Cheapest: 8 out of 10 in Europe
Eight of the ten cheapest holiday destinations this summer are located in Europe. These include long-term popular destinations such as Kefalos in Kos, which is the second cheapest global destination at an average of £34 per night. Other old favourites in the top ten are the Spanish island destinations of Las Palmas in Gran Canaria at £47 and Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife at £50.

Also among the ten cheapest are alternative holiday destinations such as Varna in Bulgaria, which is the third cheapest destination at an average of £41 per night. Other up-and-coming destinations include Ulcinj in Montenegro at £47 and Saranda in Albania at £48.

Most Expensive: 5 out of 10 Italian
Five out of the ten most expensive holiday destinations this summer are Italian. Sardinia is the most expensive Italian region, with Porto Cervo and Pula occupying the second and third spots at £417 and £377 per night respectively. Also in the top ten are Tuscany’s Forte dei Marmi and Monte Argentario at £295 and £291 respectively, followed by Capri at £219.

Denise Bartlett from trivago.co.uk says: “It’s great to see some of the up-and-coming Eastern European holiday destinations in Bulgaria, Montenegro and Albania among the ten cheapest destinations this summer. Holidaymakers can save money by avoiding the traditionally popular resorts of Southern Europe and heading here instead, where our results show it is possible to find accommodation for less than £50 per night. It’s also interesting to see how television exposure can affect prices in a destination such as Laguna Beach, which has been made popular in recent years by television series ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills’. Laguna Beach is the eighth most expensive destination worldwide this summer, with one night costing an average of £218.”

Prices are calculated from searches between 1st May and 30th June for travel between 1st July and 31st August 2013. All prices shown are the average price per night for a double room during this period. Prices for a standard double room are calculated on the basis of one million daily price inquiries for overnight hotel stays generated through the trivago hotel price comparison service. The price comparison service accesses prices from over 160 online travel agents and hotel chains, creating a comprehensive and accurate overview of the online hotel market.
