“Whilst Europe continues to post flat growth year-to-date 2013, Southern Europe is the only region to post some positive results in revenue per available room in euro terms. The area grew 3.3 percent, which was driven by both occupancy and average daily rate increases”, said Elizabeth Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “Markets such as Istanbul, with at a 10.8-percent growth in YTD ADR, are helping drive this up. However, the recent unrest in Istanbul has put Turkey at a crossroads and critical juncture.  As preliminary daily figures in June show, demand has fallen in excess of 20 percent and if the situation continues and/or escalates, then I would expect to see displacement as we did in Egypt in 201, where the effects of that displaced demand are still impacting Egypt’s tourism recovery”.
