HOTELS and tourist flats on the Costa del Sol are offering discounts as tourism is threatened by decreasing rates of housing in other tourist hotspots, such as those in Turkey and Bulgaria.

In Marmaris, Turkey, a seaside resort, prices have gone down by an impressive 36%, making it the cheapest family vacation spot for this summer according to recent research. The cost of tourist activities around the area have also decreased accordingly to reflect this change, making it extremely affordable for British vacationers to travel, eat, and enjoy their time in the country.

The second cheapest vacation area was found to be Sunny Beach, Bulgaria, in which prices for vacationing have also decreased by 6.4%.

As such, tourism from the United Kingdom to the Costa del Sol has decreased as well, which president of Turismo Costa del Sol, Elías Bendodo, believes is due to competing markets.

In the first five months of 2018, the number of tourists from the UK arriving at Malaga airport has decreased by 4.7%, and the number of British tourists staying in hotels and tourist flats has decreased by 4.1%.
