Hotels.com Hotel Price Index™ 2017
  • The Hotel Price Index Around the World

The Hotels.com Hotel Price Index was set at 100 in 2004. Here the movement in the Index since then is shown on a global and regional basis.

More in-depth analysis into hotel prices paid in 2015 in individual destinations and the reasons behind any changes can be found below and in related posts.

 

Slight global rise

  • The good news for consumers is that the global Index rose only 1% in 2015, when compared with 2014, to 114 points.
  • It hit its peak of 117 in 2007, the year before the global economic crisis, so it is closing the gap.
  • Amongst the individual regions of the world, North America was the only one to rise. The Caribbean and Europe & the Middle East showed no growth, while the Pacific, Latin America and particularly Asia all fell.

North American record-breaker

  • Driving the global rise, North America was the only region to see an increase in its Index in 2015, up 3% to 119.
  • Although it has risen every year since 2010, the North American Index has only now beaten its 2007 peak of 117 for the first time.

No growth for the Caribbean

  • The Caribbean Index recorded no growth in 2016.
  • In spite of this, it remained well ahead of the other regions on 137.

No movement for Europe & the Middle East

  • Zero growth was also logged by the Europe & Middle East Index.
  • It held steady at its 2014 level of 108, eight points behind its peak of 116 in 2007.

Slight fall in the Pacific

  • The Pacific regional HPI saw a slight 1% decrease, taking it to 122.
  • This was the same level as in 2013 and was the first yearly fall since 2009.

Latin America also down

  • A 2% drop took the Latin American Index to 128.
  • However, it remained the second highest regional Index, behind the Caribbean.

Asia the best value

  • Hotel prices paid in Asia overall fell 5% in 2015 compared with 2014, the highest decrease amongst all the regions.
  • This took the Asian Index to 99, the first time ever that the region has been behind its 2004 starting point.
