This could be one of the most important phrases for many travellers: “May I please have a beer?”

To make travel as easy as possible, the team at has put together is reference guide for international use.Cheapflights travel expert Ben Rosier said: “Few things get people round the table and talking like a cold beer; so, in the spirit of international understanding – and to ensure you don’t go thirsty in foreign climes – we’ve put together a guide to how to ask for a brew in over 20 countries around the world.

“So, whether you’re gasping in Greece, desperate in Denmark or thirsty in Tahiti; we’ve got just the phrase to ensure that you get some liquid refreshment fast. For those who might be in danger of getting tongue-tied there’s also a pronunciation guide; although we can’t vouch for how well you’ll be understood after a few of the stronger local options, so make sure you drink responsibly and take account of local customs. Cheers!”

Cheapflights’ tips on boozing when abroad:

  • Know how much you should tip, to avoid offending your waiter or waitress.
  • Don’t let your guard down too much and avoid getting wasted.
  • Be aware of local customs, laws and sensitivities around alcohol and where you drink.
  • Don’t take all your gear to the pub; have just the bare necessities and stow the rest of your belongings in the hotel safe.
  • If you’re travelling in a group get one person to be the (slightly more) responsible one who sticks to soft drinks and can guide the rest of you safely back to your accommodation.
  • Never leave your beer unattended.
