Cordoba enjoys bumper Easter bookings

THE later than usual Easter break has provided Spain’s tourism industry with an unexpected windfall.

Cordoba enjoyed 79 per cent hotel occupancy throughout Holy Week as visitors extended their holiday into May, with the average nightly rate up 93.66 per cent on last year.

Tourism income in the city was up six per cent from 2010 over the holiday period, with the closer proximity to summer believed to be the main reason behind the surge.

So far in May, Cordoba’s average room rate is 84.62 euros, against an average of 46.36 euros in May last year.

The figures were revealed as part of the HotelsCombined.com Price Index, which collates figures from hotels around the world.

Director of Business, Yury Glikin, said: “The small date shift of Easter caused a spike in revenue for hoteliers, something that might have been overlooked in the past.”
