Hotels.com_ObviousChoice_RGB_center_1Ever wondered how much other nationalities pay to stay in the U.S.? Hotels.com® recently revealed the big spenders, the more prudent spenders, and how much they each splash out when traveling.

According to the latest Hotels.com® Hotel Price Index™ (HPI®), visitors from South Africa spent the most to stay in the U.S. in 2015, followed by Japan in second place with three European nations tied in third: Norway, the U.K. and Switzerland.

“Interestingly enough, the gap between the highest and lowest spenders has a difference of $87 for just one night’s stay,” saidTaylor L. Cole, APR, travel expert for Hotels.com.

Who is visiting the U.S.: in spite of a relatively high price per room per night and a stronger U.S. dollar, the Big Apple remains the most popular destination for Canada, the U.K. and Australia over many other international cities.

Who is spending the most to come to the U.S.: an eclectic mix of nations made it in the Top 10 with travelers from Australia, Argentina and the Philippines in addition to our visitors from South Africa, Japan, Norway, the U.K. and Switzerland.

Who is spending the least: travelers from Central America, including Venezuela, Honduras and Costa Rica, managed to stretch their budgets the furthest for a night’s stay in the U.S.
