Germany delivers on value for money

Inline images 1

Travelling in Germany has been proven to be fantastic value for money, according to data from the German Hotel Association (IHA). Guests in German hotels can expect first class facilities along with good service, all at excellent value for money compared with similar options in other European destinations.

Comparing accommodation within Europe, German hotel prices score well below the average. This may account for the fact that overnight stays in Germany have risen continuously for the past three years. Germany's Federal Statistical Office reports 68.8 million overnight stays in 2012 - a further increase of 8.1% compared to the previous year.

"Due to the generally prevailing economic troubles, price sensibility amongst travellers has increased in almost all European countries," states Petra Hedorfer, Chief Executive Officer of the German National Tourist Board (GNTB). "Attractive competitive prices make a difference when choosing a travel destination – this is where Germany will always score highly."

Room rates within Europe have risen in 2012 by 4.7% to 104 Euro, whereas in Germany they have only risen by 3.4% and an average rate of 94 Euro. Especially in Germany's popular cities, hotel rates are far below other European destinations. According to research by the IHA/STR Global 2013, visitors to Hamburg will pay 103 euro on average for a room, and 117 euro in Frankfurt.

Overall, visitor satisfaction is also high – in the results of GNTB/ERV's quality monitor 2011/2012 Germany's value for money ratio was given excellent scores by holiday makers and business travellers alike.
