November's Algarve hotel figures - British continue to disappoint

SilvesParkThe average overall occupancy rate for the Algarve’s hotels in November was 45.3%, a drop of 1.8% on November 2016.

According to data from the region’s hotels association, AHETA, the reason for the drop was a lack of British, which was blamed on Brexit and the fall in the exchange rate.

British visitors were down 4.1% with the Germans up 0.9% and the Irish and Dutch showing small gains.

The largest decrease in occupancy was in Monte Gordo - VRSA where numbers were down a full 12% and the Vilamoura - Quarteira - Quinta do Lago are showing losses of 11.2%.

Albufeira, the main tourist area for the Algarve region, registered a drop of 3%.

According to AHETA's monthly bulletin, the main increases were in Tavira, up a healthy 5.8% and Faro - Olhão up 4.3%.

Yes, you are quite right. Not Brexit but the greedy action of airline companies after the collapse od Monarch. I had a client in early October from Britain who had been hit by Monach and no money back. Her choice was to pay £250 for new flight or loose the holiday.for those prices it wasn't even half term when the airlines do cane you.
Even now the prices are exorbitant.

RG is quite right, the flight prices are not sufficient enticement right now. I too have found outward for €30 and return for well over €200, even after juggling with dates. Seems Jet2 are trying to cash in on the Monarch collapse, but it will backfire. However, I would rather stay at home than fly Ryanair!

Also a reduction in flights with Monarch out of the picture and Ryanair reducing their flights

Don’t blame Brexit or even the exchange rate. Blame the airlines for putting the prices up! I mean how can you charge £30 out and £230 back in November? Never prices so high for this time of the year.
