According to the tHPI (the trivago Hotel Price Index), hotel prices rose during September, but this has been offset by a decrease in October, both in the UK and across Europe. In September, the average European short trip that would have cost $140 has fallen to around $129 this month. This represents an average drop of around six percent. Only a few city destinations increased their rates. While many European cities have dropped their rates to entice half-term visitors, they can be chilly. However, Barcelona is not the only option for getting a tan, as the beach resorts of Cyprus and Portugal have also reduced their prices by around 11 percent. However, they are left in the shade by Greece. By booking cheap flights to Rhodes or Corfu, sun-seekers can save around 16 percent on last month’s prices.
