FCM Consulting Forecasts a 3-8% Increase in Average Hotel Room Rates
Hotel occupancy levels across the world have averaged 68% per month in 2023. Over the last 6 months, corporate ARRs have plateaued signalling rate stability. However, hotels are forcing a 3-8 per cent increase in 2024 due to rising operating costs and sustainability investments.

“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.
