If you drive into London, one expense to consider must be parking fees. If you can find a parking space, the fees for a day about the city may total well over a hundred dollars. It is not unusual for people to pre-book for parking spaces, just like you would phone ahead to arrange for a room in a hotel. Therefore, it is not a surprise that London is the second most expensive city in the world.

What is surprising is that New York City is not in the top ten on the list.

There are no details about what data are collected and used. One traveler uses the ‘beer index’ to access a location – how much does it costs him for a glass of the local draft. – I guess it is all a matter of priorities.
