Re: Salary comparison 50k Dublin, Ireland 》125k chf Zurich

Great, thanks guys, I really appreciate your feedback.

The key thing for me is that it is not just 'a few extra quid' but a significant step up to really influence me to relocate. From the different responses it appears it is a significant raise.

I plan on using this as a milestone to start properly saving and reduce my general expenses (something I haven't been good at in Ireland).

I know it is very much down to the individual but from looking at different expenses I am expecting/hoping general monthly outgoings to be around 4000chf (2000 on rent, then 2000 to cover general bills, food, drink etc.). Which would allow me to save roughly half my net income.

As said I know it is very much down to the indivudal but does 4k expenses (incl rent) per month sound realistic or under / over estimated? (I am a single guy and won't have a car - I will have a subsidised travel card for zurich city area, subsidised gym and canteen).
