Default Another AD package?

Hi
Hubby has been offered a package in AD. 665k pa including 170K for accomodation and 40K for a car.
We know rental is difficult in AD does anyone know any good websites also is a commute from Dubai reasonable, if so what would be the best area of Dubai to look at.
The money looks ok but would it be enough for a good standard of living in AD for both of us and some extra to send back to the UK. Our kids will be living in our house there?
Thanks

If you can't get by on 128,000 UKP tax free a year, I'd be just a little concerned....

Nice package - you may need to use more of it for for rent though. As for where to live, where will your hubby be working? Need to factor that in as commuting can be a complete nightmare in Dubai.

This subject has been covered so many times on this forum.

Here's a tip, use the search function and type in, hmm, lets see, Abu Dhabi Dubai commute maybe???? Or Salary package, or Abu Dhabi rents or..... Oh you get the picture.
