Numbeo is trash.


Rent in London is slightly more expensive and public transport is a lot more expensive in London. Grocery is more expensive in Paris.

Overall, London is worse.

As mentioned above, any "study" is a rough guide.

You have to determine your own budget and do a neighborhood-by-neighborhood analysis.

Just for example, some years ago I did my own analysis of 3 bedroom apartments in select neighborhoods of San Francisco, Manhattan and Rome. San Francisco turned out to be the most expensive.

But change the parameters and the result may be different.

Set your own and do the math.

Good Luck!

"Lets say the job and salary is the same" I'm not sure you can make that generalisation. It's far more complicated as different professions will be paid differently for all sorts of reaons

Oyster cards have a daily cap and the average London bus fare is £1.50 and quite low by national standards.

It also depends on where you live in London and Paris and both cities are expensive.

For every pound Transport for London receive, around 79% is spent on the everyday running costs of the network and around 21% on improving it for the future.
