Glagow Hotel Prices Rise by 87% During Commonwealth Games
Posted by on Friday, May 16, 2014
An independent study has revealed that the average price of hotels in Glasgow have risen in the region of 87% for 4 days comparing two weeks prior to the Commonwealth Games against four days starting the day after the opening ceremony. An alternative option for those travelling to the games who still want to see other parts of Scotland might be to set up base in Edinburgh. When comparing the same two time periods for Edinburgh hotels, the average price only rose by 8%, the natural price rise as you move into the busier summer months. A day return from Edinburgh to Glasgow will only cost you in the region of £12 for a day return and takes an hour-and-a-half.
Edinburgh has previously hosted the games in the past but this will be the first time that Glasgow will be entertaining the world with world class performers in the multi-sport games event. Most of the stadia for the games are already in place and ready to go for the event and two of the main stadiums will be Scotland’s national stadium
, home of Glasgow Celtic Football Club, collectively they will host the opening and closing ceremonies, along with the Athletics which will be held at Hampden.
All in all the Commonwealth Games is sure to be an amazing event and will look to emulate the fantastic Olympics that London staged in 2012, and for those looking for a hotel bargain there may be some cost savings to be made for those who don’t mind a little commute to watch their favourite stars in action.
