Hotels.com research reveals price inflation for UK outbound travelers


UK travelers paid more for hotel rooms overseas in 90% of 100 most popular international destinations last year over 2015, research released today reveals.

The average price paid by British holidaymakers for accommodation in 2016 at top outbound destinations was £100, compared to £92 the year before as the value of the pound fell to a six-year post-Brexit vote low against most major currencies.

Many of these increases affected travelers to Europe, with top cities including Dublin (up from £95 to £114), Barcelona (from £97 to £112) and Reykjavik (from £96 to £130), all showing significant price increases from the previous year.

The US, Spain and France ranked as the top three most visited countries from the UK last year.
