New Hotel Study Shows How Much Visitors Pay for Stays in U.S.
In a recent Hotels.com study, the website figured out how much other nationalities pay to stay at in the United States while traveling.
According to the Hotels.com Hotel Price Index, the study revealed the biggest spenders, the more prudent spenders and how much they each pay when traveling. The top spenders in the U.S. were visitors from South Africa, who spent an average of $207 a night.
Rounding out the top five were visitors from Japan, Norway, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, respectively. Hotels.com travel expert Taylor L. Cole said, “Interestingly enough, the gap between the highest and lowest spenders has a difference of $87 for just one night's stay.”
For travelers from Canada, the U.K. and Australia, the most popular destination in the U.S. is still New York City, and the visitors spending the most money in America hail from Australia, Argentina and the Philippines, with South Africa, Japan, Norway, the U.K. and Switzerland not far behind.
As far as which travelers are spending less, visitors from Venezuela, Honduras and Costa Rica saved the most money during their trips to the U.S. last year.
Here are the average prices paid by visitors from last year and in 2015, via Hotels.com:
