  • Luxury for less

Australian travellers paid significantly less to stay in 4-star and 5-star accommodation around the world in 2016 for a variety of reasons.

  • Milan was host to the World Expo in 2015, welcoming more than 20 million visitors, and much of the drop in its 4-star average can be explained by prices returning to more customary levels in 2016.
  • Istanbul suffered political and security instability during the year, which deterred many visitors, and average prices dropped accordingly in both categories.
  • France was also hit by dropping visitor numbers, amidst security concerns, which impacted Paris in particular.
