Hi
I am Sachin from India. I m planning to shift in newzealand in couple of months. Can any body tell me the actual cost of living.
#yiggity on Jul 09, 2014 :
a 1 bed room apartment in the city can be as cheap as $200 per week..
#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 :
Hello

I plan to come new Zealand as a student, my question is can I earn $1700 per month?
#Robert from Bulgaria on May 09, 2014 :
I am shoked of the figures.Can't be that bad!?Bulgaria,65-th rated in the world,according to the quality of life,currently I reside,as a teacher(2500NZ$,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.
