Tbh when on holiday I have a daily budget to spend on the slopes and evening for meals and drinks. We stick to the budget and once it's gone it's gone..... If you would spend £3.70p for a bottle of beer in uk on a night out why would u complain about 3 euro for a coke etc? It's no different.

Also as tony says, look at where your drinking, eating, location, view, surroundings....... Isn't this part of the experience.... Don't really see the point scrimping only not to enjoy myself. Work hard all yr and it's my time to relax and enjoy.....

I generally take X amount on hols and divide by 7. Theres my cash for the day, any left over gets pooled and we tend to spend it on extra beer

Can't say I would joyfully spend £3.70 on a bottled beer at home when you know you can buy a case for not much more!

I guess some people have been conditioned into accepting being ripped-off.

I think thta's why it's called a "night out", it's not solely about drinking your money's worth, so you either go out and spent 3.70 for a bottle or buy a case for the same money and stay home. Going out is expensive so are holidays in comparison with staying in and staying home, but we still go out and have holidays from time to time. It's not being conditioned. Price of beer in a night club is supposed to cover staff costs - bartenders, bouncers etc., and the costs of premises too.

Theres a big difference between buying cheap booze and having it at home and going out for a night. Its the "out" prices that I think we are comparing here.

Otherwise, I'd be paying £20 for 3 crates of decent beer with something like 12 bottles per crate.

No but it does indicate the crazy mark-ups.

The answer is don't pay it, if everyone stopped paying €3 for a coke they would drop the price, again another argument for driving and popping into the Valley supermarket for your essentials.
