Heading out on summer vacation soon? We’re guessing you’re probably looking for the best deal on accommodations, and wondering about the cost difference between a hotel vs. an Airbnb. A new survey from German camping site Campsy has revealed the average price per night for hotels (of all different star ratings), hostels, and peer-to-peer accommodation services, such as Airbnb and Homeaway.

The results are fascinating, and we hope that revealing the truth about hotel vs. Airbnb pricing helps you plan the best — and most cost-effective! — summer vacation possible.
