Many people dream of packing it all in and relocating to warmer climes or simply to discover a new city, culture, or language. 
UBS has ranked global cities in terms of what it would cost expats to live there as a family for one month. 
If you can’t quite afford the price tag of Geneva, then why not consider Buenos Aires or Santiago, where living costs are a fraction of the price — Spanish lessons included. 

 

Many people dream of packing it all in and relocating to warmer climes or simply to a new city to discover another culture or language. If you’re curious as to how much it would cost you to move abroad, then you’re in luck, as UBS recently published a ranking of the cost of living in cities around the world.

The report estimated how much a family with kids would spend over a month in each city, taking into account the average cost of local “basic expenses,” such as food, household goods, and clothing, and local “expat extras,” including rent for a two-bed furnished apartment, international school fees, language lessons, and — in case you’re feeling flush — even household help twice a month.

So from Buenos Aires, to Sydney, Dubai, and Amsterdam scroll down to find out the average living cost for an expat in each city, ranked from cheapest to most expensive.
