Hungarian capital Budapest is the cheapest destination for UK couples to have a romantic getaway, according to a new study.
Experts at relationship site eHarmony.co.uk and travel search engine Skyscanner analysed the typical costs involved with a date across the 20 most populous European cities, including a meal, flowers, chocolates and hotel room, with average flights prices to these destinations from UK airports. The results reveal that Budapest offers the best value ‘datecation’ in Europe.
On average, a two night Budapest break will set you back £390, with a three star hotel room costing just £36 and a quality three course meal for two with a bottle of house white coming to £31. Twelve red roses and a box of chocolates come to £38 and travel around the city for two totals £8. Finally, return flights for two add on £277.
In fact, according to Skyscanner flight price data, it is cheaper to fly from a UK airport to Budapest and have a date there (£390 for all elements above with flights included) than it would be for people within the UK to travel to London for a romantic rendezvous (£547).
Following Budapest is Warsaw, with a weekend in the Polish capital coming to £394 overall. Belgian capital Brussels rounds out the top three cheapest cities, with it costing £413 in total to take a partner abroad. The average cost across the continent for an evening out as a couple is £500.
