Protaras has the biggest hotel price decreases, reports trivago


trivago has compiled average values from more than 200 different online booking sites and revealed that Protaras has seen the biggest drop in Cyprus with a 30.1 per cent deduction in June hotel rates year-on-year.


With summer having now officially begun tourists have already started their first escapes, but for those still looking at where to stay the global hotel comparison website has compared average prices across the island to see where the best deals are currently at.


trivago stated that due to price cuts across the industry Cyprus has become much more affordable compared to last year with the lowest reductions at Limassol (three per cent).


Behind Protaras with the highest reductions is Kakopetria where prices are lower by 13 per cent. Pafos follows where the average nightly rate last year was to €116, while this year it is at €106, or 8.6 per cent less.


Agia Napa witnessed a 7.2 per cent decrease comparing June year-on-year, while Larnaka was the only region to have an increase (9.3 per cent).


On a monthly basis when comparing May and June 2015, both increases and decreases appeared with the overall average price amounting to €106 in June, only seven per cent higher than the previous month. Limassol (5.5 per cent), Pafos (2.9 per cent) and Larnaka (9.3 per cent) saw increases. Agia Napa proved to be the exception with a large 30.3 per cent price increase, where the average nightly rate is at €129, which is €30 more expensive than May.


Kakopetria (3.2 per cent) and Protaras (5.7 per cent) were the only regions to see decreases from May to June.
