New research reveals the difference in price between a pint of beer in the UK and Kenya

Beer
A pint of beer in the UK will cost you 3 times more than in Kenya, according to new research.

The cost of a pint of beer in London is more than triple what you will pay in Nairobi, according to new research from Finder UK.

Data released by the comparison site reveals that while in Kenya a pint on average costs £1.57, in the UK the same drink will set you back £4.76, more than three times as much.

The research also showed that a London beer is more expensive than one in Sydney, Toronto, Tokyo, Shanghai and Berlin.

Finder UK Chief Executive Jon Ostler said: “It was interesting to see such a wide difference between how much it costs for a pint in different cities around the world.

“Some people may not realise that there could be big differences in costs of common expenses between cities.

“When budgeting for family holidays or weekend breaks, it’s important to factor in leisure expenses and anticipate that prices will vary from city to city.

“By doing your research in advance you will not only be prepared financially, but avoid unnecessary stress and allow for a more enjoyable holiday.”
