It will come as no surprise that life in Greece is not just sunnier and more laid-back than in the UK, but is also much cheaper! Overall, our index shows that living here is 21% cheaper than in the UK. Leisure activities are much cheaper than in the UK in general, as is most of the weekly supermarket shop and many household items.
Greeks have an eye for a bargain and most know exactly where to go for the best deals, which may not always be found in the big supermarket chains. The big exception to the lower cost of living is imported goods, because of the tax, so finding your local equivalent is often the savviest option.
