Why are some travellers paying more for hotel accommodation?

The average price of a standard hotel room in Britain has risen by more than a third since 2010, according to a new report from The TripAdvisor Travel Service.

The report, based on data from the UK’s Office of National Statistics, found that in the first three months of this year, the average price for a standard room in the country’s major hotels had risen by 2.5% compared to the same period in 2014.

While that’s a fall of almost a third, the figures are still far higher than the average rate of inflation.

And while the overall increase has been modest, the UK has been among the most expensive places to stay in Europe, which means that it’s actually cheaper to stay at a hotel in the UK than in most other major European countries.
