Brits Viva Las Vegas

Searches to Vegas have increased by 159%* following the release of the Hangover III

While the Hangover III may have drawn a less-than-enthusiastic response from film critics, the last installment of the trilogy has proved a hit with fans, with Hotels.com recording recent search increases of 159% to Vegas following the film’s release, as people seek to celebrate the last wild adventure of the ‘Wolf Pack’.

The film, which knocked blockbuster Fast and Furious 6 off the UK Box Office top spot and grossed £5.9 million in it’s opening weekend, has proved as popular as ever with its fans; so much so that it is influencing their travel plans and inspiring Britons to head to Vegas.

Las Vegas is a great destination for Britons seeking five star luxury on a budget.  Data from the latest Hotels.com Hotel Price Index reveals that the average price of a five star hotel in Vegas in 2012 was £146, the cheapest of any of America’s major cities.

Laura Watts from Hotels.com said, “The third and final installment of the Hangover trilogy has not only taken the box office by storm here in the UK, but has also created a surge of interest in Las Vegas as a holiday destination.  The escapades of the ‘Wolf Pack’ seem to be encouraging Britons to travel and experience their own wild adventures in one of the world’s most notorious party cities!”
