Welcome to the Cost of Living in Turkey Calculator, which will help you identify costs associated with living in Turkey.
Back in November 2011, the Bodrum Bulletin produced a survey which questioned 415 people about their basic costs involved with life in Turkey. The answers provided allowed us to produce this calculator which is automatically populated with the average results from the November survey. You can view the results of that survey in detail HERE.
The calculator covers 40 common costs. To use it just work your way through each of the sections, entering expenses as appropriate. For each expense, if it applies, first click the box to activate the expense, then you can either choose the automatically populated "average" cost (shown by values in grey text), or you can enter your own costs if you know them. If an expense does not apply to you, simply leave the box unticked.
1. The average values have been obtained from the survey conducted in November 2011, with a sample size over 200 respondents.
2. There are 5 "tabs" in total; a tab total is displayed at the bottom, together with a grand total. Once you have completed a tab, click the tab at the top of the calculator to to to the next tab. Note that you can freely swap between tabs without loosing your data.
