Comparing the two tables, it was intriguing to see Krakow maintain its top spot as the best budget-friendly destination in Europe.
The Polish city proved the cheapest location on the list for a week-long stay (£652.40) and rental vehicles (£180.29) making the city a perfect budget-friendly winter destination. Their biggest attraction, Rynek Glowny, is also free to visit.
Berlin saw the biggest improvement in the past year, with the German capital climbing from 6th in 2021 to 2nd this time round.
Berlin was one of three cities that saw a decrease in the cost of car rentals (by £6.27); the city is also one of four cities that doesn't charge for its biggest attraction.
It was no surprise to see Amsterdam drop down in the ranking with the average cost of a week-long stay increasing by £597.86, making it the most expensive city to stay in on this list.
Amsterdam's rapid increase in costs has seen the destination fall from 7th in 2021's ranking to last place this time around.
Additionally, Vienna recorded an increase of 48 affordable restaurants whilst Copenhagen recorded a decrease of a whopping 118 cheap eateries.
Despite Copenhagen ranking 8th, the city was the only destination that saw a decrease in the average flight cost from Heathrow of £68.50. On the other hand, Budapest was the city with the highest rise in flight costs with an increase of £26.90.
