5 Largest Month-on-Month UK Hotel Price Increases
Price increases in the UK are less pronounced but still significant, with prices up by 20 per cent in Bournemouth (to an average of £89 per night) and 17 per cent in Bath (£140 per night).
Denise Bartlett, UK Public Relations: “Although it is common for hoteliers to increase their prices during the summer season, it is unusual to see such large price hikes from one month to the next. In the UK, travellers can expect to pay up to an average of £20 more for their hotel stay (for example, in Bath), whereas overseas some cities are an average of £61 more expensive (Monaco).
Venice, Amsterdam and Prague (three of the UK’s most popular overseas destinations) are showing some of the largest month-on-month price increases, demonstrating how British travellers can save a lot if they are aware of these price hikes.
