The Cost of Loving around the world

Valentine’s Day will be a little different this year for most people, so this February we have used our latest cost of living data to show how much a date night at home would cost in 24 different cities around the world. The romantic night in includes a takeaway meal for two, a bottle of red wine, a tub of ice cream and a board game. 

Our data shows that despite not being able to go out on a date in most places, the cost of romance still varies depending on your location. A romantic evening in Oslo, Norway would cost over double the amount it would in Mexico City!


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.
