The 41-mile journey, however, was not the most expensive when ranked on cost by distance travelled.

THE highest was Copenhagen, where a five-mile journey costs an average of €40.04 or €8.60 per mile.

Dublin by comparison comes in at €2.86 per mile or a total of €24.90 ranking 12th in the survey by Moneycorp, a currency exchange firm.

The research pitted the cost of the taxi journeys from major international airports in Europe and the rest of the world to city centres.
