I have recently done some serious thinking about a move to Malta, I love the life style there and have visited many times.

Would any one be able to tell me what the average cost of living is like?

Also if any one has tips on where to shop etc, that would be great.

Hi Michelle,

Well how much you spend grocery shopping really depends on where you shop, My wife and I spend about 450Euros a month, I would recommend the Ta' Qali market for your fruit and veg needs. It is a lot cheaper than supermarkets with higher quality produce.

We also pay about 600Euros rent each month for a two bedroom flat, which suits us fine. You would be looking at 400 - 450 for a 1 bedroom if that is all you need.

Good luck if you choose to make the move.

What kind of customs fees or import taxes do you pay on cars, boats, furniture, electronics? I was looking into the "low cost" of Costa Rica, and I was told by a local that it costs almost double U.S. prices for transportation and recreational vehicles, as well as computers, etc. Just wondering about Malta.
