Sick of never getting change back from a tenner at the bar?
Why not book a holiday instead?
Brexit is squeezing the pound, throwing the NHS into turmoil, could ruin our music industry, and all the while is being led by politicians who seemingly have no idea what they’re doing.
Plenty of us are going to need a beer every now and then just to take the edge off, but some of the cheapest pints can actually be found in the EU.
FX comparison site Travelex pooled data from the Office for National Statistics and its own currency exchange rates to determine the average cost of a beer in tourist hot-spots for British holidaymakers, and found that there are still great deals to be had in Europe.
The UK is still one of the most expensive places to buy a beer with an average retail value of £3.50, more than three times the cost of a pint in Bulgaria.
Now no one’s saying you should plan your summer holiday around the cheapest places to buy alcohol.
But when you can grab a pint in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria, and still get change back from a £1 coin, it’s definitely something to think about.
So when you’re in need of a cold one, make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. From Bulgaria to Barbados, these are the cheapest places for a pint across the globe.
Cost in Euros: €2.00
Cost in GBP: £1.80
