IF YOU’RE CONSIDERING a trip to Paris and you get a little peckish while you’re there, you might need to dig deep to afford a nice sandwich.
The newly revealed Club Sandwich Index (CSI) shows that the French capital is not only the most romantic city in the world, it’s also the most expensive. At least when it comes to a club sandwich. The classic chicken, bacon, egg, lettuce and mayonnaise treat will set you back €44.63 in a five-star hotel, while a two-star establishment will charge you a meagre €17.
The average price for the sandwich in Paris meanwhile is €25.43.
Dublin comes off pretty well in the survey… considering the prices in Paris. A club sandwich prepared in a Dublin hotel will set you back just under €12 on average. This puts the Irish capital in 20th stop on the list of 26 countries surveyed – or seventh cheapest.
The CSI is designed to give holiday-makers an indication of the costs associated with their holiday destination, using one of the most common items on any hotel menu around the world as a barometer. Thirty hotels in each capital or major city across various star rating categories were examined.
Geneva was the second most expensive city with an average price of €25.02. Oslo is in third place followed by Tokyo and Rome.
