Average Move Costs

An online provider of moving services has created a ready reckoner for average move costs in the wake of Brexit and data on Millennials’ hunger to relocate.

Movinga’s survey into the relocation plans of 5,000 potential Millennial movers (aged 25-35) found 50 per cent of the sample are looking to relocate in the next five years.

To offer the group insights into the average costs of doing this, Movinga crunched the data on the four key factors it assesses contribute most to the total cost of an expat’s first month in a new home in 75 key cities across the globe.

1. rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the city centre (35 square-metre apartment close to the city centre)

2. cost of mobile phone set up and data plan

3. price of a monthly public transportation pass

4. food and drink for thirty days.
