Where should I setup a bank account in Taupo?

Answer this Question

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

"Before retiring in Taupo, expats should know that the cost of living can be high, especially when it comes to housing and groceries. They should also be aware that healthcare in New Zealand is of a high standard, but private health insurance is recommended for more comprehensive coverage. Expats should understand that the climate in Taupo is generally mild, with warm summers and cool winters. They should also be prepared for the laid-back lifestyle and friendly community that Taupo offers. It's important for expats to know that they will need a visa to retire in New Zealand, and the process can be complex and time-consuming. They should also be aware that New Zealand has strict biosecurity laws to protect its unique environment, so there are restrictions on what can be brought into the country. Expats should also know that Taupo is a popular tourist destination, known for its beautiful lake and outdoor activities, so it can get busy during peak tourist season. Understanding the tax system is crucial as New Zealand has a progressive tax system, and expats may be liable to pay tax on their worldwide income. Finally, expats should be aware that while English is the primary language spoken in New Zealand, the country has a rich Maori culture and learning some basic Maori phrases can be beneficial," wrote a member who made the move to Taupo, New Zealand.
