Cost of Living

Cost of living

The high quality of life in Monaco does not come cheap for the expatriate. Indeed, according to Xpatulator.com’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Monaco far exceeds the international average. This becomes very apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services such as a household accommodation and furnishings, transport, healthcare, Internet plan, clothing, groceries, alcohol, restaurant meal and retail recreational actives. If a western expat desires to relocate to Monaco, they are encouraged to negotiate a generous compensation plan that is commensurate with the local living expenses.
