The world's most expensive holiday destinations are revealed in a new ranking from the airport transfer website Hoppa.

To make its ranking, Hoppa added up the total of six travel expenses — including a 3-kilometre taxi journey, a night's stay at a hotel per person, and a meal — to find the average cost per person for a day trip in each destination.

The cost of a pint of beer, a cup of coffee, and a bottle of wine were also taken into account.

Pricy destinations included both coastal locations in Central America as well as European capital cities.

Here are the 19 most expensive cities to visit, along with a breakdown of travel expenses in each place.
