What exactly would a date night cost you around the globe? I have the answers!


You guys know exactly how I feel about dating, not the seeing a whole lot of people dating but actually the idea of date nights and date day outings. They can bring the spark back or take you from friend zone to love zone depending on how well the date goes. So today I am teaming up with my friends over at  Angelic Diamonds retailers of bespoke palladium engagement rings, to share with you how much dates costs all around the world. Because you never know when you might find yourself on the opposite side of the globe and who knows if a gorgeous diamond ring will present itself *wink wink*.
Sometimes though, dates can be expensive and it can be hard to find a good location or venue on a budget. Which is what inspired this post. Not to mention that I will be off to Portugal soon and am doing tons of research. The type A planner in me is in list making heaven.
Whether it’s Rome, London, Paris or New York, there’s a perfect date out there for everyone, and who knows, it just might be the one that takes your relationship to the next level! we have gathered all the details on making the most of your date no matter where you are in the world. I have added both the Pound estimates and the ZAR estimates for my international and South African readers.
As the capital of Italy, Rome is brimming with 3,000 years of art, architecture and culture – making any date in this beautiful city one of romance and sophistication.

For the true fans

If your partner is looking for some excitement when you’re in the capital, and you’d really like to treat the pair of you, why not go to a A.S. Roma football match? At the grand Stadio Olimpico, you can buy a ticket for €100 (£88.02) ZAR 1683.45 . Just make sure you’re both football fans before you go, as it’ll be slightly awkward if one of you is bored when surrounded by screaming fans…

The people watchers

If you’re on a budget, then why not try taking a walk to the picturesque Trevi Fountain and throwing a spare penny in for good luck? Once you’re done, you could take a stroll to one of the many cafes nearby so that you can sit and people watch to your heart’s content.

The classic date

If you’ve got a bit of money to spend but don’t want to break the bank, why not try the classic dinner and cinema date? In Rome, you can expect to pay €21 (£18.48) ZAR 353,52 for your taxi and €57 (£50.17) ZAR 959,56 for your meal for two in one of Rome’s fine restaurants. To top it all off, you can spend €17 (£14.96) ZAR 286,19 on two cinema tickets.

London

London is a booming metropolis full of great shops, bars and restaurants that will keep you both entertained for more than just one date! If you want to enjoy this city properly, then you’ll need to know where to go. When it comes to dates in this city, the world really is your oyster.

Living the high-life

If you and your partner like to enjoy the finer things in life, then why not try afternoon tea at a prestigious London hotel? At £50 ZAR 841,72  per person, you and your date could enjoy tea, scones and sandwiches at the prestigious Claridge’s Hotel, in Mayfair. If you are both enjoying the pleasures of luxury, then why not book a superior queen room at £690 ZAR 11615,78 a night?

For the inquisitive

London isn’t just about fine-dining and luxurious hotels, it’s also full of great museums where you can learn more about the cultural history of London.
The Natural History Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and Tate Modern are all free to enter — they are perfect options for cultural visits that’ll get those brain cells exercised. Once you’re bored of the museum's, head over to Westminster Bridge to see Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. This also isn’t too far from the Southbank, where you can pick up some delicious street food or take in the great views all around you.

The classic date

Leicester Square has hosted many film premieres over the years, with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood descending on its red carpet to see in the release of their new blockbuster. If you’re not on the guest-list, then why not take your date to the cinema for £23 / ZAR387,19  ? If you get hungry, you can always get a meal including wine and dessert for £66 / ZAR 1111,07. Don’t forget to hit the bars on your way out, where a pint will typically set you back £4.41, and a cocktail will cost £9 / ZAR 151,51 – not bad when you’re living it up in the capital!


Paris

Paris is the true city of romance and my favorite city ever. Tourists come from far and wide to have a great time with their significant other, and this could be you too. Home to many of the world’s greatest writers and artists, Paris oozes chic everywhere you walk through its many streets.

Taking a date to new heights

Going on a date to the Eiffel Tower is an impressive feat any day of the year, but especially so on Valentine’s Day. On this day, why not try booking in at 58 Tour Eiffel? It’ll cost you around €120 (£105.63) / ZAR 2020,14 for each person, however, if you’d like a seat in the window to witness the spectacular views, then you can pay the extra €30 (£26.41) / ZAR  505,03 to really take your romance to dizzying heights!

Paris on a budget

The city is host to some of the most beautiful bridges in the world, which makes dating on a budget in this city very easy. As a symbol of their love for one another, many Parisians use padlocks and lock them to the Pont des Arts Bridge, throwing away the key into the water.
The locks can be purchased for a couple of euros each, so it’s probably the cheapest date that you’ll go on. Be warned though, as Paris officials are urging couples to stop so that the bridges can be protected; instead, why not take the lock home as a reminder of that great date you had together. I literally brought home a whole box of souvenirs.

The classic date

If the weather’s poor outside, or you’d rather take the tried and tested methods when it comes to your date, then why not head over to a quaint restaurant in the city? There, a meal for two including wine and dessert will typically cost around €65 (£57.21 ) / ZAR 1094,24 . Afterwards, if you head over to the cinema, it’ll cost you €20 (£17.60) / ZAR 336,69.


New York

If you can make it on a date here, then you can really make it anywhere. The big apple offers something for everyone- - with the theatres of Broadway, the neon-lit Times Square and skyscrapers like the Empire State Building, the possibilities really are endless.

Flying sky-high

If you want to pull out all of the stops for your date, then why not take them on a ride they’ll never forget? A private helicopter tour of New York’s famous landmarks will set you back around $1,500 (£1,184.40) / ZAR 25251,70 , so you’ll need to get saving if this sounds like the perfect date for you! With unparalleled views of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Central Park though, this is the perfect date to get your heart’s racing. Hold on tight!

Walk those famous streets

If you’d like to do something a bit more low-key, then take a twilight walk around Central Park like Audrey Hepburn did in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to really set the mood for the evening. Or, if you’re feeling peckish, you could go to the restaurant featured in Where Harry Met Sally; you’ll be quoting lines from the film in no time!
If that’s not enough, take a walk down to the financial district if you and your date want to feel part of the glamour and excitement of the Wolf of Wall Street. Just be careful, as it’s a jungle out there…

The classic date

Taking a trip to NYC wouldn’t be the same without going to the movies, so take your date at the typical cost of $28 (£22.11)/ ZAR 471,37. Perhaps a meal would complement this date nicely? Including wine and dessert, you can expect a meal for two to cost you $111 (£87.66) / ZAR 1868,63. After that, the two of you could paint the town red in some of Manhattan’s best rooftop bars. A cocktail will likely cost $14 (£11.06) / ZAR 235,68 and a pint of lager around $7 (£5.53) / ZAR  117,84. Enjoy!


I hope I covered it all or at the very least enough to get your travel date nights on the right path. With any traveling you have to do your research which is why I have created this post for you so you don’t have to do all of the guessing work.

Let me know if you will be traveling soon or what has been the best date you ever went on in the comments below.

  11. This is a really great idea for a post. And I like how you have covered the cheap and expensive options in the cities.
    I want to add Australia in there - movies here with popcorn etc would probably be about $100AUD by the time you purchase two movie tickets and food.
    And then if you want a nice cheap Japanese meal you could do that for two from $50-$100AUD. Living the high life a fancy dinner and a hotel room would probably be $500-$1000AUD.
