It was attention-grabbing to search out solutions to this query, so at work I mingled with foreigners and requested how do they stay in Norway? It was an enormous shock!! after I realized from them that life is really easy and never costly in any respect.

The truth I discovered in Norway, all folks can stay and not using a large funds not as I imagined earlier than, dwelling there’s not costly in any respect!


#Not costly for meals and meals.

There are about 1 million foreigners dwelling in Norway and from totally different nationalities, the wage of such folks is totally different, so the funds for each can also be totally different, so whenever you go to the grocery store to purchase meals, one can find totally different merchandise there. costly and one other low-cost, there. they’ve two corporations, one among them is known as FIRST PRICE, they promote all of the merchandise so low-cost, from bread to meat, they promote it at low-cost costs, for instance you will discover the worth of bread, it prices about 40.00 Kora, it’s about $4.00 bread, you will discover it with these corporations with KOR 7.00 lower than $1 they usually do the identical with all merchandise.

By the way in which, I am speaking right here in regards to the inside value of the bus in every metropolis, you’ll be able to solely pay 50.00 kor to get a ticket and now and again they’ve presents for passengers as I discussed earlier than. However if you wish to go to a different metropolis, possibly you’ll journey by practice or bus, there are different mounted costs, not low-cost and with out reductions, for instance, should you needed to journey from Oslo to Sandfjord by practice or bus, there is identical. ticket prices about 300 kor.

My recommendation do not assume to name a TAXI there as a result of it’s actually very costly.

YES as a result of we now have some matching factors that we already talked about, reminiscent of meals, garments, transport, taxis and anyway this info may help the vacationer too.

Solely a vacationer he won’t go to stay in a flat or a home as a result of the rental system in Norway doesn’t permit you to hire a flat for per week or two and should you discover out that it’ll price a lot for that interval, the rental system there’s annual and generally could make contracts for five years so I feel the vacationer won’t ever go to stay within the house and can in all probability have booked the lodge earlier than the journey.

As for the costs of lodges in Norway a bit costly, however I feel that if the vacationer decides to go to Norway for a vacationer tour, he’ll have the ability to discover a appropriate lodge for reserving and might know in regards to the costs from the Web and to decide on the very best for his funds.

The author of this text lived and labored in Norway for greater than 3 years, realized Norwegian language to talk and write fluently, moved for work in lots of cities in lodge branches throughout Norway, in Oslo, Tonsberg and Sandfjord. Resulting from household situations, he needed to briefly cease work and return dwelling.
