Good luck - I can't give you any advice but will watch your thread with interest as my parents hope to follow us out in the future (not sure what the OH thinks about it though!)

If you search on google for health insurence in nz, you should be able to find a site that you can type in what you want and they will give you a quick instant estimate of what its going to cost, from three different companies (sorry we used this to get ours but I can't seem to find it now!!!) I will ask my husband if he knows...

Also for life insurence www.lifedirect.co.nz also will compare companies for you to get a life insurence quote, (we found that it was too expensive to keep up payments on our UK one with the exchange rates/ bank charges.)
