The report also showed that accommodation prices in the UAE and Saudi Arabia have declined up to 4% and 9%.
The Vice President Isabelle Pinson, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Hotels.com said that “Although hotel prices rose for travelers globally in 2017. Arab travelers enjoyed great value for money in the UAE, KSA Thailand and USA due to the decrease in daily room rates in these destinations.”
The President of Hotels.com Johan Svanstrom said that “The slight increase in average accommodation prices globally combined with numerous markets having record visitor growth, signals a strong travel economy and a growing desire from consumers to experience the world.”
