Cape Town - Few things get people round the table and talking like a cold beer. Therefore, in the spirit of international understanding – and to ensure you don’t go thirsty in foreign climes – Cheapflights put together a guide on how to ask for a cold one in over 20 countries around the world.

Whether you’re looking to knock a few back in Greece, or find yourself thirsty in Tahiti; we've got you sorted on the phrase you need to remember to ensure that you get some liquid gold, says Cheapflights Travel Expert Ben Rosier.  

For those who might be in danger of getting tongue-tied there’s also a pronunciation guide. Prost!

However good the beer is abroad, you should always keep these ethical, cultural and safety guidelines in mind:
- 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.
- 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.

It is important to have  great fun while on holiday, but please remember to drink responsibly!
