Expats have it worse than Brits at home, survey reveals

Post Office research published today showed that household bills, motoring and eating out went up in price by over eight per cent, on average, for expats.
Rises were even higher than that for many surveyed. Two in five said their overall living costs had increased by over ten per cent, with food and household bills causing the greatest concern.
Price rises for expats in Portugal and Greece were higher than for any other country surveyed, according to the Post Office Expat Payments Index.
John Willcock, head of Post Office transactional services, said: “Increases of over 20 per cent for household essentials were commonplace in Portugal with almost one in five expats experiencing this level of price rise.
“In Greece, over two-thirds of UK citizens said their living costs had risen over 10 per cent in 12 months, while three in ten put the increase at over 20 per cent and 17 per cent at over 30 per cent.”
