The cost of a beach vacation in the UK has been on the rise in recent years, with the average price per day rising to £19.90, according to data from Expedia.
The cost for a day of swimming in a lagoon in the South West, £13.60, is the cheapest.
A recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) suggested that the cost of holidaying in the country has increased by 10 per cent a year since 2010, and that the average rate of inflation is now 5 per cent.
The number of people on holiday increased by 12 per cent between 2013 and 2016.
The cost of housing for people living abroad has also increased by 30 per cent in the past five years.
The rate of house price growth in the capital, London, has risen by 12.5 per cent, with a total increase of £5,637, from £11,948 in 2014.
The number of foreign nationals living in London has also risen by more than 10 per, with nearly two million of them living there, according in 2016.
Foreigners making up 20 per cent of the population of the capital are more likely to be renting.
In comparison, a quarter of London’s population is foreign-born, while only a quarter live in a flat or apartment, according PwC.
The increase in demand for holiday accommodation is likely to have played a key role in the increase in prices.
“While there are a lot of factors at play for the rising cost of accommodation, there are also a number of factors that have driven the cost to go up, with rising numbers of people staying in overcrowded accommodation,” said Laura Sainsbury, senior economist at PwCs property division.
“For many people, the rising costs of accommodation will come as a surprise.”
“The cost is a direct result of rising rents, but there are other factors that also affect the price,” she added.
“There are a number factors that affect the cost, such as increased population, increased demand for accommodation and an increasing cost of living.”
It is unclear whether the rise is the result of more expensive accommodation, as many people prefer to stay in cheaper accommodation.
PwCs research also found that in 2016, there were 6.3 million foreign-owned homes in London, a rise of 5 per,000.
The price of a flat in the city has also continued to rise, with average rents rising by 4 per cent last year.
The average rent for a flat at a property in the East End rose by 4.9 per cent from 2016 to 2017.
The rise in the number of London households with two or more people living in the same flat has also been on an increasing trend, with an increase of 6 per cent since 2013.
The proportion of the city’s population who are foreign-based grew from 7 per cent to 11 per cent over the same period, while the number living abroad also increased from 4 per,700 to 5,300.
There are also more foreign nationals who are currently living in households than at any time since 2005, according the latest data.
