Switzerland's Geneva is home to the world's most expensive sandwich, according to Hotels.com's latest 'Club Sandwich Index.'
The firm claims that looking at the cost of a classic hotel sandwich made of chicken, bacon, egg, lettuce and mayonnaise as a barometer of affordability offers travelers an indication of the costs associated with their destination of choice.
Now in its third year, the Club Sandwich Index (CSI) is calculated from the prices guests paid for a club sandwich in 30 hotels, across five, four and three-star categories, in either the capital or an important tourist city in 28 surveyed countries. In total 840 hotels were canvassed globally.
And according to the 2014 CSI, Geneva has retained its top spot as home of the most expensive club sandwich in the world at $32.60.
Other pricey tourism hotspots include the gastronomic hub of Paris, which held on to the number two spot with an average price of $29.36, followed by Finland's Helsinki, where the price rose to $24.35 from $19.74 in 2013, knocking Norway's Oslo out of the top three.
