humm... I think I'm overpaying. I'm sure my group policy costs more than that.

Quite possibly if you have comprehensive cover, or are with one of the insurers where you are paying for a name. Or also have maternity cover.

Plenty of decent (ie. officially rated "Good") schools in Garhoud for half that price, where many of the senior teachers are English but most of the pupils are not. That's very near the airport but inexpensive villas are few and far between. Some nice apartments around Dubai Festival City.

If his wife can find a decent paying job making at least 15,000 a month, the family can swing it on Dubai. But she has to find the job and that's no guarantee in this market.

Dude, does your wife have any qualifications or training?

May I also ask what nationality you are? I gather you're British, but if you're British Indian/Pakistani or another British muslim you actually more options open to you in terms of schooling than a typical white British family. The Indian schools out here are much cheaper and still have fairly high academic standards.

so she wouldn't earn much here at all either. I agree with Meow I think the school fees will cripple you in the end, and they go up annually

yup - at least our medical is paid for by the company!

To the OP - I'd say it's a no, to be honest. The cost of living here is pretty similar to living in London (different sums go on different things), and for example, even though petrol is far cheaper here, you meed more of it. Dubai's not a place to be living on the breadline.

I have a feeling that you are not going to listening as it's not what you want to hear...?

For a family of four with kids in schools I would say you need an all in package of 45k / month
