Where was the best place for luxury for less?
High end… low cost
There were several destinations both abroad and at home where UK travellers paid less to enjoy 4 and 5-star accommodation in 2017 than the previous year.
Minorca in the Mediterranean and Koh Phi Phi off the coat of Thailand may be on opposite sides of the world but they both saw a 22% fall in the average price Brits paid for their 5 star accommodation.
The average price of 4 and 5 star places in a few destinations in the UK also saw double digit decreases. Blackpool with the largest, dropping 17%.
The slight fall in international visitor numbers to New Orleans in 2017 saw its 5 star average down 10%.
