What would you do for love? Well if you live in Victoria, you better start shelling out the cash. A new study by EliteSingles found the province’s capital city has the fourth most expensive date night in Canada.
According to the study, a typical date night — consisting of mid-range dinner for two, a shared bottle of wine, two movie tickets and an 8 km taxi ride home — costs $133 in Victoria.
We come in just after the cost of a date in Toronto at $150, Vancouver at $149 and Ottawa at $138.
Victoria is $6 more expensive than the average Canadian date night ($127) and $21 more than the cheapest place on the list, Quebec City where the same date night would cost you $112.
Surprisingly, following Victoria, the next most expensive city for a romantic night is in the not-so-romantic capital of Alberta — Edmonton, at $131.
On a global scale, Oslo, Norway was the most expensive city in the world for a date at a shocking $211. London, UK took second place at $188 and Washington DC is the world’s third most expensive city for a date at $188.
