Lisbon over London – the safest EU cities for working professionals relocating after lockdown

The latest research by Spotahome, the international rental marketplace, has highlighted which of Europe’s most popular capital cities for working professionals is home to the best mix of rental affordability and safety; for those looking to move once travel lockdown restrictions have eased.

Spotahome attributed each city with a safety rental score, based on a combination of its safety rating and the monthly cost of renting an apartment in the city centre, to find which cities offered the most affordable option with the greatest peace of mind.

Lisbon tops the table with a very respectable safety index score of 72 and an average monthly rent of £803, resulting in an overall safety rental score of 11.1. The Spanish capital of Madrid ranks second, with a safety index score of 70 and an average monthly rent of £886 resulting in a score of 12.7 overall.

Other cities to rank highly include Berlin (13.9), Brussels (15.1) and Rome (17.5).

London remains one of the most popular cities in the world, but with a safety index score of 48 and an eye-watering average monthly rent of £1,762, the UK capital sits at the other end of the table scoring 37.1.

Perhaps more surprisingly, Dublin ranks just above London with an overall score of 30, just behind Paris (22.1).
