwi myself, we had to leave. Barely making it from month to month as professionals was very difficult
#addi on May 10, 2014 :

#Robert from Bulgaria on May 09, 2014 :
I am shoked of the figures.Can't be that bad!?Bulgaria,65-th rated in the world,according to the quality of life,currently I reside,as a teacher(2500NZ$,after tax)pay 3-4 times less in comparison to what kiwis do.Check this out,all in NZ$:
Home Internet-17,65 Mbps
Mobile,data plan incl.(350min.EU calls and int.-20
Rent(3bed flat)-400
Public transport-0,60 ticket
Taxi-20(20km ride)
Petrol-2,70(same price as NZ)
Beer-1,00(market),2,00-bar
Dinner-50,00(for 4 in restaurant)
Wine-12,00(in restaurant),5,00(shop price)
Dentist-30filling,100-crown,300 denture,300 teeth whitening
Fitness membership-30
Car wash-20
Cinema-8(2/3D)
My car(Kia Carnival van,second-hand,6 years,executive)-5000
Cigarettes-4
100000 russians bought properties in Bulgaria and 80 000 Brits.
So,it looks like to me the poorest EU country offers better quality of life than NZ
#Davey on Feb 11, 2014 :
Ignore the first commenter - most kiwis not on the minimum wage easily have $100 per week (400 per month) left over after essentials. Its just that most kiwis then choose to spend their extra cash, giving the impression we dont have a lot of cash. Most of us kiwis dont know how to save...
#Orson on Jul 28, 2013 :
The NZ figures are severely under-estimated, in some case by 150% or more a simple search of the local internet for data plans, food prices, petrol prices, house costs will show you that someone is cooking the books. The average kiwi hasn't got $400 per month in their pocket after expenses.
