Study shows Singapore charges the most, Poland has affordable breakfasts.
ACCORDING to a study by Hotel Reservation Service (HRS), travellers spend an average €10 (RM45) for a hotel breakfast when the meal is not included in the room rate.
The difference in average price varies greatly by country. According to HRS, hotels in Singapore charge guests the most for breakfast (€16.86/RM76), while those in Poland offer the most affordable breakfasts (€6.40/RM29). Belgium (€15.05/RM68) and Switzerland (€16.05/RM72.50) are also among the nations where the morning meal sets traveLlers back the most.
The US and France were among the countries in the middle range, with average hotel breakfast prices of €10.63/RM48 and €11.23/RM50.75) respectively.
Currently, HRS reports, two thirds of hotels offer room rates that do not include breakfast. When planning a trip, the reservation service suggests, customers should be aware that a room priced at US$100 (RM326) per night without breakfast is not necessarily a better deal than one priced at US$110 (RM358) that includes the meal.
The conclusions of the study are based on the data from reservations made through HRS at 250,000 worldwide during 2013.
