FCM Consulting Forecasts a 3-8% Increase in Average Hotel Room Rates

Worldwide hotel occupancy rates have maintained an average of 68% monthly throughout 2023. Corporate Average Room Rates (ARRs) have steadied over the past 6 months, indicating rate stability. Despite this, hotels are planning a 3-8% increase in 2024, driven by escalating operating expenses and investments in sustainability.

“To counter the increase in prices while managing reduced travel budgets, we have several solutions for our clients such as changing options to stay within budget, consolidating suppliers for leverage, and considering lower ‘star ratings’ expectations without compromising on service and quality, said Bertrand Saillet, Managing Director of FCM Travel Asia.
