    To your average Briton, Slovakia is one of Europe's less well-known countries. Why not do something to change that sad state of affairs with our Quick Quiz?

Money matters

Moving to Malta

No, really... it does!
But does it matter more in Malta than at home?

Moving to Malta

Postby shooki » Sat 13 Sep 2008 10:17 GMT

Hi guys,

Me and my partner are about to move to work in Malta in a few months.
We don't have an idea of the prices in Malta. We will have the opportunity to rent an apartment for 700 EUR per a month for two room's apartment. What is the electricity bill expected in such an apartment? a water bill?
What is a milk price? Cheese? 1.5 water? vegetables?

:)

Hi and welcome to the forum :D

where are you moving from ?

electricity and water - depends on how much you use - electricity use mainly depends on what form of heating you use (electric, gas, kerosine etc) and how much you use aircon - water is about € 3 per cubic metre, electricity about 20c per Kwh

milk - 72c per litre
water - 2l distilled - about 35-40c
veg/cheese - what type ?

Thank you for the information. Are those price include taxes?
and generally the prices in Malta include tax?

I'm moving from Israel.
I was interested in prices of yellow cheese, white cheese, tomatoes...

Hi,

You should be aware that rental prices in Malta are not very high compared to many other countries, especially the UK. 700 Euros for 2 bedrooms is at the top end of the price scale so for that price it should be a very nice flat and in a good area. I don't think you would have a problem finding something EU1-200 cheaper, if you wanted to.

Yup, I just moved here from the UK and managed to find a brand new penthouse with 3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms totaly furnished and very modern in St Julian's for 900 euros a month.

We figured with family and friends visting for vacations it would be worth getting the extra space.

My Mum got a 3 bedroom apartment in Gozo with stunning views for € 450, but Gozo is somewhat cheaper for renting than Malta. Buying is about the same Gozo v Malta

I know, for 900 euros in Gozo we could have rented a 4 bedroom house with a private swimming pool!

I just didnt want to have to deal with the ferry everytime we wanted to get over to the mainland.
