When you go on vacation, the costs of eating out can quickly add up. However, the prices of individual items can vary across the globe, making some destinations significantly cheaper to visit than others.
If you want to find the cheapest place to get a glass of wine or the most expensive location for a burger, you can check out the latest Club Sandwich Index from Hotels.com. This index looks at four food and drink options typically chosen by hotel guests on an average day and compares the prices in different cities. The items are a burger meal, a club sandwich, a cup of coffee, and a glass of house red wine.
This year’s results found that Geneva sold the most expensive club sandwiches and was the priciest location for a full day of dining. Bogota, Colombia, was the cheapest place to eat throughout the day. Burger lovers should stick to South America, with Bogota, Mexico City, and Rio de Janeiro being the cheapest along with Bangkok, Thailand.
Some of the most expensive destinations for a cup of coffee were in Asia, particularly Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Taipei. Guests looking at places to stay in Paris will find that they are paying the most for a glass of red wine. Those looking for the cheapest glass of wine will have to head for Madrid.
Wherever you decide to head this summer, make sure you arm yourself with all the facts so that you don’t end up paying more than you should.
