  1. I'm from the UK. I'm not a Londoner (& with it being the Capital, you can expect higher prices) but as someone who is working I can't say I consider it expensive all over the country.

  2. I've been in almost all these countries and Switzerland is the most expensive but the salaries are aswell the best so no complains 😁

  3. Not too surprised that Denmark made the cut, I mean I live there and all I can say is, "Man do I save a lot when travelling internationally". It still kinda shocks me when I buy something abroad and convert the currency there back to Danish kroner and find out just how cheap it is. Then again many of those places don't exactly have the same things as Denmark like the tax paid health care or education or whatever.

  4. Hold on a minute – all the countries on this list are expensive because they work hard. They have remained stable not just for a hundred years but for nearly a thousand years,

  5. Now you tell me about Ireland. I was there earlier this year i was surely unprepared for my trip there.Doesn't mean i didn't enjoy it. Love the emerlad isle.

  6. Skiing in Luxembourg!! I think Mojo needs to get their facts right. I don't think a proper mountain can fit in this tiny country.

  7. Been to most of those places and Iceland is as magical as is expensive! Norway is by far my favourite though ❤️🇳🇴

  8. Finland ❤️ omg.. i love that place but expensive is just my 2nd problem next to the cold. Im not sure i would come back again on winter time. But at least i’ve seen the northern lights.

  9. Norwegians do waste a lot of food. A lot. In fact, it’s one of the country that wastes more food in average per capita. People literally throw one-day food.

  10. Fake news! No France or Belgium. The shots of the taxis in Finland are actually shots of London taxis parked by Kings Cross train station. Fake news! Who are Mojo?! Number 1 thing if your thinking of moving to a country. Make sure you learn the language quickly or you already speak the language. Nothing worse than being disconnected from what’s going on.

  11. I grew up in UK, Switzerland, Germany and visited every country in Europe several times. I agree with your list. My vote for best value for money would be Spain, Portugal, Italy, Slovenia but they would be top of the most inexpensive countries in Europe. Maybe that is your next featured video.

  12. The cost of dry cleaning is 50 dollars? That sentence conveys no information. Dry cleaning what and how much? It’s like saying groceries cost fifty dollars in Sweden.

  13. In my opinion, All the Nordics are expensive. Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Apart from this, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, The Netherlands and Austria.

  14. The Tech Industry is ruining the cost of living all over the world. I just left the San Francisco Bay Area because it's unlivable due to the Tech Companies causing the cost of living to spiral out of control. It's sad to see it happening in other countries too.
