World’s Top 20 Cities For Cash-Strapped Millennials In 2018

Sure there’s plenty of action in London and New York, but who can afford the rent?  As it turns out, Scotland’s Edinburgh ranked No. 1 in MoveHub list of cities where young people can find the best quality of life for their money.

Here, a fully furnished one-bed apartment costs on average $756.66 per month, accounting for 30% of the average monthly earnings. Leaving plenty of disposable income to enjoy.

Austria’s capital city Vienna and German capital Berlin ranked No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

And, if you’re wondering, other 17 cash-strapped millennials friendly cities in the world.

Yay. But, what the heck does that mean, you ask? Good question.

The folks at MoveHub, an international relocation company, has examined the affordability & lifestyle for young people in 32 large cities around the globe, taking into account average monthly costs including income, renting a one-bed apartment, public transport, as well as the density​ ​of cheap eats (places​ ​per 100,000 people), the cost of a coffee, as well as the city’s safety score (based on Deutsche Bank research).

India’s financial centre – the city of Mumbai ranked 8th on the list, offering the cheapest public transport ($14.60 per month) and one of the cheapest coffees, Mumbai also beat out competitors Paris, Brussels and Dublin for safety, with a fairly respectable score of 30. As India’s most cosmopolitan city continues to modernize and develop, perhaps it will gradually become a popular choice for broke millennials looking to move elsewhere. Emma Leigh-Morgan, Data Analyst at MoveHub wrote.
