Morocco is one of the ’exotic’ destinations listed by the German travel agency Tourlane as cheaper destinations than the German beer festival Oktoberfest.
Rabat – The leading online travel agency for personalized vacations, Tourlane, conducted a study to determine how expensive a weekend at Oktoberfest is, and what surprising destinations are cheaper than a weekend at Oktoberfest.
“Every year thousands of German travelers plan a visit to Oktoberfest. But we wanted to find out what kind of vacations they could experience for the same amount of money,” noted Manuel Stegmann, Head of Travel Product at Tourlane.
“We are excited to show travelers a variety of amazing destinations that they can travel to for even less than a weekend break in their home country,” he added.
The agency came up with a list of ‘exotic’ destinations where Germans can spend one week for less than what they would spend at Oktoberfest. The 186th Oktoberfest will be held between September 21 and October 6.
Based on the costs of accommodation, roundtrip flights, ground transportation, food, drinks, activities, and souvenirs, the price per person for a weekend at Oktoberfest is estimated at €1,356.56, according to Tourlane’s press release.
The agency’s list of alternative destinations includes Mauritius, Panama, Seychelles, Jordan, and Morocco. “Turns out, a weekend of beer-swilling costs Germans more than a week-long vacation to the gorgeous country of Morocco!”
According to the study, a one-week stay in Morocco costs from €835 per person. The trip prices per person and for one-week include roundtrip flights, accommodation for seven nights, daily breakfast, and rental car via Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Fes, and Marrakech.
As for beer, Germans can still enjoy it for only €17,78 instead of €47,20.
“For one-third of the price you can experience a fairy tale from “One Thousand and One Nights,” says the agency.
