Hi Dario. " better off"means to be in a better or more prosperous condition: Example: You would be better off taking the train instead of driving; I felt better off after the rise in stock prices. I had recouped my money.

Hi... In a more favorable position or financial circumstances. For example, They were better off flying than driving there, or They were better off than most of their neighbors. This phrase is the comparative form of well off and dated from the Mid-1800s.
