Glasgow hotel prices more than double for Commonwealth Games

Glasgow hotel prices more than double for Commonwealth Games

Glasgow hotel prices have risen by 158% thanks to the city's hosting of the Commonwealth Games.

This means that a hotel room will now cost an average of £344 for the Games period of 23 July to 4 August, according to the trivago Hotel Price Index (tHPI) for July. This is compared to an average of £133 for the week previous, and is a significant increase on this time last year, when a hotel room in Glasgow cost an average of just £78.

The stadium, which has received a £14m overhaul, will host athletics events including the men's 5,000 metres, in which Mo Farah is rumoured to be competing.

May saw the largest increase in interest in the city's hotels - a rise of 104% â€' and in June, searches increased by a further 13%. Unsurprisingly, hotel availability is expected to drop in the city by 75% in the same time.

The study discovered a host of other price findings, including that hotel prices across summer holiday destinations have risen by 102%, and that hotel prices in the UK have increased by up to 19% in anticipation of forthcoming staycations.

The largest UK rises between June to July was in Torquay (19%; £81 to £96), followed by Newquay (12%; £98 to £110), and Bournemouth (11%; £89 to £99).
