The end of the summer season has brought considerably lower hotel prices across Europe, statistics released by Trivago October 14 have shown. 

The average price for a standard double in Europe this month is €127, Trivago said, a fall of seven percent on September and a widespread trend seen across 35 of the 50 top European cities tracked.

Significant falls of 18 percent were seen in Barcelona (€147) and Milan (€161), Trivago said, with 15 percent drops in Copenhagen (€142), Geneva (€253) and Amsterdam (€161).

Brussels and Dublin fell by 11 percent to €135 and €96 respectively, while Budapest and Lisbon fell by nine percent to €78 and €118 respectively.

Customers planning a late-autumn trip to popular destinations such as the south of France, the Balearics, Portugal or the Greek islands could also save money, calculated TripAdvisor, with a night in Cannes 22 percent cheaper than last month at €123 and a night in Nice 19 percent cheaper at €108.

For the first time in months, Geneva lost the title of Europe's most expensive city, to Venice, while the cheapest destination indexed by Trivago was Sofia, a steal at just €72 a night.
