RUGBY FANS HEADING to Cardiff for this weekend’s world cup quarter-finals at the Millennium Stadium face paying an average of €1,664 for a hotel room.

Hotel search website Trivago has said prices have soared ahead of the match, with the average price for Saturday now 960% higher than the Welsh capital’s monthly average of €157.

The data is based on searches between 1 January and 12 October this year. It shows the average price of a room on Sunday night is €702, again significantly higher than the monthly average.

Trivago’s David Lintott described the increases as “unprecedented” and “the most extreme we have ever reported for a UK event”.

“Earlier this month, trivago reported that a night in London during the Rugby World Cup would cost an average of €326,” he said.

“At €1,664, the average price for a hotel room in Cardiff ahead of Ireland’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final is 410% higher than the London average – despite London being the UK’s most expensive city for a hotel stay.”
