Zurich and Geneva are the first and second most expensive cities in Europe for expatriates, according to the latest cost of living report by ECA. Meanwhile, the cost of living in Basel ranks third in Europe, followed by Bern, Oslo, Stavanger, and Copenhagen. Switzerland continues to have the highest cost of living in Europe with four locations in the top ten.
Helsinki is the eighth-most expensive location in Europe for expat workers to live, and the 13th most expensive in the world. Apart from Swiss cities that continue to dominate the top ten, most European cities have fallen in the rankings since last year.
The latest cost-of-living survey table, which assessed the cost of living in cities for non-local employees based on a basket of consumer goods and services such as groceries, clothing and leisure activities. However, house rents, cars, and school fees are not included in calculations as they are usually paid for by employers. This means they are unrelated to expats’ spending power.
