Paris named most expensive city for a Club Sandwich, according to the Hotels.com
Club Sandwich Index (CSI)

The world’s most romantic city, Paris, has been named the most expensive city in the world to order a Club Sandwich, according to research released today by Hotels.com. The classic chicken, bacon, egg, lettuce and mayo sandwich, available in hotels the world over, has been used as a measure of affordability by the hotel expert. The Club Sandwich Index (CSI) will give holiday-makers an indication of the costs associated with their holiday destination, using one of the most common items on any hotel menu around the world as a barometer.

The CSI average price has been calculated by taking the real prices paid by guests for a Club Sandwich in 30 hotels in the capital city of each country measured. In total Hotels.com surveyed the Club Sandwich prices in 750 hotels in the five, four and three star category across 26 countries.
In the French capital, the CSI showed prices ranged from an extraordinary £33.44 for a ‘Club’ in a five-star hotel to a more reasonable £13.72 in a two star establishment, with the Paris average cost of a Club coming in at £20.43. The second most expensive city was found to be the Swiss city Geneva, where the sandwich costs an average of £20.10, followed closely by £18.83 for a Club in Oslo.

The UK took tenth position with an average Club coming in at just under twelve pounds (£11.55) and the cheapest sandwich available for just £6.50. In Spain, a favourite with British holidaymakers, a Club cost an average of £10 exactly, whilst in India, New Delhi (the cheapest city of those surveyed) one would set you back just £5.91 on average.

Alison Couper from Hotels.com said; “When planning a trip away, many holidaymakers don’t always factor the everyday costs of items including food and drink into their decision making process. By providing people with a Club Sandwich Index it is the perfect way for holidaymakers to assess a destination’s real cost! Paris may well be the gastronomic capital of the world but at an average £20.43 per Club, travellers may be better off sticking to a Croque-Monsieur...”

My previous uncertainty was due to lack of experience and information, but now I am pleased with my choice of switching to
wastewater treatment and recommend you the same.

Baltimore City, like sister region Baltimore County and other
areas around the country, are always in need of ways to reduce costs and expenditures.
In wastewater treatment, a p - H control system that uses a programmable p
- H controller and p - H probe to proportionally control the flow
of carbon dioxide injection decreasing the p - H
from a basic level to a programmable set point, can substantially
streamline any p - H adjustment process.
