How Much Does Sun Cream Cost Abroad

One of the things I always forget to buy when travelling is sun cream, whereas often I have to pay an arm and a leg when I buy it abroad. I therefore thought I would have a look into the prices of sun cream in a number of different countries. The prices are based on estimates and averages and might vary from shop to shop, however I hope you find this useful.

London (UK) – Boots is a great place to get sun cream
Paphos (Cyprus) – more expensive in the touristy areas
Madrid (Spain) – look for supermarkets
Lagos (Algarve, Portugal)
Berlin (Germany) – unbelievably cheap!
Paris (France) – unbelievably expensive!
Barcelona (Spain) – Spain in general you should find is relatively cheap, however the price jumps nearer the beach
Dubrovnik (Croatia) – everything in general is a good price
Lisbon (Portugal) – surprisingly expensive
Munich (Germany) – pow! Another cheap German one
Dublin (Ireland) – probably the only item you will save money on, can’t believe how expensive the drinks are!
Nice (France) – same price as Paris, the price doesn’t drop
Athens (Greece) – Let’s just face it, everything will cost a lot in Greece
Cala d’Or (Majorca)
Lindos (Rhodes, Greece)
