It's not really a surprise.
In 2023, some things will also become more expensive for consumers in Germany, both in the leisure sector and in consumption.
Consumers have to be very strong again: It is already clear that things will be significantly more expensive in some areas in 2023 - again.
Both individual products such as Coca-Cola and service providers as well as entire sectors in which prices for customers are rising are affected.
summarizes everything that will become more expensive in 2023.
Energy prices and food costs will continue to rise in 2023
One thing is clear: energy prices will probably continue to rise enormously in the coming year.
has already reported on the electricity price forecast for 2023 – consumers could face over 200 euros more per month.
EnBW has already announced massive price increases.
After all, when it comes to gas, the federal government wants to relieve consumers with a gas price brake from January and not just from March, as originally planned.
Food prices are also expected to keep rising in 2023 due to the energy crisis and inflation.
Customers should be particularly careful with hidden price increases, because product price increases are not always obvious to consumers.
Discounters are accused of being price drivers in the crisis –
Kaufland, Lidl and Co. commented on the allegations against
In some cases, there were already price increases of up to 80 percent in 2022.
, Coca-Cola wants to make its drinks even more expensive in 2023 – Edeka is trying to resist this.
As early as the first quarter, Coca-Cola wants to approach retailers and raise prices.
Travel will be more expensive in 2023: flight prices have doubled in some cases within two years
In the leisure sector, people will also have to dig much deeper into their pockets in the future: travel will become more expensive.
As the ADAC reports, certain airlines are increasing flight prices particularly sharply.
There should be “up to 46 percent price increase compared to 2022”, in a price comparison from 2021 to 2023 the ticket prices of some airlines will even double.
Flights with Lufthansa and Swiss will probably be particularly expensive – it is cheapest to fly with the Turkish low-cost airline Pegasus, as the comparison portal Idealo has evaluated.
And: According to information from the German Press Agency (dpa)
, Europapark is increasing its admission prices
by around five percent.
According to Europapark's online booking system, a standard day ticket will cost at least EUR 57.50 from March.
The reason for this is fewer visitors due to the corona pandemic and rising energy prices.
"Just ridiculous": Kaufland and Lidl pay employees a bonus of 40 million euros
Caution: It is currently better not to answer the phone with these numbers
Netflix wants to take action against the sharing of accounts - streaming is becoming more expensive
And it's not just leisure activities outside the home that are becoming more expensive.
Watching films and series is also becoming more expensive for some – namely for everyone who shares an account.
More expensive subscriptions allow streaming on up to five profiles at the same time, but Netflix account sharing is only intended for people from one household – not for a whole circle of friends, for example.
So far, Netflix account sharing is limited only in Latin American countries.
As reported by
and in a letter from shareholders, changes are now also to come to German Netflix users.
From the spring of 2023, the markets in Central Europe will also be subject to stricter controls.
Customers should then have the option of either converting an existing shared account profile to a standalone one or paying a surcharge for "sub-accounts".
A cheaper alternative might be to simply take out the new Netflix subscription with advertising.
Taxes will rise from January: Smoking and inheritance will be more expensive in 2023 - health insurance contributions will rise
In addition, smokers have to adjust to more expensive cigarettes.
On January 1, 2023, tobacco tax will increase in Germany.
However, the price increase here is probably hardly enough for a large number of people to give up smoking: a pack of cigarettes is around 10 cents more expensive.
If you take a closer look at the pay slip, some employees will probably soon be surprised: the health insurance contributions will also increase in 2023.
The nasty thing is that consumers do not have to be informed directly.
Something that few people are probably aware of and that usually doesn't affect you often, but can still be annoying: Inheritance will be more expensive from January due to the Annual Tax Act 2023, as reported by
, among other things - including inheriting real estate.
New standards will apply to the valuation of real estate from the beginning of next year.
