The study, commissioned by the online booking platform Campsy, shows which world cities and regions offer the most and least expensive accommodation, from 5 star hotels to hostels, shared accommodation sites such as Airbnb and camping aggregators such as Campsy.

The five least expensive cities are Kuala Lumpur, the cheapest, followed by Skopje, Tirana, Antalya and Sofia. Among most expensive were Monte Carlo, St Tropez, Reykjavik, San Francisco and New York.

The Index includes 1 to 5 star hotels, hostels, campsites, and peer-to-peer (P2P) accommodation services. Campsy undertook the research in order to better understand the overall landscape of the hospitality industry, as well as offer holidaymakers an in-depth view of which cities or regions may best suit their budget.

“Though the bulk of travel takes place on a city-to-city basis, we are passionate about encouraging travelers to step outside urban areas and seek the unique experiences that nature has to offer,” Campsy CEO Philipp Hillenbrand told the press. “We hope that our research empowers readers to gain more from their holiday budget this summer, and perhaps encourage camping as their accommodation of choice.”
