Food in general is more expensive, and obviously with being so far away you spend more on travel and phone bills. Innsbruck was quite quiet on a night so I didn't spend as much as I would at home.

Personal comments
Using cash machines to withdraw money from an account at home ends up costing a fortune, so it is worth opening a bank account there, despite the linguistic stress it can cause. Internet banking was a life saver though, and HSBC were usually happy to ring me back if I needed to call them. Internet was provided in my halls of residence for free, along with a phone, although we did receive a bill for this at the end of the semester.

Transportation is pretty expensive compared to Greece. Buy a bicycle - everybody uses one and they are not expensive to buy, especially a second-hand.
