Hey guys, I know I have not been posting for a while... been busy. But I had questions and thought that this place is international enough, someone might be able to help me. So, I might be moving to London for few years (from Bay Area (CA)). None of this is for sure, it depends on results of my moms health, my work, and what my work will offer me compare to cost of living in London. Obviously, you guys can't help me with first 2, but I need help understanding the 3rd part, that is, in regard to cost of living and to say "yes" or "no" to the relocation based on what they will offer me. My office is located around St. Paul's cathedral. So I am looking at zone 2, i believe? From what I can tell, if i want to have daily commute of 1 hour each way, the rent is pretty high. When looking at renting a 1 bedroom flat, and looking at cost of living. What do people normally believe is the "comfortable" cost of living in London. I understand that comfortable means different things for everyone, so let me explain. I am not big on going out to fancy places, I like my dive bars and if eating out, I am not big on fancy places. For example, I once chose a taqueria because the review from 3 years ago said "I found a cockroach in my food!" So i figure, if it has reviews like that and manages to stay in business, food must be great!" So, you get my lifestyle. One thing that I do spend a lot of money is travelling. In US i went camping a lot, driving to Utah in a month to go offroading... So I imagine I'll be renting cars, going places, flying or taking a train to random destinations on mainland (nature, historic places, etc)... For places to stay, probably using airbnb. Realistically, that's part of the reason I am thinking of relocating for few years. So based on that descriptions. What should I be looking at from my company to make it ok for me to relocate? I am looking probably around 50-55k GBP (I am guessing based on conversion and fact that the salaries are smaller outside bay area), but just in case, with that description, say they offer 45k GBP? Is that livable over there when considering taxes, average bills, rent? I am asking so when they do say exactly what they offer, to be able to say "No, i want this to relocate" or what they offer is ok. I might follow with few more questions. Thank you in advance.
