If you have a hankering for a club sandwich in Geneva, expect to pay $30.45. Hungry in New Delhi? You'll fork over $9.11.
Those are the results of the Club Sandwich Index. It's the second year the online booking site Hotels.com has created the index, which compares a number of cities' average cost of the chicken, bacon, egg, lettuce and mayonnaise sandwich as a cost-of-living indicator for travelers.
Paris, Oslo and Stockholm came in second, third and fourth at $27.45, 26.72 and $23.12, respectively, and New York's price of $17.51 ranked 13th of the 28 locations surveyed.
The club sandwich isn't the only food index out there -- and it really isn't about the food either. The index shows the strength or weakness of currencies at a particular point; for travelers, food-cost comparisons are a useful indicator of where their dollars will go farthest.
