Where should I setup a bank account in Dunedin?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Dunedin what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Before retiring in Dunedin, expats should know that the cost of living is relatively low compared to other major cities in New Zealand. The city offers a range of housing options, from apartments in the city center to houses in the suburbs. Dunedin has a temperate maritime climate, with mild summers and cool winters. The city is known for its stunning natural beauty, including beaches, wildlife, and nearby hiking trails. Healthcare in New Zealand is of a high standard and is free or low cost for residents. Expats retiring in Dunedin will need to apply for a visa, and the type of visa will depend on their circumstances. English is the main language spoken in Dunedin, but the city is multicultural and diverse. The city has a vibrant arts scene, with numerous galleries, theaters, and festivals throughout the year. Dunedin is also known for its Scottish heritage, and this is reflected in the city's architecture and annual events. The city has a good public transport system, but owning a car can be beneficial for exploring the surrounding areas. New Zealand has a reciprocal healthcare agreement with some countries, but it's advisable for expats to have comprehensive health insurance. Finally, New Zealand has a Goods and Services Tax (GST) that applies to most goods and services, so this should be factored into budgeting," remarked another expat in Dunedin, New Zealand.
