Dublin Ranked 22nd in Campsy 2017 Accommodation Price Index

Dublin Ranked 22nd in Campsy 2017 Accommodation Price Index

Germany-based campsite online booking platform Campsy has released a detailed study comparing the price of overnight accommodation in over 200 cities and regions. The Index, which includes 1-star to 5-star hotels, hostels, campsites, and peer-to-peer (P2P) accommodation services, showed that Kuala Lumpur tops the list for the most affordable accommodation in cities, while German regions are the cheapest and US regions are the most expensive.

Campsy undertook the research in order to better understand the overall landscape of the hospitality industry, as well as offer holidaymakers an in-depth view of which cities or regions may best suit their budget. With P2P rental services and younger specialist platforms such as Airbnb and Campsy offering accommodation options, the research aims to shed some light on the rapidly changing marketplace.

“Though the bulk of travel takes place on a city-to-city basis, we are passionate about encouraging travellers to step outside urban areas and seek the unique experiences that nature has to offer,” said Philipp Hillenbrand, Chief Executive. “We hope that our research empowers readers to gain more from their holiday budget this summer, and perhaps encourage camping as their accommodation of choice.”
