Brit expats all along the Spanish Costas are hoping bar owners will slash beer prices in an attempt to lure tourists back once the pandemic has run its deadly course.

Countries whose economies count tourism as an important contributor to their GDP are hoping against hope the pandemic will fade away before it’s done too much financial damage, a stance also taken by the large number of British expat owners of bars in Spain. The popular holiday destination has been one of the hardest-hit by the coronavirus, with its tourist industry now in tatters and British-owned bars and restaurants closed and shuttered.

Over the past few weeks, reports claiming an increase in enquiries about holidays in Spain have given hope that, once the country is fully open again, the tourists might return. Expats are also wishing for a return to normal before very long, but they’re also hoping against hope that the price of beer will halve in an attempt to attract more customers. One industry supplier’s take on this possibility is that bars in Benidorm might well slash the price of a pint by 50 per cent in a desperate attempt to attract holidaymakers.

The general opinion at the present time is that beer prices in bars will fall to at least the price charged in Spain’s supermarkets, as it’s one way to at least get businesses rebooted after the pandemic. According to suppliers, it’s all about volume of sales, with the larger bars discounting for a while and now prepared to accept offers from potential customers. Lesser brands are being supplied at cut prices, but one thing’s for certain in that beer is the number one ingredient hospitality sector businesses will use to get British tourists back to their favourite hangouts.
