TAGS: Tourism

The average rate for a double room in Greece for August is currently 148 euros, according to the Hotel Price Index compiled by online hotel search site Trivago.

This is slightly higher than the average in Spain, which was 132 euros, and Portugal, where it reached 128 euros.

In comparison, the same room in Turkey now costs just 89 euros, after hotels in the neighboring country reduced their rates in the wake of recent terrorist attacks and the failed military coup.

The average price for a double room in Athens is currently 95 euros, according to Trivago. For Lisbon it is 115 euros, Madrid 84 euros and Istanbul 72 euros.
