    For such a small nation, Iceland has a lot of superlatives. How much do you know about this intriguing country on the north-western edge of Europe?

Money matters

Can I afford to live on Gozo?

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

NO ADVERTISING - financial services adverts belong in our classifieds section. Get-rich-quick schemes belong in the trash.

Hello to all on the forum. I have been reading it for a while now,still can't work out if we can afford to live on gozo ? Both EU. One receiving full state pension +savings (27k) my full state pension starts 2019. We would be long term renters with a moderate lifestyle.not sure of minimum rent per annum. Or hidden costs, health cover seems another area to discuss (both have paid full national ins. Con.) We are coming to gozo for a holiday and a fact finding mission pretty soon, a little inside info.from some of you lucky xpats on gozo would be great.kind regards eddiepie

Hi Eddie, welcome to the forum, and thank you for becoming a premium member :-)

If you hold UK passports, you use the RHA for health cover until you reach UK retirement age, you then transfer your UK rights to Malta.
