Default cost-of-living calculators/comparisons

I read an interesting thread on here lately regarding cost-of-living - https://britishexpats.com/forum/new-...tay-go-926026/ - so thought I'd post a few (hopefully) useful links in here and we can maybe turn it into a sticky thread to help future visitors in their decision making. The veterans on here will know more about these cost-of-living comparison sites than i do, I've had a play with them and not sure on their accuracy - so hopefully we can all shed some light on it

https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living

Council tax rates aren't included on the lists, and neither are things like dental costs from what I could see. It's very basic... Obviously this depends on area, but how does everyone's council tax rates compare against UK rates? Do you feel like it's a fair price for what you're getting?

Have been here so long I couldn't tell you what my UK rates were.

Well well well, would you look at that.
I doubt it'll stop people from moaning though

Can’t see what site that’s from but if it’s Numbeo take it with a pinch of salt - that website is about as much use as a chocolate teapot IME!

I've found Numbeo and Expatistan's data 'interesting', even though it's apparently been updated as recent as this week

Thanks, another interesting read, the data seems not too dissimilar to Numbeo

Found another page, not sure how out-of-date it is though: https://www.hendersoninternational.c...n-new-zealand/
