If you are one of the growing numbers of people visiting Europe to celebrate a birthday, an engagement, a retirement or even to pop the question, the new Celebration Breaks Drinks Barometer from Post Office Travel Money will help you find a city where celebratory drinks will fit your budget. And if that budget is tight, the best advice is to head east because five Eastern European cities top the best value barometer table.
Key findings include:
- Prices are cheapest in Prague for 12 drinks ranging from beer, wine and brandy to cocktails and spirits
- Budapest, Krakow, Riga and Tallinn complete a clean sweep for Eastern European cities at the top of the barometer table
- In Western Europe the best value to be had is in Palma, although prices for the 12 drinks surveyed are only around £1 extra in Berlin and Amsterdam
