We Brits love nothing more than a good holiday – especially if it involves sunny weather and cheap pints.
With the cost of living in the UK skyrocketing, many of us have had to forgo pub trips as the cost of a tipple is higher than ever.
In fact, research from Finder shows that the average cost of a beer is now £5.99 in London.

But, the cost of a pint varies around the world from just 67p all the way up to £9.98 in Qatar.
The UK price – which was based on London as the most expensive area – is a whopping double the average cost of a beer around the world.

Each of the cheapest five destinations comes in at under a quid a pint.
We would warn travel enthusiasts to check the current FCDO guidelines before booking a trip abroad especially when travelling to less common destinations, as entry rules and travel advice can often change quickly.
