Moneycorp, a currency exchange company, has compiled this nifty table on the cost of getting from major international airports in Europe and the rest of the world to the city centres.

Copenhagen, the Danish capital, is priciest, at almost £7 per mile. Geneva is in second place with a cost per mile of £6 and Tokyo is in third. A taxi ride to the centre of the city costs about £191.48, a cost per mile of £4.70. However, Narita is nearly 70km from Tokyo.

At the other end of the table, getting to Munich is cheapest at £2.20 per mile.
