A unique price index which gives travellers an indication of how expensive different countries are has found Singapore to be the 18th most pricey country in which to buy a club sandwich.

The Club Sandwich Index, or CSI, is an annual list provided by Hotels.com for holidaymakers, and can be used by anyone – including HR professionals in charge of relocation management – to assess the general cost of various destinations.

This year, Singapore came in at 18th place, down one spot from last year’s ranking, with a club sandwich costing an average of S$19.28.

The most expensive city was Geneva, Switzerland, where a club sandwich will set you back a whopping S$40.91. Coming in at second place was Paris at S$36.86, followed by Helsinki, Finland, at S$30.57.

New Delhi in India remained the cheapest place for a club sandwich, costing just S$11.02.

The Index, which is in its third year of publication, reflects the actual average price of a club sandwich based off real prices paid by guests in 30 hotels – five, four and three stars – in either the country’s capital or popular tourist destination. This also reflects the effect of currency fluctuations each year.

A total 840 hotels were canvassed globally.
