However, Albania, Belarus, Iceland, Jersey, Kosovo, Latvia, Luxembourg, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia were not included due to limited city-level data.
Andrea Knowles, personal finance expert from Vouchers.co.uk said: “With the rising cost of living, it’s fair to say that lots of us are feeling the pinch. The price of everything seems to keep going up and up, and this includes your favourite tipple – and this seems to be the case whether you are visiting your local pub or looking for a refreshment whilst on holiday.”
Knowles added: “Whilst not all of these locations will be top of the list for holidaymakers this year, our analysis does well to show overall where holidaymakers can get the most bang for their buck when it comes to beer prices around the continent”.
