Geneva tops travel costs survey with average club sandwich price of £19.46 in city's hotels
Geneva has come out on top in a travel prices league table.
The Swiss city was number one in the latest Club Sandwich Index, designed to give holidaymakers a rough idea of the relative costs of various travel destinations.
While cheap travel insurance, flights and accommodation are all key priorities, many tourists may also be keen to compare prices of items at different locations before going ahead and booking a holiday.
A club sandwich typically costs £19.46 at a hotel in Geneva, the Hotels.com study revealed, compared to £17.53 in second-placed Paris.
The sandwich costs an average of £13.53 in London hotels, putting the English capital in fifth place behind Helsinki (£14.54), Stockholm (£14.36) and Oslo (£14.21).
India's capital New Delhi was the cheapest destination for a club sandwich in the study at £5.24, with Mexico City (£5.84), Buenos Aires (£6.19) and Bangkok (£7.15) not far behind.
The survey covered three, four and five star hotels in 28 destinations, with researchers accounting for prices at 30 hotels in each location before coming up with an average.
The website's spokeswoman Alison Couper said the club sandwich is the most common item on a hotel menu and acts as a handy comparison of costs in each country.
And she revealed that travellers' holiday money is stretching a bit further as club sandwich prices have fallen in most destinations.
The survey comes, meanwhile, as retailers and eateries across the UK are marking British Sandwich Week.
Running from May 11-17, the event organised by the British Sandwich Association is aiming to promote the benefits of both the sandwich and lunchbreaks in general under a theme of "Good for Everyone".
The Great Charity Lunch Munch is also being publicised as part of British Sandwich Week, with sellers donating portions of sales from sandwiches to charities of their choice.
