Numbeo: Bermuda One Of Highest Cost Of Living

July 29, 2019

The most expensive countries in the world according to new cost-of-living indices are the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, according to a report by USA Today.

The report was citing cost-of-living data collected by Numbeo, a Serbian-based website that describes itself as maintaining ‘the world’s largest database of user contributed data about cities and countries worldwide.’

“Bermuda has the highest cost of living index, including rent, at 114.03%, followed by the Cayman Islands at 109.49%. Their positions flip if rent is factored out, with the Caymans at 141.64% and Bermuda at 138.22%. [Switzerland is in third place by both measures.],” USA Today noted.

      Ya I know, and when OBA was in seniors and workers didnt get an increase, but we spent $77 Million on a sailboat race for Billionaires.

      • Double S says:

        Can you explain how the PLP’s increase in:

        - Foreign currency purchase tax
        - residential and commercial land tax
        - gas fee increases
        - sugar tax
        - MRF by >$200% (resulting in higher insurance premiums)
        - duty and wharfage fees
        - etc.

        has assisted in lowering the cost of living in this already expensive island? You can’t, because they haven’t. In actuality they have achieved the exact opposite but yet you sit here and cheer them like the little brainwashed freak you are. Sad.

        BTW your party increased seniors’ pension payments by less than $20 a month and then via their actions increased everyone’s healthcare premiums by 10% or higher (ie alot more than the paltry pension raise).

        Burch was talking to the likes of you regarding Bermudians who view the Government as being their provider for all in life. Sad.

    Onion Juice where are you? Remember the PLP agenda. They are going to be putting more money in the pockets of the average Bermudian? How is that working out for you?! But then again, I trust you are getting paid to do what you do anyway.

  3. Datbye says:

    Again not a surprise, one of the main reasons why so many Bermudains have left and are still leaving the island. Such a sad thing just going to get worst.

    • Correct says:

      You are full of crap! How many Bermudians have left because of cost of living? You make such idiotic statements with no data to support. STFU!

  4. Ronda says:

    what’s funny is the same people coming to Bermuda for the higher wages, complain that Bermuda doesn’t have the lowest cost of living …

    They go together its all relative.
