#Anonymous on May 26, 2017 :
So a family of two the salary of 2300 Euros should be sufficient
#Regina on Apr 05, 2016 :
Oh and you have to pay something called "wegenbelasting" to pay for the usage of the roads. A car of 800 kg with low emission will cost you about 19 euros a month. You also need insurance. A new car, all risk insurance, with a few years of no damage on your record will set you back about 50-60 euros a month for a car worth about 10k.

@Chris, I'm not sure if people pay in monthly instalments that much in the Netherlands. Advertisements here say "Pay half now, pay half in 3 years" sometimes, so they expect people to actually save up for the car or lend the money from someone else. If you want to pay monthly, leasing a car is an option as well. Just search for "auto leasen nederland" to find some options.
