The Cost of Loving around the world

To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, we have used our latest cost of living data to show how much a romantic date could cost in 26 different cities around the world. The evening date includes a dinner for two, two cinema tickets, two drinks at a bar and a return taxi journey. 

The data shows that the cost of romance certainly varies depending on your location. A Valentine’s Day date in Zurich, Switzerland would set you back over five times as much as in Tashkent, Uzbekistan!


ECA publishes cost of living data for over 480 cities around the world. It is available from ECA in several forms: as part of a subscription in a calculator which allows you to experiment with different types of index and review the outputs; in reports, providing background detail for specific indices; and as part of the Build-up Calculator for performing balance-sheet calculations.

Cost of living data is also pre-populated in ECAEnterprise, our Assignment Management System, and in our Net-to-Net Calculator.
