Cost of Living

The U.K. is a high cost of living area for the military, so you should prepare and start saving for the move months before you PCS. To help offset the higher price of non-housing goods and services, you will receive an Overseas Cost of Living Allowance (COLA). To find more information about COLA, visit the Defense Travel Management Office website. Remember that in securing rental housing at a new location, you may be required to pay the first month's rent (which can range from 900 pounds to 2,500 pounds) in advance and also a security deposit, which is a major expense.

Personnel should also be prepared to defray added expenses not normally found in the states, i.e., television license (annual cost is approximately 160 pounds), and road tax (annual cost is approximately 280 pounds a year for imports, and up to 630 pounds a year for cars bought in the U.K.)  Research cost of road tax for a vehicle before you purchase it in the U.K. as this is based on fuel type and CO2 emissions.  More details can be found in the ‘Financial Assistance’ section.
