    Is this a good package for Qatar ?
    9025 Qatari Riyals per month
    plus housing, paid electricity and water, yearly flights,

    medical, settling allowance, baggage allowance ?

    I am
    hearing that 9025 QR is just too low :( ?
    I also hear it is next to impossible to find taxis in Doha ??

    Thanks.

    How long is a piece of string?

    You can pick up a half decent used 4 door saloon car for about £2500. I prefer 4x4s though as you have more road presence and it means you can explore the rest of Qatar.

    I'd recommend getting a car as public transport is only really used by the manual workers and you don't want to be standing at a bus stop in the Summer months. It's pretty impossible to walk anywhere so you're left with taxis or a car.

    Firstly a piece of string is double the length when measuring from the centre point.

    Secondly, some schools do work to a pay scale so no room for negotiation. Perhaps you could PM me with the school?

    Also, who are you going with? And if you are staying long enough, you could get a bank loan or you could lease a car but i am pretty sure you could car share as well.

    Ahhhhh...how right you are Mr. Hippo....I too have experience that in the Gulf....
    Looks like I'll have to invest in a car then.
    How's the driving over there ?
     
  6. lol the word I put in where the asterixs were was worse (I live here - so also pretty accurate). On the taxi issue you can ring and order taxis from Khawa (sp?) anyway they are cheap and newish. I mainly had probs on a Friday trying to get a taxi - most people I know hired cars for the first 3 months before buying (Not too bad at QR1700 a month).
    I think less than QR10,000 is low - unless you are new to teaching - I have 12 years and am on QR18,000 - I live too much of the high life and dont manage to save!
